Did You Know The Chamber Offers Affinity Programs?
Did you know the Chamber offers special discounts and services to all members through our Affinity Programs?
These exclusive perks are not advertised or available to the public and are only offered to active members. This is just another resource the Chamber provides to help our members cut costs and save money whenever possible so they can focus on growing their businesses.
If you are not familiar with what an affinity program is or how it works, simply put, the word affinity means “a relationship” or “partnership.” The Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) defines it as a type of mutually beneficial business partnership in which a business will offer a special rate or type of service to an organization’s members. In return, both partners will see an increase in revenue. It is a win-win situation, that results in a third win for all of the organization’s members.
The business (active member) providing the affinity program receives promotion of their products, goods or services to all of the organization’s (Chamber’s) members.
The organization (Chamber) offering the affinity program to its members receives a royalty upon business transactions of the partnering business in exchange for promoting the goods or services.
The other members of the organization (Chamber) receive savings and discounts as an automatic benefit of their membership.
