Why Should You Join the Junior Chamber?


Becoming a member of the chamber of commerce provides opportunities to give back to the community and capitalize on significant member benefits; serving in the leadership raises your recognition, visibility and credibility, as well as that of your business.


Each month, as we receive requests for goods and services, we send them directly to our members. As a chamber we try to keep the money flowing within the community and make those dollars work for our community.


Consider further diversifying your network by joining your local chamber of commerce. Unlike a referral networking group, professional society or trade association, a chamber does not limit the number of people who can join from any one profession or industry.


Chamber members receive real exposure through our member directories online listing. Get a listing for your e-mail address on our Chamber website which will include contact name and telephone number.


The Chamber provides you with opportunities to meet with other members in order to promote your business and develop long-term relationships. Attend an event or two to see whether the membership is a good fit for you. Membership is not free, but it’s far less expensive than traditional advertising.
