Why Join the Chamber?

Membership with the Sweet Home Oregon Chamber of Commerce accomplishes several things:

  • Gets your name/business out there to members and the community.
  • Creates networking opportunities for you to attend and take advantage of.
  • Strengthens your relationship with the community through volunteer opportunities.
  • And it's affordable!

According to a research study by The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based strategic consulting firm, consumers are 44% more likely to think favorably of businesses that are members of their local Chamber and 63% more likely to purchase goods or services from them in the future.

Further, if a company shows that it is highly involved in its local Chamber, consumers are 12% more likely to think its products are superior to those of its competition.

When consumers know that a national restaurant franchise is a member of the Chamber, they are 40% more likely to eat at the franchise in the next few months.

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.
