Your Membership Makes a Difference!

A new member wrote us about his experience joining The Chamber,

Joining The Chamber in 2012 was one of the best moves our company made all year.
 
Since joining we have taken advantage of many of the perks including- Esso Fleet Services, credit card processing, email marketing, and web design discount with IslandNet. We also were able to connect with countless Chamber members who have helped our business. I may also have found a very suitable mentor who has over 30 years experience specific to my industry.
 
All in all the benefits far outweigh the membership dues and I look forward to participating in the Chamber more in years to come.
