Become A Member

 

Your membership is one of the most important business investments that you can make.

The Chamber is the largest and  most activated business network in the district, working together with business to create conditions for collective success within our district. We are committed to working to create a climate of opportunity for business locally and work with businesses individually to explore their specific value in membership. Our dedicated staff work to continually assess our programming to ensure it is relevant and timely for members. We offer networking events such as our monthly Business Breakfast and facilitate one on one networking through our Coffee and Conversation meetings. We work to connect business with local government and we work with government to pass on concerns of the local business community and its members. We promote programs that can assist business owners in accessing grants and training and work closely with local and regional governmental organziations. 

Marketing your business as a Chamber member gives you:

Visibility – Increase your visibility – we offer excellent collaborative advertising and marketing opportunities that can help you to showcase your business including the Carleton Place Visitor Information Guide, social media profiles, and Think Local Lanark!

Credibility – Raise your reputation. Did you know that 63% of consumers are more likely to shop at a business that is a member of a Chamber of Commerce?

Networking – Meet other like-minded business owners – It’s not just who you know, it’s who others know. Networking is a powerful way to grow your business, especially in a small community. We offer monthly networking events like Speed Networking and Business Breakfasts and have introduced Coffee & Conversation – monthly meetups at a local café.

Learning – Learn some new things – get a competitive edge over non-members with exclusive training opportunities on a variety of hot topics. Plus get notified of local programming that can benefit your business through our member-only newsletter.
