What a Chamber of Commerce Could do for Your Business:

  • Identification – A membership plaque and window decal identifies you as a member in good standing with the chamber. We also publish a list of each of our members in our brochure, on our website, as a part of publications, and at any event the chamber is invited to be a part of.
  • Business Referrals – Referrals are made by the chamber when someone visits the office or inquires by phone, email, fax or mail about your specific business. A chamber member is given priority referrals over those businesses who are not yet members.
  • Advertising Opportunities – Chamber publications and website offer effective and affordable advertising that is targeted toward your current and potential needs. Also, we are hoping to partner with local newspaper and advertising agents to offer Chamber members advertising at discounted rates.
  • Chamber Update – A newsletter that keeps you informed about activities and upcoming events of your chamber.  
  • Annual Meeting – An annual meeting provides chamber members an opportunity to report on accomplishments and present awards to outstanding business leaders.
  • Tax Deduction – A chamber serves as an advocate organization for area businesses, so your membership investment is deductible as a necessary business expense. Furthermore, since the chamber is a non-profit organization as a 501(c)3, you donation is tax deductable. So, whether or not you join as a business or an individual, there are several opportunities for your membership to be redeemed.
  • Grand Openings, Open Houses, Ribbon Cuttings, Groundbreakings – A chamber can assist with grand openings, open houses, ribbon cuttings, and groundbreaking ceremonies.
  • Insurance Discounts – Insurance discounts are being offered to chamber members through Auto Owners Insurance from Sumter Insurance Agencies here in Livingston. As a chamber member, you can receive up to a 14% on your commercial property and liability, commercial automobile, commercial umbrella, garage liability and dealer blanket, workers compensation, personal automobile, condo owners, or homeowners insurance.
  • Buy Local Identification – As a chamber member who opts to be a part of the Buy Local Campaign, you could become one of our featured businesses in the monthly newsletters, online, and in the news media. You also have the opportunity to partner with UWA for Buy Local promotions, such as a coupon book.
