How Can the Chamber Benefit Your Business?
- You can advertise and promote your business or organization a number of ways. One of the easiest is to provide the Chamber with special events at your organization to be posted on our public website event calendar!
- The Chamber periodically creates and distributes a Business Directory & Community Guide. As a member, you are invited to advertise your business name, phone number, location, hours, and a brief description of your products.
- Upon request, an Ambassador Plaque Presentation and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is a special service offered only to Chamber members. What a great way to celebrate opening a new business, moving to a new location or expanding your present location. Area media can be invited to attend and provide press coverage of the event.
- The Chamber offers great networking opportunities. Chamber breakfast meetings held the third Thursday of every month at Deb’s Diner are a great way to meet other members.
Great Volunteer Opportunities
- Christmas is the perfect time to help others. The Chamber “Santa Visit” provides members volunteer opportunities. And they find that decorating the Community Center and helping with the festivities is a great way to get into the holiday spirit.
- The Chamber and Lions Club co – hosts a Casino Night in April. Funds raised go towards scholarships, beautifying Main street, and maintaining the Community Center.
- Chamber members also participate in the annual Haunted Halloween Woods event hosted by the Three Pillars Senior Living retirement community.
- Enhance the look of downtown Dousman. Chamber members work with the Community Garden Club to maintain the flower beds and gazebos adjacent to the Glacial-Drumlin Bike Trail.
- Chamber staff and volunteers are continually striving to expand the programs that benefit business and organizations in the greater Dousman area. New ideas are always welcome.
Transforming ideas into action takes time and money. The Officers, Ambassadors and committee chairpersons are all volunteers. Whether you participate as a leader or a helper, your time and energy can help a fund-raising event generate money or help turn an idea into a reality.
Your business can make a difference!
