Overview

The Chamber provides members with a wide range
of opportunities and services to facilitate business growth through networking, business exposure, referrals, cost-saving programs and education programs. The Chamber represents the interests of the business community and works with member businesses and local governmental, school and community leaders to provide a good environment in which to conduct business and build a strong local economy.

Networking
One of the strengths of the Chamber is the networking and other business development opportunities the organization provides members. Chamber events, business activities and committees help members make important business contacts and develop business relationships. Our membership base of approximately 700 members ensures that members will meet potential clients, customers and suppliers from businesses of all sizes and types.

Advocacy
The Chamber is a respected voice when it comes to protecting and promoting free enterprise and creating effective partnerships with government.

Through collaborations with governments, schools, libraries and other community groups, the Chamber is the leading voice for business in the area. Working with these partners and our members, we seek to ensure that the Worthington area remains a thriving place to work, live and conduct business.

Cost-Saving Programs
Insurance and discount programs give Chamber member businesses and their employees the best possible benefits at the most reasonable cost.

Business Exposure
One of the many ways the Chamber helps business succeed is in providing numerous opportunities for them to market to businesses and consumers. From publications to the Internet to event sponsorships, the Chamber’s advertising and sponsorship opportunities can be a meaningful part of your company’s marketing program.

Professional Development
Members can take part in several programs and
seminars during the year that allow them to grow and develop new skills. Free consulting services on a limited basis also are available through Chamber staff and members.

Referrals
The Chamber receives many inquiries asking where to buy certain products and services from local businesses. Requests are made by phone calls, e-mail messages, letters and office visits. In all cases, these requests are referred to members only, guiding business to your door.

In addition, our Web site is designed to attract consumers as well as members to our site and to link prospective customers to member Web sites to facilitate business growth.

Finally, the Chamber has developed a special feature on this Web site to facilitate members supporting one another in making purchases for products and services. The Business Connection section offers you an opportunity to locate the products and services that you need from member businesses.
