Benefits of Membership
We invite you to explore the opportunities that are open to you by joining the Chamber!
Advocates of chambers of commerce have long believed that when a company is active in its local chamber, it is doing the right thing not only for the community but for its own success as well. While there is plenty of evidence to show the impact of chambers of commerce in their communities, it is much harder to find data that quantify the impact of belonging to the chamber.
The Schapiro Group and Market Street Services completed a study designed to determine the real value to companies in terms of consumer outcomes of joining and being active in their local chamber of commerce. Data for the study comes from a scientific web-based survey of 2,000 adults nationwide. (This study is completed every 5 years.)
If you're considering joining the chamber and want to determine if it should be part of your business strategy and whether or not chamber membership is valuable, we encourage you to read this study:
