Vail Chamber membership is a great investment

Lourdes FerzaccaVail, CO, Colorado

Among the best investments you can make when starting or expanding your business is to join the Vail Chamber & Business Association. Your local association represents all businesses and owners of all levels, provides rich member benefit programs, and offers valuable industry contacts and knowledge that can help you be more efficient and profitable. And chamber membership is a great deal! The real dollar value of your membership far exceeds the cost of dues, even if you only consider the lobbying and representation, which is not available from any other source. Add the many tangible benefits, and membership in the Vail Chamber & Business Association can be the difference between success and failure when starting a business. No one argues that starting, maintaining or expanding a business in today’s business environment is not a complex, time-consuming task. Laws vary from one jurisdiction to the next, distribution channels fluctuate, and just staying abreast of regulations and how they affect your business can be daunting. Chamber membership can help you navigate the tangled bureaucratic and regulatory environment with information and assistance. Our database is a valuable tool and the weekly newsletter is a great source for information, whether local or valley-wide. The bi-monthly meetings are a great way to network, socialize and let others know about your services, products and business. Vail Chamber & Business Association membership keeps you in touch with your industry colleagues, both down the street and across the country. You can learn what your peers are doing in a friendly informative setting. However, this association is far more than just a social club. It gives you as a business a collective voice that’s absolutely necessary in today’s special interest political environment. It gives you representation, information and collaboration on important topics and dealings. Even when you are not present, you are being represented. But that collective voice is only as loud as the number of individual voices. More members mean greater representation and bargaining power, better, broader and more affordable benefits. Participation in the Vail Chamber & Business Association not only makes sense, but, frankly, it is the right thing to do for your business, your investors, your employees, your fellow neighboring businesses and for you. A network, a voice, and a rich source of business resources and ingredients for success in the your business.
