We would like to take this opportunity to highlight the many “to your door” benefits as well as training and growth opportunities your membership brings to you.
Referrals – Every day the Chamber puts potential customers in touch with member businesses and organizations through our referral services. The Chamber has hundreds of walk-in visitors and phone inquiries each year. Referrals are constantly given on member firms. Every request is answered promptly and courteously, creating a favorable impression for our community. This is a key element in our commitment to helping members prosper.
Community Growth – The Chamber is the community’s “Front Door”. Whether it be a phone call, and email request or a walk-in visit, we sell Clinton. Creating a positive first impression helps bring new residents and businesses to the community.
Communication – Through the newsletter, the weekly Chamber Update and broadcast emails and faxes, Chamber members are provided with business information and opportunities to voice their opinions and/or concerns.
Information Research – Chamber staff will gladly assist Chamber members in obtaining necessary information and data for business related activities.
Marketing Services – Increasing public awareness of the many businesses, industries and community service organizations in our area is a core function of the Chamber. Members are promoted through their listing in the Chamber’s Annual Membership Directory and in the Member section of the Chamber web site. These listings are part of your membership investment.
Literature Display – All Chamber members are invited to keep the Chamber office supplied with their most recent brochures. Our door is always open and we have numerous visitors daily.
Gift Certificates – Area employers show their support for the community and encourage their employees to “Shop in Clinton” by giving and redeeming Chamber Gift Certificates. These certificates are available at the Chamber office and can be purchased in any amount. They are not redeemable for cash, thus encouraging shopping “locally”.
Yearly Member Emblem – All members receive a membership sticker to enhance your business image and provide confidence in your customers that you are an established and professional business.
Information – Everything anyone needs to know about the Clinton area is available at the Chamber office. Resources include telephone directories, maps, club and organization lists, community profiles and much more.
Business After Hours – Through our monthly “Business After Hours” get-togethers, Chamber members have the opportunity to build relationships, exchange business cards and make new contacts.
Committee Involvement – The Chamber has a variety of committees and projects that are open to member involvement. This is another tool to build business relationships while also serving the community.
Ribbon Cuttings/Ground Breakings/Special Anniversary Recognitions – When expanding a business or bringing a new business to town, the Chamber will help you create a marketing event to make others in the community aware of your business growth. When your business celebrates that special Anniversary (10, 20, 25 years in business, etc.), the Chamber will visit your business, present an anniversary cake and provide a photo and write-up to the local media.
