The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce supports and promotes the interests of local businesses by hosting events, marketing their members and providing resources. Involvement is the key to having a great experience as a chamber member. Here are some ways you can make the most of your membership.
Access to chamber events are at the forefront of the exclusive benefits members enjoy. Events join chamber members together to network and share knowledge. The Edinburg Chamber hosts several events every month, ranging from ribbon cuttings to webinars. Take advantage of events to network with like-minded business professionals and get your name out to the Edinburg community.
The Edinburg Chamber has an ambassador program that is dedicated to fostering connections between chamber members. Ambassadors are volunteers who hope to gain recognition and exposure for their business by attending events and assisting in various committees. In essence, ambassadors act as liaisons during events, such as ribbon cuttings, mixers and ground breakings.
The connections made as an ambassador of the Edinburg Chamber will help facilitate member-to-member networking and encourage member involvement in the chamber.
The Edinburg Chamber of Commerce works to promote members through its online directory, newsletter and social media accounts. The chamber raises awareness of its members to the community at large. Members can call the chamber directly to update their information and services so the chamber can have the most up to date information.
Additionally, members can purchase advertising space on the chamber’s website and directory for additional marketing. The website and directory are frequented by people looking for reputable businesses in Edinburg. Members that buy ad space on the website or directory can take advantage of their membership status to further build brand awareness, drive traffic to their own website or highlight products and services.
Moreover, businesses looking to support the chamber and get special recognition can become event sponsors. Event sponsorships are a unique opportunity to promote your business to the chamber’s large network during community or business events.
