BENEFITS & SERVICES
See the many ways becoming a chamber member will benefit you and your business.
The Rockdale Chamber of Commerce provides its members several opportunities for networking.
Our mixers are a valuable resource for making business contacts and advertising your store.
Volunteer as a chamber ambassador to receive special invitations to attend all the ribbon-cutting ceremonies and other special events in which the chamber is involved. Ambassadors have a monthly lunch meeting to discuss upcoming business and plan events such as:
- Chamber banquets
- Membership drives
- Upcoming ribbon cuttings
By attending member meetings, you can promote your business to other chamber members and learn valuable information to help support a healthy economy for everyone.
Use of Hogan Hall is available to all members for any small meeting your business may have.
KEEPING YOU INFORMED
The chamber keeps its members informed of news and events through our monthly newsletter, which provides the community with regular business updates and information on new and existing members. Members can provide their fliers in this newsletter to promote their businesses.
The Rockdale Chamber of Commerce promotes its members in the following ways.
We receive thousands of inquiries each year requesting information about Rockdale and our area businesses, professionals, services and other establishments. We answer each one promptly, directing business only to our chamber members.
BROCHURES & INFORMATION
We publish numerous brochures and pamphlets promoting area businesses, cultural activities, shopping, restaurants, recreational opportunities and points of interest.
If you are a member and have opened a new business or relocate to a new site, we will host a ribbon cutting absolutely free. Board members, Chamber members and Chamber Ambassadors are invited to participate, and the local media will be on hand for pictures.
The chamber provides members visibility through yearly highlights in our newspaper column and on the local radio station's chamber report.
The chamber offers the following advertising benefits to its members:
- If your business sends over 200 pieces of identical advertisements, you may use the chamber bulk mail permit. This saves you approximately five cents per piece of mail, plus the permit fee of $100 per year.
- The chamber membership roster is available on disk, labels or lists. Copies are available for $10 to all chamber members, if you provide the labels or disks.
- The official detailed map of Rockdale features only chamber members and is the only map we distribute.
