Why Should I Be a Member of My Chamber of Commerce?

  • Because the Chamber of Commerce unifies the public spirits of my community and directs it into useful and constructive channels
  • Because I have a business at stake in the community, which can be best safeguarded by working with others throughout the Chamber of Commerce to protect and advance all businesses
    Because my support is “plowed back” to yield many benefits in new industry, increased payroll, health, safety, legislation, business protection and community advancement
  • Because through the Chamber of Commerce I can best discharge my obligations to this community in which I live and earn my living.  I realize that every person owes a debt to the community that cannot be paid in taxes---a debt of personal service.
  • Because an active membership in my Chamber of Commerce carries with it a sense of accomplishment and inner satisfaction for the knowledge that I am doing my share of an important job.
