Membership

Why join the Bend Chamber?

Becoming a member of the Bend Chamber of Commerce isn’t just about a decal on the door or a certificate on the wall. It shows your support for and investment in a vibrant business community. It means you’re standing shoulder to shoulder with your peers who want to help protect the innovative and collaborative business environment that we enjoy through connections, advocacy, resources, and leadership.

Connections

Being connected is a must when it comes to growing a business and creating new relationships. We’ve got you covered on this front, too, with a number of events that facilitate connections with new people outside of your contacts list and help you maintain connections with folks you haven’t seen in a while.

Advocacy

Advocacy is a huge part of what we do and we do it on your behalf. Essentially, while you’re busy working your business, we’re busy looking out for you. From the state legislature to local government bodies, the Bend Chamber has a constant “finger on the pulse” of the issues that affect the business community. That includes your business. The Chamber brings your perspective to our elected leaders on how policies and legislation affect us in the business trenches.

By becoming a member, you add another voice and perspective to the chorus of businesses in the Bend area and increase our strength as an impactful group. Our numbers do matter. State legislators and local officials frequently look to the Bend Chamber for information directly from our membership and use this information to justify their voting positions. Bottom line, the more members we represent, the greater the influence we have on key decisions being made.

Resources

As just about every business is strapped for resources and can use some assistance in one area or another, we provide tools to help support your business needs. Here are some examples:

Chamber Association Group Health Insurance (Providing affordable health insurance to your employees)
Member to Member Discount Program (Saving money)

Membership Benefits

As an independent organization, that receives no local government funding, your membership dollars help support an
informed business community, investing in the leaders of tomorrow, and driving a prosperous Central Oregon economy.
