The Chamber Rebrands

Network DeSoto Specialist 0 185

The DeSoto Chamber of Commerce has taken a fresh look at its image and presence in the community. Though there are many successes upon which it can build, the leaders believe that a fresh new look and new focus towards the business community is in order.  This rebranding effort will bring together forward thinking strategies to make the DeSoto area an environment conducive for economic growth and prosperity.
