Marc Owens announced to all those present for the Dec. 6 social mixer in Santa Ynez: “We are now a chamber!” The newly formed Santa Ynez Chamber of Commerce has more than 90 members. Owens invited those present to sign up for committees and put their names on a list, to run for the Board of Directors for the new Non-Profit Corporation, which will hold elections at its January meeting.

On Nov. 30, the Development Committee forwarded the request to our council to move forward with incorporation and applications for exempt status. The chamber will be organized under IRC 501(c)(6) Business Leagues.
