New Fox Valley Chamber of Commerce Reaches 100 Members in Record Time
(PRWEB) April 30, 2012
The Fox Valley Chamber announced in April that it has reached 100 members in record time. Launched in January of this year, the Fox Valley Chamber of Commerce surpassed the 100 member mark in early April. The new chamber attributes this rapid growth to its heavy focus on business development and networking, bringing businesses from across the Fox River Valley Region together. The Fox Valley Chamber offers relevant, effective networking opportunities, training and community awareness.
This new chamber is built by business for business and offers members relevant, effective networking and training opportunities. It’s all about networking and building new synergies. Fox Valley Chamber Business After Hours events average between 150 and 200 attendees from a wide range of industries. The next Business After Hours will be a Pig Roast held on Wednesday, May 23 at the Chamber office. Check the The Fox Valley Chamber of Commerce website for details or to register for the event.
“Our goal is to create a large regional chamber with a heavy emphasis on networking and business development; one that crosses community boundaries and brings together business from throughout the Fox Valley region,” says David Berens, President and Co-founder of the Fox Valley Chamber. The Fox Valley Chamber is projecting a membership of 1200-1500 businesses and offers innovative programs like Chamber Bucks that encourage business between members.
The new Fox Valley Chamber’s target geography is along the Fox River from I-90 in the north to I-80 in the south and includes the communities of Elgin, South Elgin, St. Charles, Geneva, Elburn, Batavia, North Aurora, Aurora, Sugar Grove, Montgomery, Oswego and Yorkville, but welcomes businesses from all over the greater Chicago metropolitan area. The response has been incredible and there are already members from all over the Chicago Metropolitan area. Businesses can greatly expand their networking opportunities by leveraging the breadth of the Fox Valley Chamber. It’s a great option for businesses that want to market regionally, as opposed to having to join 8-10 smaller chambers. The Fox Valley Chamber even offers a monthly payment option to make it affordable for small businesses.
