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.
