The mission of the Emporia-Greensville Chamber of Commerce is to develop, encourage and promote business and to enhance the community's quality of life.
Chamber members enjoy a return on their membership investment
If you never attended a single function or participated in a program of the Emporia-Greensville Chamber of Commerce, you would benefit still from your membership investment. Each member benefits from all the Chamber does to strengthen the business community and improve quality of life. Members who are involved make valuable contacts and enjoy heightened visibility for their business while helping set the Chamber’s Business Plan.
Monthly membership luncheons, after hours functions and special events
Many networking opportunities each year allow Chamber members to make valuable business contacts. The monthly luncheons allow time for members to get to know each other as well as to hear informative speakers. The no-charge business after hours allow the hosts and guests to promote their business and themselves in a relaxed atmosphere.
All members enjoy increased visibility when they join the Chamber. When new members join, they are introduced to the membership at the monthly luncheon. All members are listed on the Chamber’s website. Members are given the opportunity to market their business additionally through additional sponsorships and through e-mail blasts to the membership.
Investment in the community
Your chamber membership makes a difference in the community. The Chamber is your community’s welcome center. We extend the “red carpet” to visitors who come wanting to know more about the community. We receive letters and calls for relocation packages. The Chamber is often the inquirer’s initial contact to the community. Tourists and the community know the Chamber is where information, maps, and brochures can be obtained. A member’s investment allows the Chamber to continue to provide the tools and resources necessary to benefit the community. Communities thrive with the active participation of people, organizations and businesses within them.
