1. Expand Your Reach – People do business with people they know. That’s why our Chamber initiates more opportunities for connecting local professionals than is available through any other local organization. Business After Hours networking events weekly, Ribbon Cutting & Grand Opening ceremonies, Common Ground Breakfast series, Leads Groups, and annual events like Installation Celebration, Thrive Business Summit, Creekside Festival and Flagler Restaurant Week are all designed to raise exposure for members.
2. Speak a Little Louder – Through a proactive government affairs program and relationships, the Chamber represents the local business community with local, regional and state government. This involves giving members a voice and encouraging pro-business policies, practices and legislation.
3. Learn Something New – Sometimes it’s as important to work on your business, as it is to work in your business. Throughout the year, the Chamber offers training sessions, workshops and seminars to help businesses stay on track and become more successful.
4. Be a Star – Membership comes with its perks, including exclusive members-only benefits including placing your promotional materials in our official visitors center lobby, discounts to attend chamber functions, sponsorship opportunities and more. The Chamber gives out referrals of the membership on a daily basis as well as promotion and publicity support for Ribbon Cutting or Grand Opening events.
