Reasons To Join The Chamber!

Credibility

The Chelsea Chamber of Commerce is the most trusted source of information on local businesses and services. The term “Chamber of Commerce” dates back 400+ years and “the Chamber” is one of the oldest and most recognized brands in the world. Chamber membership is considered to be a sign of a reputable, solid business. Studies show that consumers are 49% more likely to think favorably upon a Chamber member business and 80% more likely to make a purchase. We always refer our members.

Networking

People do business with people they know! Chamber events provide members with networking opportunities that could lead to your next big sale, a strategic partnership with another member, or information that can help your business or organization. Grow your business or non-profit by taking advantage of the many networking opportunities the Chamber provides for cultivating and maintaining valuable relationships.

Visibility

We work hard to help your business or organization get seen by the people who matter to you. From referrals to advertising and sponsorship opportunities to newsletters, our mission is to promote you.

Affordable Marketing

These opportunities will resume when COVID protocol enables us to have large in-person gatherings.
