Why join the Chamber?

We run programs that offer promotional materials, events and activities to welcome new residents and businesses to the area, ensuring that your business is front and centre and ahead of the local competition with this very valuable target audience.

Networking — While today’s technology and the ability to network online may have you wondering if the local Chamber of Commerce way of doing business in person is obsolete, think again. There’s still nothing as strong as face-to-face communication where building trust, respect and name recognition is concerned...nothing. And it’s only through building that level of relationship over time that you are likely to acquire customer referrals and find the most suitable vendors, consultants and distributors you need to help you grow your small business long-term.

Mentoring — Having a mentor when you are starting or trying to grow your own small business, and the local Chamber of Commerce is a great place to find one. It’s also a great place for you as an established small business owner or entrepreneur to offer your services to an up and comer in this regard. Nothing pays you back like paying it forward, and mentoring is no exception to that rule.

Events and programs — We facilitate a whole host of activities and events over the course of a year, each designed to help you as a small business owner to either get to know your peers, your competition or your customers that much better. These kinds of programs provide tremendous business opportunities for people to get to know one another and expand their prospect base and generate great leads.
