New members can get an additional six months for free and current members can get an additional three months up to a year membership for free!
The Pike County Chamber of Commerceís current Member Promotion is that from now until March 31, 2014 if a business joins the Pike Chamber and pays in full, they will get an additional six months membership for free along with all of the other benefits. If a current paid Pike Chamber member in good standing brings in a new member of equal or greater annual membership investment value, the current memberís membership will extend for another three months. So that means if a current member brings four new members, they can get a free membership for one year!
Local Chambers are an extremely valuable resource for business planning, making business connections, marketing, and promotion to assist with sustainability and growth. Taking advantage of such resources from your Chamber membership can make a significant difference in a business operation.
The Chamber of Commerce is a catalystĖ a common vehicle through which business and professional people work together for the common good of the community. A better community means better business conditions, and we work for a better community for everyone. Thatís why we do what we do and now is a great time to band together and grow. A greater membership makes more options available.
A stronger Chamber means more services for our members. An increase in membership will result in more flexibility when it comes to adding on additional programs and services for our members. A larger Chamber means better networking. Obviously, for every new member that we have, that's one additional business that will read your press release in the newsletter, see your ad on our Web site, meet you at business card exchange and find your services in our membership directory.
Members will each have their own reasons for joining but some of the benefits that Pike County Chamber does for its members are connections to new customers/clients through networking, low-cost advertising, tools to increase profits, business consulting, exposure, lobbying and advocating on behalf of businesses, promoting areas businesses and working on economic development projects in the region. Member businesses range from realtors to financial planners, retail shops to art galleries, restaurants, at home consultants, physicians and lawyers; but we all share a common goal of making Pike County a viable place to do business.
Membership is what makes a Chamber of Commerce. Members provide the ideas, the drive, the goals, the funds and the voluntary services to keep the Chamber doing what it does through your participation. Joining your local Chamber of Commerce shows a sign of quality and commitment. The Chamber would not be what it is today without the dedication and support of our membership. The staff can come and go but the membership is the constant that keeps the ship afloat.
