We encourage you to take this opportunity to demonstrate your expertise with this micro-blog. Guest blogging is an ideal way to get even more out of your membership. Boost your networking power at Chamber events with this great icebreaker. Build your reputation as an authority among your peers. We welcome your submission but ask that you first review these guidelines:

Quality Requirements:   The perfect post is not about your business, your products, or your services but your valuable insights into any subject matter relating to what goes into running a business. It could be about one of the resource links provided. Share your knowledge, informing readers to the positive impact that resource provides. Perhaps stories and experiences expressed in a blog about can be an inspiration. Your goal is to demonstrate relevant value beyond general knowledge. Topical, curated content may be referenced but should not dominate the post.

It is not a term paper, so it is best written in a conversational style. Read your post aloud. Does it sound like something you would say when talking to another member?
