Display Your Member Plaque Proudly
Is your membership plaque displayed in a prominent location? Study results are clear…do not underestimate the added note of distinction and respect Chamber membership will bring your business! A recent independent national study has revealed that Consumers are 63% more likely to buy from Chamber members, and the study also reveals good news for Chamber member businesses that sell to other businesses.
It is a fact that local businesses are affected by their Chamber membership status. Scott Kilgore, from Koorsen Fire & Security - Mansfield, OH states, “I knew Chamber membership was important, but I just never got around to sending in my application.
