Why Should I Become a Member of My Chamber of Commerce?
Because the Chamber of Commerce unifies the public spirit of my community and directs it into useful and constructive channels.
Because I have a business at stake in the community which can be best safeguarded by working with others through the Chamber of Commerce to protect and advance all businesses.
Because my support is "plowed back" to yield the many benefits in new industry, increased payroll, health, safety, legislation, business protection, and community advancement.
Because the Chamber of Commerce can't carry out its broad program of work to protect and advance business without personal service and financial support.
Because through the Chamber of Commerce I can best fulfill my obligations to this community in which I live and earn my living. I realize that every person has an obligation that cannot be paid in taxes - one of personal service.
Because an active membership in my Chamber of Commerce carries with it a sense of accomplishment and inner satisfaction from the knowledge that I am doing my share of an important job.
Because although everyone in the community benefits from the work of the Chamber of Commerce, I can accept those benefits with a sense of pride ONLY if I have had a part in bringing them about.
The goal of your Chamber of Commerce is to promote the commercial, industrial, civic, cultural and general interest of your city and region. To accomplish this, action committees explore every avenue and possibility. These committees usually include those working in the areas of industrial development, agriculture, aviation, conventions, membership, citizenship, publicity, highways, urban and/or rural development, civic affairs, retail promotions, and water resources. Every individual, firm and profession derives direct benefits in a growing, stable economy. Such an economy is the result of your Chamber's efforts.
