Dear Prospective 2017 Chamber Member:
Market research has shown that, if given a choice, consumers will shop with a chamber member rather than a non-member, because chamber membership says to the consumer that the member business is trustworthy, is involved in the community, cares about its customers, is successful, and is a leader in the business community. The Clearwater Chamber of Commerce was organized for the purpose of Improving quality of life through business growth and prosperity. Clearwater is a growing and thriving community because the businesses and individuals work together to make Clearwater a better place to live, work and play. It encourages the expansion of existing industries and businesses, while giving assistance to individuals and entities looking to create new businesses in the Clearwater area. At the Chamber of Commerce we work very hard to help our members achieve all their business goals each year, and we measure our success by our member’s success.
We’ve recently created new programs and events that not only support our members as business owners, but also benefit the Clearwater community as a whole. Memberships make these programs and events possible, and without them we cannot accomplish our shared mission of a thriving, profitable business community. We’d like to share with you some things the Chamber of Commerce is currently doing in the community and for its businesses:
- Maintains the Clearwater Chambers website, www.clearwaterkschamber.com, which has a listing of all our members’ businesses, special events, and information for visitors.
- Hosts many networking/special events such as the monthly Chamber’s Coffee, community events, and Business Development workshops.
- Supports local businesses by promoting the “Shop Local” program that encourages people to shop Clearwater in support of the local economy.
- Sponsors major annual events: Art Crawl, RealityU high school program, Ducky Dash, Downtown Halloween and so much more.
These are just a few of the ways we promote and support the growth and success of Clearwater and its businesses.
We want you to join us in this effort, and since we are fully funded by memberships, we really need your help to continue our work. We hope that you will consider joining us and becoming an active member of our organization. Clearwater will thrive and prosper if we all work together toward that common goal. Thank you for your consideration.
The Clearwater Chamber of Commerce
