Membership is an investment in the present and future, and offers an active visible opportunity to participate in shaping the future of Chatham County. Chamber membership facilitates the promotion and advertisement of your business with one annual fee. In addition, you save with Members Only! Discounts and receive discounts on events and programs. Board of Advisor members receive additional exposure and benefits.
A national study revealed that membership in your local chamber of commerce can have a compelling impact on your business's image among other local businesses as well as consumers. Being active in a local Chamber of Commerce communicates to consumers that your company uses good business practices, is reputable, cares about its customers, and is involved in the community.
Results of The Schapiro Group study show that consumers are:
- 10% more likely to think that products of a business stack up better than that of the
competition if the business is highly involved in the local chamber.
- 68% more likely to eat at a restaurant franchise within the next few months if the restaurant
is a member of the local chamber of commerce
- 36% more likely to think more favorably and buy insurance from an insurance company/agent that is a Chamber member of the local chamber of commerce
