DIRECT BENEFITS OF OUR “START UP” MEMBERSHIP

Membership: Positive Impact For Business

According to a commissioned study by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives(ACCE) the real value of chamber membership to businesses as it applies to what customer perceive about that business includes:

 

 When you display your membership plaque,people are 19% more likely to think favorably of your business over non-members.

 

 If you are seen as highly involved through participation on committees,sponsorship, board service,etc. 12% are more likely to think your products/services stack up better against your competition.

 

 These perceptions are based on the inference that businesses,which are highly visible and active in their local chamber,are more trustworthy,more involved in the community,care about customers,are successful,and are community leaders.
