Level Up in 2024 with the Hobart Chamber of Commerce

    Situated in Northwest Indiana between I94 and Rt 30 at a super quaint Rail Road House on the tracks of Rt 51, this re-energized organization is supporting Hobart businesses every day. The Chamber’s mission is to create opportunities for networking, partnerships and relationships serving the city with a vision to be a driving force in economic development and uniting the area.
     The Hobart Chamber of Commerce is on a Mission and Jay Harrigan is leading the odyssey.  You can watch Jay Harrigan on PanoramaNow Facebook Live show and get all the details, however, we will touch on plenty here.  Jay takes that same GNIAR aura and channels it right into the heart of Hobart.
