Why should I join the Chamber?
Frequently I am asked about what the benefits are to joining the Chamber of Commerce. While the list above represents some pretty convincing reasons, there is more to the story. Being a Chamber member makes you more interconnected with the community and provides you with a way to network with others and make those key contacts you need to make your business grow. It gives you and your business greater visibility in the area, an important benefit in these challenging economic times. Chamber members are also represented at levels of government by our frequent interaction with local and state legislators and officials. We work for you.
If you have thought about joining the Chamber, consider this an invitation. If you have let your membership lapse, I welcome you back. And as always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
