“As a business professional in Elkhart, I rely on the Chamber of Commerce to help keep me connected. They are a great resource for promoting local business through their Lunch-In and After Hour events as well as the Business Recognition Council. They are the center-point of what’s happening in the business community with weekly publications that are very informative for any professional. If you want help promoting a community education event or a business milestone, the Chamber is an effective marketing tool for awareness.
The team that works at the Chamber has a genuine concern for their members and are always open to new ideas. I recommend joining the Chamber and strengthening their network of business professionals so we all benefit.”

“Being an Ambassador has helped our company gain a lot of recognition. We have been able to meet people. It has enabled us to get our company information out to these companies and then to work with them. Being an Ambassador has allowed me to help the Chamber and in turn it has helped our business. You can’t just be an Ambassador for a short time and expect a return. It takes time to build friendships and trust. The more a company invests in time at events those friendships and contacts will grow.”
