Hire Your Chamber
That sounds strange, doesn't it? All these years you have been asked to 'join' your Chamber, but each member does a lot more than just join when they pay their membership investment.
Your Chamber does many things for the business and professional communities and general public which they might not be able to do alone. Your Chamber provides services and benefits that completely overshadow your costs - that is, your membership investment - when you hire your Chamber.
You Hire Your Chamber...
...As a watch-dog to protect your interest in local, state and national legislation that may affect your business community.
...To work for more and better job opportunities for the people who patronize your business.
...To promote a good public image of your community for business and industry.
...To assist you in marketing your product and services.
Now, doesn't that phrase 'Hire your Chamber' sound logical? When you write a check for your membership, think of it in these terms. You are hiring your Chamber, its staff and services, as a valuable part of your business or profession.
Your investment is deductible as a 'necessary item of business expense.' It is not a contribution or gift you are making...it's an investment in your business and your community!
