The Erwin Area Chamber of Commerce is financed primarily by the investment of its members. Any individual or business who has an interest in investing in the community via the Chamber is eligible to apply for membership.

The main benefits to becoming a member are Making Connections, Getting Noticed, and Giving Back.

Making Connections:

  • When you join the Erwin Area Chamber of Commerce, you will get access to not only other members, which includes businesses and non-profit organizations, but you will also have ample opportunity to meet other local small business owners, professionals, entrepreneurs, and even potential customers through twice monthly FREE networking events.
  • Anyone can attend these events but only Members can host them at their place of business!

Getting Noticed:

  • When you join the Chamber, we will immediately announce your membership on our social media pages and in our monthly newsletter as well as add you to our website’s Member Directory.
  • On an ongoing basis, we make an effort to share your Facebook posts on our Chamber page or shout you out periodically.
  • Upon request, we will share advertisements for you, promote your events, and communicate important announcements on your behalf in our monthly newsletter and on our social media pages.
  • Each month, Members vote on a “Business of the Month”. If you are selected as the winner, announcements will be made on our website, on our social media pages, and in our monthly newsletter.
  • You will receive an updated Membership plaque each year which you can display in your business to show that you proudly support your community.
  • You will also have the opportunity to attend an annual Member banquet complete with dinner and an awards ceremony recognizing our Members’ contributions and accomplishments.

Giving Back:

  • Your membership dues help us host numerous events throughout the year which include Denim Days, Spring Fling, Summer Concert Series, and the Christmas Parade.
  • You will also have ample opportunity to give back to your community through additional event sponsorships and volunteer opportunities. Not only is this an outstanding way to pour back into the community that helps make your business so successful but it also increases your visibility in the community.
  • Sponsors and volunteers are highlighted in all promotional materials for events – you make these local events possible. We cannot do what we do without you and we make sure our community knows that.

Note: Membership investments in the chamber are fully tax deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense.
