Gateway To The Future

One Vision | One Voice | One Jackson County

Are you ready for the future?

Dear Community Leader:

Thank you for taking the time to review this historic undertaking for the Mountain Lakes Chamber of Commerce, previously known as the Greater Jackson County Chamber of Commerce. I have no doubt you will agree that now is the time for CHANGE! Now is the time for ACTION! It is my hope and respectful request that you will join me to lead this most important initiative for our region.

The world has changed infinitely more in the last 30 years than it has in the last 100. How we conduct business has morphed considerably from our ability to send a facsimile to having the power of a personal computer that fits into the palm of our hand.

For years, high-tech companies seemed out of reach for rural areas and only major metropolitan areas could meet the technology demand of these tech giants. That too has changed. With growing access to fiber networks, these companies are realizing the benefits of rural areas such as; accessible cost-effective land, available trained workforce, low cost of living, superior schools, quality of life and unlimited recreational activities.
