What is a chamber of commerce?
A chamber of commerce is an organization whose main purpose is to serve and promote the businesses within its community ensuring the economic vitality of the area.
What are the benefits of joining my chamber of commerce?
There are many benefits to joining a chamber. First and foremost, it gives you an opportunity to market your own business to other business owners. In addition, your chamber can act as a conduit for you to network your business to communities outside of your own via social marketing, newsletter blasts or good old-fashioned networking events.
