Aligning with a trusted brand and a valuable community resource

The Chamber of Commerce is a well-respected brand and an internationally recognized resource within the local community. Consumers look to the chamber of commerce to provide trusted information and recommendations, and generally recognize that the chamber helps create jobs and promotes local economic development.

According to a national study by The Schapiro Group:

Consumers are 63% more likely to buy from chamber members, and fellow business associates are 59% more likely to buy goods and services from you if they know you are a Chamber member.

Joining the Chamber of Commerce is a valuable investment in your success, and increases consumer perception of your reliability.
