We want to bring Maricopa County Residents directly to our Business Members. So we have created a Resident Membership program which right now is only $10 a year from Maricopa County Residents to join! Business Members offer Chamber members usually offer other chamber members discounts for using their business, products and services so we have made this fantastic way to save money open to our Maricopa County Residents. By offering Chamber Discounts your business is going to reap the benefits of new Card Caring Resident members coming directly to you first because you offer them some kind of discount, special or coupon. Example of this could be 15% off if you eat at our restaurant, 10% off Garage Door Service, $25 off Jet Ski Rentals... When a Resident has a card like this in their hand they are more apt to use it over a coupon or discount book they purchased, kept at home and never have it conviently in their wallet or purse as they are driving by or looking for your service! All other chambers want to price out residents from joining, we want to price them in because it means more business for you!
We have installed on our site comet chat. A feature that lets our members create their own chat rooms and web broadcasts. This feature lets you chat with members who are currently on the site. You can schedule virtual meetings. You can host a networking or leads group and everyone can enjoy being a part of this from the confort of their office or home.
We offer our Maricopa County and State politicians who are in office or who may be running for office a membership package that lets them engage via our community. We may not endorse our political members but we do endorse the politcal process and giving our canadates a platform so that our community can engage and learn more about the ideas they have to share and the directions they would like to bring our county and state is in everyones interest.
There are so many benifits to chamber members we hope you will join us and our vision for our county, state and future!
