Members value their Chamber membership because it gives them access to programs, benefits and resources. In addition, they connect to the business community in a variety of ways. Here are examples of why they continue to invest in their membership.
I joined the Chamber in 2015 when I started my business. Being new to the area, I didn’t know many people so I joined the local Chamber to get my business known and introduce myself to other local people. I’m glad I did, because I now have access to invaluable business resources and help from the Chamber Staff. As a result, I connected with other business owners and made many new clients. I’m happy to renew my membership every year, as it continues to pay off in many ways.
Originally we joined the chamber to generate more business activity and make the community aware of who we are as a not-for-profit organization. Now that we’ve been a member for several years we recognize even more benefits. Our chamber not only promotes our services but connects us directly with interested and potential new members or customers, and organizes excellent networking events. They are strong government advocates and ensure we are aware of issues related to our organization from all levels of government.
When we opened up our Restaurant in Campbellford, Sideways Bar and Grill, we wanted to become a member of the Trent Hills Chamber of Commerce as we felt that it would give us exposure and support in the community and also with anyone coming to visit.
We felt that it would create awareness and help promote our restaurant for a minimal investment, as the membership is very affordable.
Visitors in the area embrace the knowledge of the community that the Chamber of Commerce provides and we felt this would be very beneficial for us being a member where folks can find out about us.
The staff are very helpful responding to our questions or providing guidance. We would recommend any business in the area become a Member of the Chamber.
We joined the Chamber because we believe it’s good to promote our business where we can. The Chamber allows us to reach a larger audience away from Warkworth and our gallery by advertising in the Trent Hills guide and having our rack card available at the office. We appreciate the work you do on behalf of businesses.
As a new business in Trent Hills, I felt it was essential to join the Chamber of Commerce for various reasons. The Chamber has been fundamental in advising the community that Everygreen Valley Retreat exists – from distributing our business cards and rack cards at the Chamber office, to newsletters, and online distributions. The regular seminars and speakers the Chamber provides are always helpful to a growing business. Business is an essential part of a thriving community and the Chamber is a key business partner.
