Chamber Membership Means Business

Advocates of chambers of commerce have long believed that when a company is active in its local chamber, it is doing the right thing not only for the community but for its own success as well. A study commissioned by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives determined what the real value is to companies active in their local chambers.

Most consumers (59%) think that being active in the local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy overall, and 12% of consumers are more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition. Why? Because Consumers equate a business' chamber involvement with trustworthiness, caring about the community, and being a leader in its industry (Shapiro, 2012).

For example, when consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 44% more likely to think favorably of it and 63% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future. When consumers know that an insurance company is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 43% more likely to consider buying insurance from it. When consumers know that a restaurant franchise is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 40% more likely to eat at the franchise in the next few months.
