The heart of any community lies in strong volunteer spiritand the Mountain Home Area Chamber is no different. We are currently looking to grow our volunteer team. There are various roles and responsibilities, but the main qualifier is love of community and willingness to devote time to the Chamber and our members. As a Chamber volunteer you will meet new people, share your knowledge about our area and promote the growth of our community. Volunteerism has many proven benefits such as increased self-confidence, a sense of purpose and decreased risk of depression. If you are interested involunteering with the Chamber of Commerce, please contact Angela at 425-5111.
On March 9th our Leadership Mountain Home class learned about industry and economic development in our area. The day started with a tour of Baxter Healthcare, one of Mountain Home’s top employers. Baxter makes dialysis kits that millions of patients and healthcare professionals rely on. The next stop was at Eaton. The Eaton tour took us through the process of making a hose. Eaton in Mountain Home makes over 600 varieties of high pressure hoses. Over lunch the class visited with our very own Chamber President, Jeff Pipkin, to talk about economic development in our area. The final stop of theday was at Bass Cat Boats. We were able to see the boat building process from start to finish.
