How we Help
INCREASED PROFITABILITY IN BUSINESS
The member businesses of the Charlotte Area Chamber of Commerce are the heart of our organization. One focus moving forward is to continually find ways to increase profitability for our membership.
Successful businesses enable successful individuals to create successful communities. The Charlotte Area Chamber’s role in this process is continually delivering and optimizing the VALUE of membership at all levels. From sole proprietors to non-profit organizations to corporate Sponsors, we believe that increased Chamber value will translate into increased profitability and success.
EXPANDED NETWORK OF COLLEAGUES
At the core of membership value is the ability to expand networks of colleagues and opportunities to exchange business and referrals. This is usually done through our monthly luncheons & after-hours mixers, but the Charlotte Area Chamber also has opportunities to do this through educational seminars, specialized groups, etc.
For the future, the Chamber is committed to tailoring our networking events so that both attendance and satisfaction are optimized. The events committee has been created to review both larger and smaller events for quality and opportunities.
IMPROVED SENSE OF COMMUNITY
The Chamber is looking to find ways to give back to the community. Moving into the future, we will find more ways to give members the opportunity to engage.
From Non-Profit Events, to volunteering, to fundraising events, we believe that fostering an improved sense of community will add even more value to membership. We also believe that increasing the partnership between community and small business increases Charlotte’s economic vitality, making the city more appealing for new businesses and their families.
