A chamber of commerce is a group of businesses that supports the interests of its members. Each chamber of commerce will elect its own leadership and decide what agendas to pursue. A chamber does not create laws, but it may influence pro-business policies by lobbying legislators. Many organizations join their local chamber of commerce for networking opportunities to meet other members of your community and form business relationships. Over time, the relationships you build can lead to valuable business partnerships. Plus, if your business ever runs into trouble, you have a network to turn to for assistance. When you join your local chamber of commerce, your business will be listed in the chamber’s online directory, and your business could be highlighted in other chamber publications. You can also increase your publicity by sponsoring events and advertising with your chamber. Plus, customers think more favorably of businesses that are part of a chamber of commerce and are 63% more likely to make a purchase from your business in the future.
