Networking Tip #16 – Join a Chamber of Commerce

Network in the right places!

Professional associations exist whose sole purpose is to support the members of a particular profession with opportunities for continuing education, networking, recognition, research, credentialing, publications, and other services.

Your local chamber of commerce is another venue to consider. It provides opportunities to give back to the community and capitalise on significant member benefits.

Your Action Step – We started off this week’s strategy by advising you (with apologies to Andrew Carnegie) to diversify your eggs into more than one type of networking basket.

Your task this week is to investigate your local chamber of commerce.

Find out where the office is and request membership information.

Ask for the names of members you can contact.

Attend an event or two to see whether the membership is a good fit for you; for a small fee, you can probably visit a chamber mixer.

Take your time, do your homework, and locate a chamber that will adequately meet your needs – and the needs of your business.

Pick an active chamber that knows how to hold networking events and has strong membership. Membership is not free, but it’s far less expensive than traditional advertising
