We’re on the tail end of January and starting to see some of our new initiatives take shape. One that I wanted to share with you is our new window clings for Chamber members to display at their business. I’m sure you’ve seen old ones around town, they look shabby and sun drenched (some even say Alliance for Amesbury, our predecessor). It’s time to freshen those up a bit and make it even easier to choose a Chamber member when you need products or services. Members will receive a new cling when they renew their membership. We have also recently updated our website and changed the categories in our Business Directory to make searching for a business more intuitive.

Why choose a Chamber member? Well, for a lot of reasons. If a business has maintained membership in the Chamber of Commerce they have financially invested in the future of our community. As a group they make it possible for us to address concerns with business regulations and zoning, offer education and leadership programs, as well as impact the quality of life in Amesbury and economic growth. Chamber Members often further invest in community events with sponsorships and gifts. These businesses help fund our scholarships for AHS students and frequently are found to be charitable to other local organizations. Chamber member businesses are reputable and care about their company, employees, and customers. Studies show that consumers favor Chamber businesses. For that benefit to emerge consumers must be aware of ones membership status. Therefore, we bring you new window clings and an easy to navigate business directory.

Next time you (or someone you know) need services or products, Choose a Chamber Member! Tell them we sent you!
