Join our Chamber Today!
We would like to invite your business to join the Benton / West City Area Chamber of Commerce. Your community’s chamber has expanded over the past year and we would like to partner with you on projects we have planned for 2018. Some of our additional member benefits included:
ChamberNation: This online service provides our members with resources to further promote and expand their business. You will receive login information to allow you to submit events for the chamber calendar and e-news, easily share posts on your social media accounts, post press –releases and business news, take online classes, and manage your membership account. For those without a personal website, we have Traffic Catcher Sites (TCS) that are available to give members an additional online presence.
Business After Hours & Quarterly Luncheons: Invitations to special networking & members-only events.
Unique Promotional Projects: In 2017, we installed new light pole banners along main streets that will be up for 3 years. We are looking into a new promotion project for 2018 and encourage member input.
Tourism Outreach: From our contribution to the Rend Lake Visitor Guide to our billboard along I-57 which is viewed by over 32,000 vehicles every day, we are committed to introducing thousands of lake visitors to our members.
Community Events: Be the first to learn about and be part of hallmark community events such as the Rend Lake Water Festival, Rend Lake Fireworks, and Rend Lake Car Show.
AGE Energy Savings Program: Explore the opportunity to save money on your energy bills by joining the Southern Illinois Chamber of Commerce Electricity and Natural Gas Buying Group. AGE partners with over 15 chambers in our area, and our buying group saved around $75,000 in power costs in 2017. The chamber also benefits from this program and it helps to fund our scholarship program. Learn More
