How much does is cost to be a member of a chamber?
Membership dues in chambers of commerce are usually predicated upon the size of your company. You will see chambers calculate a company size with several different methods; everything from annual revenue to number of employees. Here at the Show Low Chamber we assess dues based upon type of company and number of employees. The fee structure will range anywhere from $100 – $1000 depending on these factors.
Is it really worth it to be a member of a chamber?
The short answer is YES!—if you are going to be involved. Many people join their local chamber and then expect their phone number will ring off the hook. The chamber will send you referrals, but there’s more to it than just that. Membership in a chamber of commerce is an opportunity; and a good chamber offers you many to get involved and promote your company. This is a key advantage of membership. So, join. Get involved. Take advantage of the many opportunities your local chamber provides.
Are chamber dues annual?
Yes. The amount is an annual due, however if you are interested in semi-annual or quarterly we can accommodate special billing requests.
