Does your business have a website? In today’s business world, everyone needs to have a presence on the internet. Your chamber membership entitles you to:
- Your business information live online at www.dcc.org.
- A link to your website from our online membership directory
- Username and PIN# to access the Member Information Center (MIC) where you can post news, events and unlimited job openings online (requires approval from chamber staff)
Printed Business Directory
Just for being a current member of the chamber, your business is listed in our printed directory in alphabetical order as well as the business category of your choice. The annual directory is also available on our website.
The Chamber celebrates new businesses, grand openings and relocations for our members. A ribbon cutting gives your business added exposure. Your photos, video and business information are also posted on all our social media platforms, shared in our newsletter and included on our website in the upcoming events calendar.
Through Chamber's events, you can network with other member businesses. By networking, you get to know others in your community, develop partnerships and support other businesses. Chamber Commodores serve as mentors to new Chamber members. If your business is ever in need, you’ll have a community of business owners to turn to for help.
The Chamber hosts professional development events that include training opportunities to help employees learn or improve upon skills that are essential to running a business.
Our leadership programs create awareness and encourage meaningful participation within the business community as well as providing networking opportunities for professionals at all levels that will ultimately equip them with effective leadership resources.
Market to your fellow members
If you participate in direct mail campaigns or need to send a special message to your fellow chamber members, our mailing list is right at your fingertips. Mailing lists can be emailed to you in an excel spreadsheet at no cost to you. A free member benefit is our monthly e-blast called "Friday Fliers”. It features embedded PDFs that members provide highlighting their goods, services and contact information.
Small Business Support
Access to information on area demographics, permits, taxes and so much more are available as well as professional development opportunities.
Word of mouth is often the best and most inexpensive form of advertising. We field countless calls and inquiries daily asking for businesses just like yours. Rest assured, we recommend our members to those potential customers. Referrals occur via telephone, mail, email and walk-in visitations.
Keep up with the latest news in the business community
Stay informed on important business and economic issues, Chamber news and activities, upcoming events, resources available and helpful business tips with our weekly e-newsletter, Your Chamber Connection. The email is sent every Wednesday to over 2,500 individuals from Chamber member businesses.
During our Total Resource Campaign, businesses sponsor the opportunity to showcase their location, products and services to our members with networking events like Coffee & Cards, Breakfast & Biz, and more! Other opportunities to promote your business are available such as the Small Business Spotlight segment on our website.
“Meeting" Your Needs
Have you tried to schedule an off-site meeting for your business lately? Renting meeting spaces can be costly. Our “Contractor Service & Fabrication, Inc.” boardroom or our conference room are available for members to use during Chamber office hours. (Requires approval from chamber staff).
Collective Voice in Business
Your involvement in areas such as workforce development, education, public policy, minority development, leadership and more allow you to have an active role in issues that directly impact your business daily on a local, state and federal level. We work directly with local, state and federal leaders to make sure the voice of our local business community is heard through our Public Policy Agenda developed by Chamber members each year.
