Our History and Future
The Chain O’ Lakes Area has always thrived off the connectivity of each community along the waterway. Fox Lake had a successful and well-established chamber for over 100 years, Richmond-Spring Grove had a flourishing chamber for 25 years, and Volo became the 15th fastest growing city in Illinois as of 2020: together they combined to strategize to create more opportunities and form more relationships between businesses.
Sometimes in “waves” of change, we find a new direction- creating the Chain O’ Lakes Area Chamber to have access to…
• More networking events
• More efficiency and influence around the community
• Cost/resource savings
• Larger pool of volunteers
• Four signature events
