I have been a member of the Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce for many years now. While I wasn’t all sure why I would join the chamber when I started it has proved to bring value to our business in ways I didn’t consider at that time. I don’t do local trade and work with clients nationally so I knew I wouldn’t create business by being a chamber member. But over the years I now find myself using local resources and professional services that I met through the chamber. I also attend a wide range of seminars and educational tools that have helped our business and some of my coworkers and employees have attended as well. Lastly (and real importantly) I have found that a sense of community has grounded our business, made our business feel at home and helped with our employee base and overall culture. I understand some of these things are hard to quantify but I am convinced that the return on our chamber membership has greatly exceeded the minimal investment we have made.
