Chamber Importance within the Community

The local chamber of commerce is first and foremost a welcoming committee. They handle initial inquiries from prospective residents and new businesses looking to locate within the community; while promoting and helping to retain existing businesses.

Chambers help to promote businesses within the community and keep their membership focused and involved in the latest business, civic and social issues that affect them and their local area. There is no better vehicle to bring together people to discuss issues and challenges that are facing the community while allowing for opportunities to promote and grow your individual business. Chambers also give opportunities for their members to grow both professionally and individually through seminars. In addition, chambers provide a place for small businesses to learn from each other and grow.

The chamber will promote a pro-business atmosphere and is the voice of business to elected officials. They build alliances locally and statewide by being advocates for their members; resulting in a stronger community that keeps its members at the forefront.

Chambers offer access, visibility and the opportunity to network. Whether it’s through a ribbon cutting, business expo, open house or networking event, members can meet other business and residents while promoting their products and services. They offer ways for their members to be involved in the community and develop a sense of camaraderie leading to countless referrals and recommendations. People are more likely to do business with people they know, like and trust. Studies show that people are more likely to do business with a company that is a member of a chamber of commerce.
