Your Chamber played an instrumental role in securing this amazing showcase of the city. Chamber representatives including our Promotion & Marketing committee worked aggressively for more than a year to secure this opportunity. Once the decision was confirmed to feature New Berlin, we continued our work to help identify unique and interesting people, places, and organizations to represent the city within the framework and requirements of the show's producer.
We also worked to help contact and follow up with those featured in the episode as well as organizing the free, public, preview show.
The Chamber has been working to strengthen Business and Community since our inception in 1959 and this is a great way to continue that work as we begin our 61st year.
