People like to do business with people they know. We produce more than 40 events and programs each year that help you get to know the Streeterville business community and, more importantly, help them to know you. The Chamber is also made up of numerous committees, and serving on one of them provides great networking opportunities along with professional leadership development.
We take care of politics, so that you can take care of your business. We keep you informed and ensure that your voice will be heard on important regulatory, legislative, and educational issues that directly affect your business.
Through the Alliance’s many marketing and promotional opportunities, you’ll reach thousands of local business owners and executives. Creative and dynamic advertising and sponsorship opportunities exist through events, programs, websites, social media, and various publications. As a new member, you will be listed in our monthly new member e-newsletter and gain access to members-only speaking opportunities at our monthly Networking Breakfast. The chamber can also help to promote your ribbon-cutting ceremony and assist with connecting to City officials.
Tap into your target market more effectively and efficiently through the Alliance. Through our membership database, events, phone calls, or direct introductions, we facilitate hundreds of referrals each year for our members.
Gain access to a comprehensive edge over non-members with exclusive training opportunities on an array of topics, including marketing, social media, human resources, health and wellness, and much more.
Increase your purchasing power through members-only discounts and perks
Demonstrate your commitment to the community, and raise your reputation through membership. Joining the Alliance sends a message that your business operates using sound business practices and is a leader in the Streeterville business community. According to a study conducted by the Shapiro Group in Atlanta, Georgia: if a consumer knows that a business is a member of its local chamber, the business benefits from a 51% increase in consumer awareness, a 57% increase in its local reputation, and a 63% increase in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future.
Many of our members believe that it is important to support the Alliance through membership and sponsorship, as the Alliance serves as their voice in the community. Joining the Alliance is an easy way to show support for your business community and ensure its strength and longevity.
