Donnie Bell, owner of Donnie Bell Design, LLC, was recently elected to serve on the Lincoln-Parish Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. He will serve a three-year term in this capacity. Have you ever wondered what the chamber does? Here is a glimpse into its functionality.
The local chamber represents all of Lincoln Parish not only Ruston. The members of the organization act as representatives for area businesses by adopting policies and resolutions in an effort to produce a strong local economy. Additionally, the chamber distributes business, tourism, and relocation information daily through the mail. Many times the chamber is someone’s initial contact with the community. To keep citizens informed about local events, the organization maintains a calendar of local happenings. Donnie said that he decided to serve on the chamber board “as a way to get more involved in the community.”
One interesting fact about the chamber is that it is funded by the programs that it plans like the Squire Creek Peach Festival and the Ruston Gun and Knife Show. In short, the chamber gives to the community and the community gives back.Tweet
