MEMBER BENEFITS – There are many benefits available to members of the Jacksonville Area Chamber of Commerce. Here are a few:

Chamber events give you an opportunity to make valuable business contacts. Working through committees, attending social functions, and attendance at Chamber sponsored workshops and seminars is one way of meeting new people and sharing ideas, concerns, and of course letting the community know who you are and what services & products you offer.

New members are published in the Chamber Review newsletter each month and all members who renew their commitment to the community through their Chamber membership are listed monthly, too.

Members may call the Chamber for assistance with Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies and Business After Hours Receptions.

The Chamber office handles hundreds of calls each year inquiring about businesses, services, and products available in Jacksonville. The Chamber policy is to refer all requests to Chamber members.

The Chamber of Commerce purchases all supplies, services, and products from Chamber members.

The Chamber provides a variety of promotional opportunities for its members. The Chamber Review  newsletter is published 12 times each year and reaches over 1,000 business people. Network News is an email newsletter sent to over 700 email addresses each week. It is intended for members to promote worthwhile causes with which they are involved. Event sponsorship is another opportunity for promotion, reaching not only members, but in some cases, non-members as well.

For more information, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you and visit with you about the Jacksonville Area Chamber of Commerce.
