Small Business

While the Chamber represents businesses of all sizes, businesses with less than fifty full time employee equivalents comprise more than 75% of our membership.  Whether you are a solo entrepreneur, an emerging business or an established company, the Chamber offers programming, benefits and resources designed to help your business grow.

To receive invites to upcoming Small Business programs, please email the membership team.

Member benefits

Although helpful for all, many of our member benefits were created with small businesses in mind.   For example, the Office Depot discount program gives smaller businesses the buying power of a large business by combining our purchasing power for great rates on pens, pencils, paper and more. You can also save money and support your fellow Chamber members with the Chamber’s Member-to-Member Discount Program.

Below is a list of Chamber member benefits that many of our smaller members find helpful:
