Benefits of Joining the Chamber
Investing in a chamber of commerce membership is a direct investment into your business and the local community. It is one of the most strategic moves a business can make and a great way to build credibility. According to a study by the Schapiro Group and Market Street Services, when consumers know a small business is a member of the local chamber of commerce, they are 44 percent more likely to think favorably of it and 63 percent more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.
A chamber membership also provides business development and networking opportunities through our quarterly chamber meetings and tourism meetings. Chamber meetings are held on the first Thursday of April, July and October. Meetings start at noon and alternate between Freddie’s Steakhouse and Winn’s Café & Grill. Tourism meetings are usually held monthly by the Mannford Chamber Tourism Group, which plans and supports most of the Chamber’s community activities. These meetings are a great place to learn and network with other local business owners.
Chamber memberships also provide visibility and recognition through website listing, ribbon cuttings and awards. As a member of the Mannford Chamber, your business would be listed in a searchable directory on our website and include contact information, a link to your website and your logo. Your business can also be featured in a business spotlight post on our website’s news page and Facebook page. The Chamber is available for ribbon cutting ceremonies to celebrate grand openings and other milestones. In addition, the Chamber gives out a variety of awards each year at our Chamber Banquet. As a member, you are eligible to receive one of these prestigious awards!
We also have a job listing page on our website. As a chamber member, your business has exclusive access to our job listing page if you are looking to hire.
