Joining the Chamber was a great decision for me both personally and professionally. In the busy world of emails, social media and everything else that we have going on, it's so important to connect with people personally to build relationships. I have made great connections that have allowed me to serve organizations through my employer and have seen a definite return on my investment. Withing the first year of membership, I secured tow new pieces of business that far outweighed the financial investment I made in chamber membership. I also have the honor of bringing service to my community through a variety of initiatives. If you are looking to grow your business and serve the growing communities of the Oak Creek/Franklin area, then you must join the South Suburban Chamber!
This is a very active Chamber of Commerce that is truly focused on the economic development of Oak Creek, Franklin, and surrounding communities. The members of the Chamber are businesses that really care about the community. When I moved here, I used the Chamber member list to find my dentist, eye doctor, accountant, etc. All of them were great businesses committed to improving the community.
The South Suburban Chamber has been the most beneficial networking group I've joined! My business is primarily focused on serving Franklin and Oak Creek, and being a part of the chamber has helped me connect with other businesses looking to grow with these communities as well.
We have been a member of the South Suburban Chamber for 7 years. During that time we have attended Chamber Networking Breakfasts, ABLE South Luncheons, and multiple events like golf outings, annual dinners, and other social events. We have met many other members throughout the years and have found this an extremely rewarding organization to be a member of.
We provide many of the promotional signs to the chamber for social events. This gives us an opportunity to show what we can do as a company and also saves the chamber money. We also donate silent auction and raffle items showcasing some of the products we provide for our other customers. The biggest contribution and the one that returns the most tu us is participation on the board and committees. I personally have met more people as a result of my participation in the chamber than in any other organization I am a member of. I have counted over 30 chamber members that have done business with our company over the years, and many of these companies are repeat customers. I cannot thank the Chamber enough for providing this valuable networking opportunity.
I have found that the Chamber Networking Breakfast is a great way to network with other business professionals in the Oak Creek and Franklin area. I find that these networking opportunities also help me to learn about other businesses and gain insight on what other business owners are doing to survive in these challenging economic times.
McAvoy Chiropractic has been a member and supporter of the South Suburban Chamber for many years. Our practice representative attends most of the events hosted or sponsored by the Chamber and has formed a strong network with fellow members as well as with members of other area Chambers through the ABLE South events. We continue to provide programs for employees that help keep them healthy and on the job as well as assist businesses with workplace wellness initiatives. The South Suburban Chamber is a very dynamic organization where members support and refer to each other, helping us all to grow our businesses and give back to our community. Our interactions with other chamber members have helped us educate the community on the benefits of Chiropractic Care and provided us with local resources for our other business needs.
