"Two things prompt legislatures: dollars and numbers of people," Harris said. "The bigger the organization is, the stronger your voice, and most small businesses don't have the resources to have their own lobbyists."

Unit will spearhead personal contacts with chamber members to see what other services the organization can provide.

"I'm a guy that if a business has a question, I want them to give me a call," he said. "I need the feedback to find out what they're looking for from the chamber."

In addition to working with members, Unit will be heavily involved in chamber events and programs, such as the Triple B festival, which this year celebrates its 10th anniversary.

Harris said he has big expectations for the role Unit will play in the chamber of commerce, knows he can rely on Unit, and  feels the duo are on the same wavelength.
