Relationships. This is more than just networking opportunities. As you attend events, serve on committees and interact with people outside your normal routines, you will have the opportunity to interact with all types of people in the community. These interactions will lead to new friends and professional colleagues who will advocate for you and your business.
Visibility. Even in today's digital age, nothing sells your business better than being in front of people face to face. The Chamber of Commerce provides numerous ways to foster goodwill in the community all year long with a 12 month schedule filled with sponsorships, community/civic events, members meetings, and other social affairs.
You are the business; the business is you. Customers are more likely to purchase your goods or services when they know who is behind the operation and have seen you out in the community engaged in non-business related activities. The Chamber provides many opportunities for businesses and individuals to impact our community in a positive way, you'll be able to build authentic relationships with members and be top of mind when they or someone they know is looking for your product/service.
