Chamber membership benefits all employees

Our Chamber is very fortunate. With more than 2,200 members, we are supported by a great market share of our business community. Businesses of all sizes comprise the membership - about 62 percent of those member businesses employ 10 or fewer employees, and about 6 percent employ more than 100 employees. We're proud that Chamber member businesses represent more than 85,000 employees throughout Sioux Falls and neighboring communities. And all of these employees are Chamber members too. This is why involvement in the Chamber is not limited to only the president or owner of the business. All employees of a member business are welcome and encouraged to participate in Chamber events and committees. How can your employees participate in Chamber activities?

Encourage members of your sales team to meet potential new customers at a Membership Mixer, ChamberHood, or other networking event. Team members in your operations area can also benefit from these events by meeting new suppliers or perhaps meeting a "friend of a friend" who might be just the right candidate for that hard-to-fill vacancy at your business.
