Chamber of Commerce

If you've joined your town's chamber of commerce have you found it beneficial to your business? My local chamber of commerce has been on a heavy recruitment spree and I seem to be on their radar.

Same here! I'm looking into it. On one hand, I think it would be beneficial to have a voice but not sure how beneficial. What I need to know is how much time will I need to "donate" to the Chamber.

@Shelbii, it can get expensive because there are usually regular dues to pay. Sometimes they charge for events as well.

@Urban Homestead, whether it's worth it will really depend on your specific CoC. I've been a member for years because they do a lot to support local businesses and it's a great networking opportunity. I get a lot of bang for my buck! Unfortunately, some other CoCs do little more than take your money. Maybe you could check around to see how others feel about their membership in your area.
