The Value of Membership

We often tell you about all the benefits of being a Boulder Chamber member. But there’s nothing like hearing it from the members, themselves. From our monthly and signature events to our member services to our advocacy work, our members recognize all they get from joining. On this page, we’re relating what they think.

The Boulder Chamber’s ability to advocate on behalf of local, independent businesses like ours is highly valued. Seeking input from members and then thoughtfully formulating recommendations on behalf of the group helps small businesses have a vested stake in the future of our community. The Boulder Chamber is a people-based organization; though they’re here for our business entities, they take the time to understand our people, our partnerships and what makes our businesses tick.

As a small (but growing) HR and recruiting company, we didn’t expect much from a chamber. However, we’ve been so thrilled that the Boulder Chamber works hard to treat the small, growing businesses with as much care as the large, established businesses. The staff is approachable and they are all wired to help as much as they can. I have been grateful for their heartfelt interest in me and my business. We also make sure to attend their different events as they are always high-quality, and full of good information.

Every business should be a Member of the Boulder Chamber and every Member should be involved. The Boulder Chamber is innovative, fun, resourceful and the best place to bring businesses together to learn, connect and prosper. I cannot say enough good things about the Boulder Chamber!
