You move into a community, or open a business and all of a sudden everyone wants you to join their organization. Having trouble deciding if you should be a part of - civic, business, social, cultural, faith based organization? Wondering what the commitments are or what is the cost involved? 


There are a lot of questions to ask that will help you make the most out of the organization(s) you decide to be a part of.  At the Chamber, we always say that membership is what you put into it, which applies to our organization and many others.  Involvement in a membership based organization is what you make of it. Taking advantage of meeting people in the organization will help you succeed.  They are like-minded and can help you expand your network as well as build both professional and personal friendships.


Many organizations offer member based programs from guest speakers and meetings, to special promotions and discounts.  These are often geared towards the mission of the organization and are designed to provide added value to belonging.  Member meetings are a great place to find out what is happening in your community and where you can provide your input and services.


Read your member newsletter. Membership organizations often produce a newsletter updating members on important dates and information.  It is a general way the officers of the organization can notify you as to what they have been working on and what opportunities are available for you. We also recommend staying on top of your organizations social media and website as well to stay informed.  Social media is a great way to interact in between meetings and events.


The Chamber of Commerce is a membership based organization.  We are deeply rooted in the community and strive to work for our members. We think of ourselves as connectors, connecting you to others to help your business succeed.  Contact our office to find out where your strengths can be used!
