Concord has been rated one of the safest and best places to live, not only in New Hampshire, but in the country.
2017 is officially here. What are your business and personal goals this year? The Greater Concord Chamber is your chamber. We work for you. Let us know how we can help. Feedback regarding programming, benefits, and events is welcome and encouraged.
Not fully sure of all the things your membership entails? Here are some of the ways we can help you promote your business, engage in the community, and take advantage of all the Chamber offers:
Market jobs at your organization through the Chamber's website. Anyone with a web browser can view your job listing.
Members are welcome to promote and post events using our online community calendar.
A member recently wrote to tell us, "One of my colleagues had to pick up a prescription that was not covered by our insurance. It was $200, so she asked if her Chamber prescription card would help. It brought her prescription down to $97!"
Advocacy on local and legislative issues
The Chamber is actively involved in engagement with elected representatives at the State House and committed to bringing members objective, informative events like our popular Legislative Outlook Luncheon, State of the City Breakfast Forum and Lunch with the Governor.
We host monthly networking events early in the morning and in the evening, as well as international group trips open to both members and the public. Once a year, we provide members with the opportunity to engage with the state's most progressive business leaders at Tri-City Expo, New Hampshire's premier B2B networking event held each fall by the Concord, Manchester and Nashua Chambers of Commerce.
People are constantly visiting our website and calling the Chamber looking for information and referrals. They also walk into our Visitor Center. Members are encouraged to leave rack cards and brochures.
Members are welcome to post Member News items on our website at all times.
Ads on our website helped eighteen members net 5-digit views, with the top spot currently at 48,840 views.
We also offer print ads exclusively to members in The Guidebook to Greater Concord publication co-produced with The Concord Monitor. It is sent to individuals and businesses all over the country interested in relocating to Concord. We produce 10,000 copies and your ad comes up in web searches through both the Chamber's and Monitor's websites. Look for our January mailing with details.
April's Business Showcase features more than 100 Chamber members and is open to the public so they can get to know our members' products and services better. In a survey of last year's exhibitors, 100% said they would participate again.
The Chamber enjoys the support of many committees that are made up of fellow chamber members who volunteer their time and efforts to make this organization stronger.
The above examples are just some of the ways the Chamber is here to help you reach your goals. We're excited to kick-off another year full of promise and endless possibilities, and as our new board chair Nannu Nobis recently said, “There’s a palpable sense of excitement in the Capital Region and it’s the Chamber’s goal to help you capitalize on this unique moment for the City of Concord. There’s never been a better time to come together and grow…congratulations! You’re well-positioned to be part of it all.”
Tim Sink is the President of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce.
