Doreen Vitek, Emerald Queen Hotel & Casino:

We just recently joined the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce. We joined forces with the Lakewood Chamber because of the excitement and commitment Linda, Mary Ann and Scott bring to every event we participate in. Participating in the Another Bloomin’ Tradeshow in spring, The BOO Bash in October and the After Hours events allows us the opportunity to connect with the people of the South Sound we already serve, then offers us the added opportunity to find new and cutting edge tools to broaden our business base. The events and on going educational seminars offered at the Chamber are dialed into what the business community needs in keeping us current on issues and tools to survive in somewhat tough economic times.
