The Chamber is a great way to network and discover all that is going on within the City of Newark and neighboring cities. With so many new businesses coming into the City, it is one of the best ways to connect and meet with any number of new people – people who you may find yourself doing business with or who become other conduits to new business opportunities for you. Because of the closely established relationships the Chamber has built with our elected officials, reaching out to express your concerns and share ideas with city, regional and state leaders is a natural course of action.
As a Newark Chamber Member, you have the ability to grow your own business through many channels. These include many face to face opportunities, social media promotion by the Chamber, and via our direct email communication with hundreds of business people and subscribed residents, getting the word out about almost anything you want to promote for and about your business.
Homewood Suites has benefited greatly from our Chamber Membership in a number of ways: access to information provided by the Chamber on new upcoming businesses in the area; the opportunities to showcase our hotel at business events throughout the year; easy access to city officials coordinated by the Chamber, to share and often resolve our issues and concerns; and, the opportunity for our employees to work together in team-building opportunities alongside other chamber members and city people on many volunteer activities in which we participate for the betterment of the community. Relationships grow and are strengthened when you work side-by-side, get to know each other, and understand that together we can do so much that we can’t do alone.
Am I an advocate for the Chamber? YES, I am, and I am honored to serve as the chairman of this organization. I invite you to get to know your Chamber. Get involved at whatever level you can, and see how it will benefit you, your business, and our City.
