Why Chamber Membership is for your Business?
A nationwide study showed that people who were told a particular small business was a member of a local chamber, were 49% more likely to rate it favorably than those without a chamber affiliation. Respondents were also 80% more likely to want to purchase goods or services from a small business that is a chamber member.
