  • What support means to us

    We say that a priority for us is to support our members and the business environment. But what exactly does that mean and how exactly do we demonstrate that? Just a few examples of what we do to work for you include…

    • We work to bring in the brightest local and national speakers and thought-leaders so you can learn from the best
    • Our public policy staff and committee monitors key legislative issues and works with elected officials to influence policies that are beneficial for our membership
    • Our membership team is constantly evaluating our benefits and offers so you get the most from your investment
    • Ambassadors are assigned to members as needed within their first months of membership to assist with their first two years of membership, and can be a point of contact for questions and support.
    • We connect entrepreneurs and small business staff to resources that can make working in a small team just a bit easier
    • Our programs, such as Leadership FMWF, train developing leaders through targeted networking, talks and hands-on projects
    • We collaborate with other area organizations to leverage our expertise and work together on large community issues
    • Our senior staff regularly meets with key industry leaders to monitor trends and support their businesses (for example, we’ve been at the table in meetings with airline officials to keep our local air service in operation and wrote letters of support to Congress)
    • We offer opportunities to connect every level of business professional, from students to YPs to seasoned business leaders
    • We work to educate the community on issues they might not be aware of otherwise through partnerships with local media and our own channels of communication
    • Special events educate on matters like tax reform law, fraud prevention and even candidate forums during election seasons

    We take our work in advocacy and public policy seriously, and we believe it’s one of the best benefits of your membership.

    A collective voice matters through an association like a chamber matters because we can do more together. With your support, we can work for you, for the community. We know that a strong business climate is essential for economic growth and prosperity as a region.
