Chamber membership offers multiple benefits

Credibility

Chamber membership is synonymous with credibility to customers. A recent national study reveals that when consumers know a business is a chamber member, they are 44% more likely to think favorably about it, 51% more likely to be highly aware of it, 57% more likely to think positively of its local reputation and 63% more likely to buy its goods and services.

Free and Reduced Rate Marketing Opportunities

Our Chamber website provides an overview of our community, community calendar, links to members’ websites, business announcements, etc. Members receive 50% discount off non-member rates for ads on the Public Square electronic message board (seen by over 17,000 vehicles daily). E-News announcements providing business news, awards, ribbon cuttings, events, etc. are sent to all members. Other opportunities include publicity at Scott Air Force Base and McKendree University events; cross chamber advertising; city map ads; gift certificate program; and event sponsorships.

Access

Membership provides you access to nearly 80 other businesses; business leaders and decision makers; organized networking opportunities; potential customers; and information and planning. Networking events include Business After Hours, Trivia Nights, Annual Dinner and the Holiday Party.

Visitors’ Center

The Chamber Visitors’ Center is often the first point of contact for people who are unfamiliar with the city of Lebanon. Our volunteers take very seriously the responsibility to present a polished, professional image of Lebanon to those interested in relocating, developing, shopping or visiting.

Added Financial Impact

The Chamber promotes Lebanon at every opportunity. The Chamber works with local, regional and state tourism publications advertising and promoting Lebanon. That’s an annual marketing benefit of approximately $10,000 to members.
