The Chamber continues to support our business community, strengthen our members, and promote the free enterprise system in Delray Beach. Your Chamber of Commerce is strong and proactive, and it continues to provide programs, events, training opportunities and information to our members, community residents, and visitors. Wouldn’t you like to be a part of the largest pro-business organization in Delray Beach? Wouldn’t you want to be a part of an organization where business is business and not a sideline? Let me tell you more about we offer and how this Chamber of Commerce can help your business grow.
1. A Great Place to Learn – Our Chamber is a strong business organization where members can share and learn from each other.
2. Excellent Exposure - Chamber members are visible. If you are not visible, how will a customer find you? Chamber members are marketed and exposed to thousands of eyes each month through printed directories, business promotional brochures, our website, and additional social-media sources.
3. Contacts, Contacts, and Contacts – Chamber members are connected. They recommend each other to customers and fellow businesses. You can meet potential customers at every event, meeting, or program of the Chamber. If you are not there, your competition may be!!
4. A Business Voice – Your Chamber is our business advocate in sharing the free enterprise system and our local business voice on important business and community issues. You will have opportunities to learn how to interact within our community, learn about opportunities, and to voice your concerns.
5. Referrals and Referrals – When people ask for business services, we recommend our members. So do other members.
6. Involvement Opportunity - Members have more of an opportunity to be involved in making a difference in our community than those who haven’t yet realized they need to join.
7. Help Finding New Customers – Check out No. 3 and No. 5.
8. Support of Local Business and Community - We keep dollars moving in our community by helping to bring new businesses and visitors to town and by encouraging residents to shop here in their home town .
