Benefits of Membership

As the voice of local business, it is our mission to promote the economic, social and environmental well being of the community.
Chamber membership ... amplifies your business image
Did you know that small businesses who are member of a chamber of commerce can help you gain new and repeat customers? A national study by The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based market research firm, show ed that when people know a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 44% more likely to think favorably of that business and 63% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.
 
Chamber membership ... connects you with others
  • Meet other business leaders and influence your community by working on Chamber committees.
  • Make important contacts at monthly Chamber Membership Mixers, hosted by members and usually attended by 300-plus people
