IVAC issues response to La Salle’s decision to leave the chamber

Posted by wlpo on July 28, 2010

With one of their larger communities deciding to pullout, Illinois Valley Area Chamber of Commerce officials are responding saying they understand given the difficult financial times.

IVAC issued a statement Wednesday morning.  The La Salle City Council was unanimous in deciding to not continue their membership Monday night.  An annual membership for the city cost $13,000.

IVAC says they “disagree with their decision and feel that the accepted and unified approach to economic development is more effective and efficient.”  They say “they will be happy to enter into discussions if La Salle decides to rejoin in six months.”
