A Note from the Director
Hello Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce Members ~
Even businesses that are very actively involved with the Chamber might ask What exactly is the value of my membership?’ We aren’t afraid of that question – as a matter of fact we hope that you do ask because we know that we have a great answer! Membership with the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce brings many benefits and opportunities; Chamber membership creates a combined benefit for both your business and your community. Ensuring a return on your investment however, depends on taking advantage of the opportunities your membership provides and taking an active role in your Chamber’s activities. According to a research study by The Shapiro Group, Inc. and Market Street Services: “When consumers know that a small business is a member of their local chamber of commerce, they are 44 percent more likely to think favorably of that business and 63 percent more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.” If you still don’t think you have time to join and participate in your Grove City Area Chamber, here are some Chamber resources to help you grow your investment:
NETWORKING: Get to know other local businesses at Ribbon Cuttings, Grand Openings, Open Houses, After Hours events, Welcome Wednesdays (Orientation breakfast at the Chamber) and Member Luncheons with great topics and speakers.
SAVINGS: Enjoy a tangible ROI by participating in our Workers’ Compensation group rating (savings up to 53 %!), Health, Vision and Dental Insurance, Home and Auto Insurance, Electric and Gas group rates.
ADVERTISING: As a Chamber member, you can get advertising savings in local publications.
INFORMATION: Stay informed with the Chamber Member Monthly E-Newsletter, the Chamber Key and Business of the Week videos. Visit our website at gcchamber.org and utilize the Member Information Center, Community Calendar and more.
