Why Join our Chamber of Commerce?

Each year as we finish one year and begin the next, I get more people asking me, "Why join the chamber of commerce?" Here are some reasons:

Chambers conduct social and business events where you can socialize and develop relationships. Becoming a member of a chamber of commerce provides opportunities to give back to the community and capitalize on significant member benefits; serving in the leadership (being an Ambassador, board member, or sitting on one of our committees) raises your recognition, visibility and credibility, as well as that of your business.

When your company joins the Chamber, all of your employees gain access to our extensive network of businesses and professionals found throughout our chamber network.

Connect & Grow
Networking Opportunities – At least 54 events each year designed to help build your business garner new clients and find out what’s happening in our community. Join our chamber member partners and watch your business grow.

Business Exposure is one of the top reasons members say they find value in their chamber investment. There’s no shortage of opportunities for maximum exposure as part of the chamber.

Membership has its privileges. You can save in a variety of areas from health insurance to advertising thanks to your partnership with the chamber.

Seminars designed just for you – Want to learn how to market your business? What’s happening in our community that impacts your business? How to maximize your social media? The chamber offers a number of seminars and programs designed to help you be successful.

Membership is not free, but it’s far less expensive than traditional advertising.
