  • Why Your Dad Was Right About Chamber Memberships

  • Why Your Dad Was Right About Chamber Memberships

    If All Your Friends Jumped off of a Bridge, Would You?

    The chamber isn’t a cookie-cutter organization offering a one-size solution to your business problems. It’s not an equation. The help you can find at the chamber is personalized to your business. It’s not about following the crowd, unless you consider personalized best practices or listening to experts in your field as following the crowd.
     

    Manners Don’t Cost a Dime

    Manners don’t cost a dime and neither does making the most of your chamber membership. Whether you make lifelong connections that will help your business prosper or you never do anything with your chamber membership, the fee is the same. So, what do you say? Why not get involved as much as possible or use those resources to maximum advantage? You have everything to gain and nothing more to spend.
     

    Watch the Other Guy

    Keeping an eye on the competition is important. But in today’s global economy it doesn’t need to just be your competition you keep an eye on. Many successful business people become that way by applying a business’ success in another industry to their own. Seeing those possibilities and connections can help you grow in a way your competition isn’t. The chamber can assist you in keeping an eye on the other guy but will also help you discover valuable lessons from other business professionals, things that may just help you solve a challenge in your own business.
     

    Life Is Better When You Have a Good Time—and Bring Others Along for the Ride

    Chambers aren’t stodgy business groups like some people believe. They’re comprised of professionals who want to achieve business success and help the community along the way. They advocate for pro-business legislation and bring innovative ideas to the town. They also can throw one heck of an event and they love bringing people along for the ride.
     
    While today’s chamber is not your dad’s, or even your mom’s, chamber it still benefits your business. While their programs and offerings have changed with the times, their value is as beneficial as your parents’ advice. You may ignore it at first, but ultimately it leads to your growth.
