Partnership at a Glance
Why should you join?
Chambers remain one of the best ways to network with other entrepreneurs, businesses and community members in virtually any community. Membership brings credibility to your business! Let’s start with some important research data according to a study conducted by the Schapiro Group, which showed that 63% of consumers were more likely to purchase a product or service from a Chamber member.
- Develop new Relationships
This isn't about networking; this is about gaining new friends, associates and advocates.
- Create Visibility
The age-old adage applies here — “out of sight, out of mind.” While many companies are looking to be seen in the cyber world and are doing a very good job of it, nothing sells your business better than being in front of people face to face.
- Leverage Promotion
Chambers offer a wide-range of advertising options and sponsorship packages. A business can sponsor entire programs or events through a chamber.
- Create Community Connections
Some business leaders in large companies have expressed the feeling they’re too big or not local enough to require local chambers of commerce services. One flaw in that thinking is they and their employees are very much a part of the local economy, regardless of the number of franchise locations they have in other states. We provide many opportunities to keep our partners aware of what’s happening in our community.
- Participate in Chamber Programs & Events
Chamber events include business training luncheons, networking specific events, awards banquets, city celebration events and many others specific to each chamber. All of these events are designed to build your business in some fashion, whether through training, promotion, networking or community service and can be the perfect addition to the other methods a business employs for building their business.
