What is the Value of Chamber Membership?

In today's new economy, many businesses are seeking new markets. One traditional avenue of business development that is enjoying a resurgence is becoming a member of the local business community by joining a local Chamber of Commerce.

Wikipedia defines a Chamber of Commerce as "[A] form of business network, e.g., a local organization of businesses whose goal is to further the business interests of the community. 

Generally, chambers of commerce serve the following purposes:

  • Creating a strong local economy
  • Promoting the community
  • Providing networking opportunities
  • Speaking with government on behalf of business
  • Political action, such as getting pro-business candidates elected to office"

What can your local Chamber do for you?  The Morris County Chamber of Commerce has developed a video (courtesy of Grey Sky Films) talking about the benefits of Chamber membership. I guess the fact that the video but features me underscores the value of my clients have found with Chamber membership!
