There is not a more effective way to get your firm’s name before the public and business community. Here’s how:
SIERRA VISTA MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY
All members receive two free listings in this annual Membership Directory, alphabetical and categorical. Members also receive equivalent listings on the Chamber website, www.sierravistachamber.org.
MEMBER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
All member investors are entitled to a free web page, which the Chamber will host on their server. With the enhanced modules, members will be able to track webpage traffic through monthly e-mails and build personalized on-line catalogs. This is the perfect resource to market and grow your business.
The Chamber offers members a variety of ways to support local businesses, which include a Chamber gift certificate program, Member to Member discounts and an online catalog service.
There are a number of ways in which you can increase your exposure, including free display space in our lobby, paid advertising on the Chamber of Commerce website, the Vista quartery Mailer and an Annual Map and Membership Directory. Another benefit is Chamber mailing labels available for purchase, which give you direct access to business prospects.
The monthly Chamber Vista newsletter recognizes your firm upon joining the Chamber. We also offer free publicity to members announcing new products, services, promotions and advancements.
The Chamber receives thousands of requests each year for recommendations on goods and services. We refer ONLY Chamber members to these newcomers, visitors and area residents.
Your Sierra Vista Area Chamber of Commerce plaque on your wall tells everyone you “mean business”.
The Chamber tracks local, state and federal issues that affect our members. Our job is to advocate the business viewpoint to all levels of government so that public policy decisions lead to a healthy business climate and better quality of life.
Our Chamber’s membership and active participation with the U.S. and Arizona Chambers of Commerce buys you the information and lobbying strength of both of these powerful pro-business organizations. Regionally, we represent you on many groups dealing with water issues and workforce development.
?Through Chamber publications and candidate forums, we keep you informed. We also work at ensuring that our elected officials understand the concerns of the business community.
While we endeavor to provide the highest quality service to our members and the community, we also feel that members should get something more tangible out of their investment. We provide a State Fund Association Safety Plan, discounted insurance and other benefits.
Our Annual Membership Meeting and New Member Welcome events leave attendees with a much deeper understanding of the benefits of membership and how to increase membership value through active participation.
The Chamber’s purpose is to advocate for the business community. The Sierra Vista Area Chamber of Commerce is also concerned about the well being of the entire community. This is why we have such programs as Leadership Sierra Vista, Military Affairs, Water Initiative, Voter Registration & Education and the annual Holiday Parade.
