One of the first things we did when starting our business in 1998 was to join the Renfrew & Area Chamber of Commerce. Being a member has enhanced the profile of the business, provided me with many opportunities to network with other business leaders and to grow the business. Joining the Chamber has been a great business decision.

It’s important to be a member of the Chamber in every town where you do business. Showing support for the community is integral to a good business model. Being a member of the Chamber is a wonderful way to meet other business leaders in the community. Knowing other business people allows you to seek out synergies which allow you to work together to the benefit of everyone.

When opening my business a number of years ago, I was looking for information and resources to help with my decision process. The Chamber of Commerce was able to provide me with both a network of reliable professionals as well as money-saving opportunities, on essential services, only available through the Chamber. Being part of a group that shares the same passion and provide continual support makes a lot of sense for a lot of reasons.
