As our state’s professional development association for chamber staff, we are dedicated to providing members with education and insight into the latest trends and issues facing our chambers and communities, along with being a forum to connect and collaborate with peers from throughout New York. Those who succeed long-term in chamber work have a willingness to never stop learning. Chamber professionals who succeed long-term invest in the development of their staff members, realizing that an educated, committed staff is key to an impactful chamber. I encourage you to tap into the resources available through CANYS. Don’t hesitate to reach out to any member of the CANYS Board of Directors to chat about how we can collaborate!
