Why join the Pewaukee Chamber of Commerce?

 

Here’s what some of our members have to say…

 

The Pewaukee Chamber has been a great help in growing my business.   The networking events are a wonderful time to build relationships and partnerships with fellow business members, and Kathy (Chamber Director) is always “pushing” you to get involved and meet new people…Thanks Kathy!  I would highly recommend joining this Chamber.

One way that I have found to be very successful is membership in the Chambers of Commerce. 48% of my new business during 2010 came from referrals from either the Wauwatosa or Pewaukee Chambers of Commerce. No one can argue with numbers like that!  Obviously, I love the people who are involved in the Pewaukee Chamber or I wouldn’t have become an Ambassador for them. But some of the value is far less obvious. For instance, as a new member, I had my picture in the Waukesha Freeman for free. I was given table space to show my “stuff” at a luncheon and an Ambassador directed members to me so we could get acquainted. Also, I drove my car in the 4th of July parade for the entire community to see my “rolling billboard”. How do you put a value on benefits like this?

The Chamber is and has been a very good place to meet other business owners in the area.  We can talk about how to better improve our business.

Being on the Pewaukee Chamber website has added value to MMP – Waukesha, allowing us to gain new clients.  The Chamber referred us to the Pewaukee School District and they awarded us some jobs.  Thank you Chamber.

I updated my web portal with additional photos, logo, map and all the keywords.  Thanks for having that feature for the members! Thanks Kathy for the quick reply, and your help! As overwhelmed as I am with this new business I am sure glad I am in Pewaukee and have the Chambers resources.

The Pewaukee Chamber does a good job of onboarding new members.  Our visit with Ambassador Bill Czaja of State Farm was extremely helpful.  Bill introduced us to all of the benefits that the Chamber had to offer and made us feel very welcome.  The lunches that the chamber sponsors give new members a fantastic opportunity to meet other members and get to know them in a comfortable and professional setting.

I just want to thank you and say congratulations to everyone who was involved in the great new marketing feature for the chamber website! This is a wonderful feature that will definitely help our own SEO on the Momentum website.  We belong to other chambers and it just doesn’t give us the exposure we need to help promote our small business. The Pewaukee Chamber is putting forth so much more effort! I tell other businesses in the area to join the Pewaukee Chamber because your team really works hard to help increase our exposure on the website, chamber activities etc.!  Thanks Again!

River Hills West Health & Rehabilitation Center had been a Pewaukee Chamber member for many years, however, has not always taken advantage of the opportunities available.  About a year ago as an employee I was approached to attend the monthly meetings. Joining committees, becoming more active in the Chamber and taking advantage of numerous networking opportunities has given River Hills West the chance to get our name out there. The Chamber has allowed us to post all of our events at our facility on the website and in the newsletters giving us an opportunity for Pewaukee to become reacquainted with us again.  The people and businesses I have met have been wonderful and amazingly almost every business intertwines in one way or another with each other at some point which really was a surprise to me.

My small business, Atalanta Consulting, LLC, joined the Pewaukee Chamber of Commerce in June, 2010. My motivation for spending the small membership dues  was to find a vehicle to connect with local businesses and use the networking and marketing opportunities made available by the Chamber. Being a micro-business, the resources of the Chamber provide a huge marketing value for my limited budget that is quite valuable in these tough economic times. It works! I have garnered a number of fantastic leads and contacts that will really help my business into the future. I heartily recommend joining the Pewaukee Chamber of Commerce as a way to improve the profitability of your business.

The Pewaukee Chamber of Commerce has been an incredible asset to building my  business in Pewaukee.  I continue to get new clients and repeat customers because of the networking and support offered by Kathy, the chamber and the members of the chamber.  The initial response and support from becoming a new member was unexpectedly great!  There is a positive entrepreneurial spirit running through this Chamber and it is very contagious!  The enthusiasm of the ambassadors and other members is a welcomed greeting as a new member.  Not being from the area, I did not realize all of the businesses that are in Pewaukee.  In addition, the larger businesses that are known world-wide!  If you are a business in the Pewaukee area, I would recommend becoming a member of the Pewaukee Chamber of Commerce.  I can’t say enough good things about the Chamber and the resources and networking opportunities are endless!

I’m so glad I joined the Pewaukee Chamber of Commerce. I can directly attribute three new clients in the past year alone from the Chamber networking events I attended. Being part of the team of Ambassadors has also brought me many new contacts, and given my business visibility a gigantic boost. I highly recommend any business, and especially small at home businesses to get involved with the Pewaukee Chamber.

I became very involved with the Pewaukee Chamber of Commerce when I was starting up my chiropractic practice and I am sure that the opportunities the Pewaukee Chamber gave me helped grow my business significantly.  Over the last few months I have had at least 5 direct clients from networking in the Chamber and a few others who were referred by other members.  As an Ambassador for the Pewaukee Chamber, I have been given great exposure in the community newspapers and I have had a few new clients choose me as a result.  The growth that this Chamber has had in just a year’s time is very impressive and the effort put in by the staff and volunteers to provide the multiple networking opportunities each month has been phenomenal.  The Chamber has also been a great avenue for me to learn more about other businesses and learn new business strategies from them as well.  I encourage other business owners, especially small business owners like myself, to join this Chamber and get involved as much as possible by attending the networking events and joining the committees that have been formed.

Because of the conscientious efforts of Kathy and others in the Chamber, I strongly feel true concern for the success of my business.  The energy of the Pewaukee Chamber fits me well.
