Think becoming a member of the Chamber of Commerce only gets your business a directory listing on the organization’s website? Think again.
Chambers advocate on behalf of the business community, and it’s not a role they take lightly.
People do business with those they know, like and trust. To that end, the Oswego Area Chamber of Commerce works hard to foster strong business to business relationships, as well as community relationships, through a variety of monthly networking events.
Does your business need a visibility boost? The Oswego Chamber is a social media ambassador for its members. The organization reposts member events, job listings, and promotions to the Chamber’s Facebook page, as well as uses its website, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn to help increase member awareness.
Memberships also entail getting listed on the Oswego Area Chamber’s mobile app which is free for all to download, as well as in the online member directory and community guide. And because the Chamber is a member-oriented organization, only members are recommended and referred in response to inquiries.
Did you know becoming a member lets you take advantage of benefits that can help your bottom-line? Just some of those perks include member-to-member discounts and insurance deductions.
Once joining the Chamber, members are encouraged to get involved in one of the many committees, groups, and events in order to meet other members and make business connections.
Throughout the year, the Oswego Chamber of Commerce offers members access to professional development through workshops and meeting speakers, networking events, and free ribbon cutting celebrations.
Annual events hosted by the Chamber include the Annual Dinner, which highlights the previous year's accomplishments and looks ahead to the next year’s plan of action, and the Hometown Expo, which gives community members an opportunity to learn about the area’s businesses and nonprofits.
