Joining the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce was one of the most important decisions we made when we started our business many years ago. The networking and advertising opportunities have been vital to the growth and success of business. I can't think of any organization more dedicated to the success of small business.
—Neil Hamilton, President/CEO Hamilton Insurance Group, Inc.
Our membership in the Chamber has helped me to meet and become friends with other business professionals. I recommend that any business consider joining the Chamber as it offers many opportunities that any business, but especially a new business, needs to succeed.

I can think of many ways that the Richland Area Chamber has benefited us. We have seen the largest benefit by taking advantage of the many quality networking opportunities they offer. We have also developed some lifelong business and personal relationships through that networking.

Working with the staff at the Chamber has been nothing but a pleasure. Their willingness to collaborate and think big for Mansfield and Richland County is exactly the attitude the organization needs to have to succeed.

Not only are the discounts really helpful, but the additional exposure we got as Chamber members generated revenue within the first month! As small business owners, we can't afford TO NOT belong to the Chamber!

Already I am impressed with the number of contacts we have had with other members since joining.
—Kathleen Jackson, Senior Employment Center/Mature Services
I knew Chamber membership was important, but I just never got around to sending in my application. Then I discovered I had lost an account to a competitor simply because they were a Chamber member and my business was not. Needless to say, I contacted the Chamber immediately.

We believe being a member of the Chamber is extremely beneficial. We have enjoyed meeting other companies in area, and in some cases, setting up strategic alliances. We also enjoy the educational benefits by being a member of the Chamber. We have always found them to be very informative.

I have been involved with the Richland County Chamber for about the last 15-20 years. It is one of the best organizations in the entire county that represents small business.
—Bud Vetter, Lawyer's Title
We have been a member of the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce for several years now and we participate in the Member-to-Member Discount Program. We have also hosted and participated in a number of Business After Hours Events and found them to be a great networking opportunity.
I have been a member since 2004. I get a lot of networking time with a lot of local business. Membership makes smart business sense. It is actually money well spent.
