Good question. As a small business in a tough economy, chamber membership may seem like an expense you don’t need. Chambers of Commerce provide four types of services and functions to support their members:
- Networking opportunities.
- Promotion through advertising and referrals.
- Development through access to business services, education, and information.
- Advocacy to government authorities and the community at large.
We believe we are meeting these needs, but we need to hear from you how we can do better. There is a Two-Minute Survey posted on our website. Please take two minutes to fill this out, and return it to us, so we can continually improve our services to you.
In the interim, we want to invite you to a FREE All-Member Get-Together. This will be a chance for Chamber members to meet and mingle. This will be held from 5:00 to 7:30 PM, Tuesday June 9th at Anthony’s of Malden. Please plan on coming, especially if you haven’t attended a Chamber event recently. Also, don’t forget our upcoming Annual Awards Banquet on May 14th. Call us if you need to make a reservation.
We are once again offering onsite business counseling from the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE) and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). This is a free service for business owners and those thinking of starting a business.
Call us for an appointment.
