Why should you join Chamber of Commerce?

Here are just a few reasons why you should join and specifics on what our chamber does for its members.

Why Join?


Membership in a chamber of commerce makes your business more desirable to customers. When a small business is a chamber of commerce member, consumers are 80% more likely to purchase goods or services from the business in the future (The Schapiro Group, 2012).

A chamber membership can increase your profits because customers view your business more favorably.


A chamber of commerce may promote your business, especially when you first become a member. Chambers have many marketing venues, including their website, social media, community events, and print advertising. The chamber of commerce likely has a larger following than your business, so any exposure the chamber gives to your business can be beneficial.


A chamber of commerce supports member businesses. It acts as a voice for the common interests of members. Members also have the opportunity to get involved in the chamber. You could have the chance to influence your local government on issues that impact small businesses.


Chamber membership gives you access to network with other member businesses. Via networking, you get to know business leaders in your community, develop partnerships, and support other businesses. If your business is ever in need, you’ll have a community of business owners to turn to for help.

Professional development

The chamber of commerce may host professional development events. These events often include training or meeting opportunities. These opportunities can help you and your staff learn or improve upon skills that are essential to running your business. You can use the professional development events to improve your company without breaking your budget.

Get involved

Chamber involvement offers opportunities to help you become better connected to your community. Through the chamber, your awareness and connection to the community and business issues will grow. You be part of solving problems, and members can help you solve your problems.

Take deductions

You might be able to deduct membership fees as allowable business expenses.

Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce is a volunteer organization representing and promoting the interests of our member businesses on a local level.  The Chamber works to develop and deepen local relationship networks to promote business activity and business-to-business exchanges.

The Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors invites you to become a member of an exciting organization designed with you in mind. The Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce has many benefits and opportunities to help you and your business grow and thrive.

Member benefits include:

  • Free Grand Opening/Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies
  • Free Posts and Exposure in Member News and Events via the Website calendar, Facebook and E-Newsletter when applicable
  • Free Online Training through the Burt Poole Scholarship Fund
  • Free referrals from the Chamber
  • Free listing on our website
