The municipalities of Bethalto, Godfrey, Grafton and Wood River, along with The RiverBend Growth Association will celebrate Illinois Chamber of Commerce Week Sept. 11 to 15.
The week celebrates the hard work and accomplishments of Chambers of Commerce and the communities they represent. The above municipalities have all signed a proclamation in recognition.
Although their work is often done behind the scenes, the RBGA staff, ambassadors, board of directors, and others are constantly involved in the many areas of the River Bend community. This includes business development, business recruitment and retention, education and workforce development, advocacy in Springfield and Washington, D.C., and networking.
The RBGA works constantly to support the growth of its membership and the Riverbend Community, and continues to help build a prosperous and sustainable community, said RBGA’s President Monica Bristow.
