Why should you be a member of the Lake Havasu Area Chamber of Commerce? There are a multitude of benefits in the form of products and services; however, let us offer 7 reasons why every business should be a member.
1. Visibility! Out of sight is out of mind. Chamber members have extra visibility through the Chamber’s website, in our directories, by being involved in our committees and events, by participating in connection/networking events, and because we provide referrals only to our members, 24/7.
2. Access! Being a member gives you access to the movers and shakers in the business community and in the local, state and regional political arena. Why spend the day cold calling when you can participate with an organization that constantly strives to bring customers to you?
3. Training and Education! Each year the Chamber provides 12-18 inexpensive or free training opportunities for members on topics ranging from social networking to document storage. The Chamber also created and continues to offer Havasu Leadership Development, the only community leadership training program in western Arizona.
4. Connections and Networking! Despite the many options of social networking available, the Chamber still believes that one-on-one, face-to-face meetings help our members build long-term business connections. AM Exchanges, After Hours Mixers, Chamber Night and several other opportunities to build your business network abound.
5. Low-Cost Advertising Opportunties! The Chamber offers a wide range of affordable advertising and marketing options on this website, in our annual printed Business and Membership Directory, in our monthly electronic newsletter and through e-announcements, etc. Members can also purchase mailing lists and labels.
6. Advocacy! The Chamber researches, lobbies and routinely discusses with local, state and federal government officials, the many issues that are good, bad and ugly for our members. Nearly all legislation affects how we do business.
7. Discounts! The Chamber offers a Member-2-Member Discount Program where you can receive discounts from restaurants, retail stores, professional services and more.
