Benefits of Membership
Why Should You Join?
Our community depends on strong leadership from people who have a vested interest in the financial and political success of the area. Business owners, consumers, and city officials have no other place to gather and exchange ideas and discuss real issues that challenge our communities growth. No matter if you own a small business, work for a major corporation or just pay your local taxes your Chamber needs YOU!
As a consumer, you’ll find a wide array of business professionals who can serve your needs. Busy life schedules often prevent you from getting to know your service providers, but with just an hour and a half out of your week, you can build friendships with professionals from all walks of life.
As a business owner, you have the opportunity to keep your business name in front of your consumers. Business owners are also consumers! Keeping current with what’s happening in the lives of other chamber members can be an advantage for you next time someone needs your product or service. Chamber members have a natural propensity towards doing business, first, with other chamber members.
Charitable outreach is a part of the American way of life. No other country is as giving as America and when the chips are down the entire world looks to us for help. The East Portland Chamber of Commerce is a strong supporter of several local charities. Being a member of the chamber gives you full access to the people who run the charities–giving you a chance to know who is behind the cause. You also have opportunities to get involved that you otherwise would have if you only used internet search engines.
Leadership, service, commerce and charity. Do you need any more reasons to join?
