Business owners have demanding schedules, and the thought of adding one more activity to their busy calendar seems outrageous. So why should you add to your already hectic schedules to join and actively participate in the chamber of commerce?
Because membership in the local chamber offers numerous benefits and keeps business owners on top of important, ever-changing issues and trends within their community and local marketplace.
Research shows that when consumers know that a small business is a member of their local chamber of commerce, they are 44 percent more likely to think favorably of it and 63 percent more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future. (Shapiro Group, Inc.)
