Our goal is to provide resources, advocacy and connections for our members throughout the community. When Chamber members and community members find value in all we do, we know we’re doing our job. Here are just a few testimonials from our members.

“The biggest thing that being a part of the Chamber means is that the Boys and Girls Club has the member network to reach different ages of kids and even adults that want to volunteer here at the Boys and Girls Club.

“I think it’s huge. A lot of people don’t know a lot about the Boys and Girls Club, they don’t know much about nonprofit agencies, so being in this particular group will get different people speaking to different people – in which all that networking, in turn, is just positive for our organization.”

Bobby Moore, Boys and Girls Club

“I think that the Chamber as an organization provides a great way to meet other business owners and other business people and just get contacts within. And, you also build that network of trust with other business leaders and other employees of other businesses and it provides a great resource if you are looking for something to know I met this person at a Chamber event or I have seen this person in Chamber newsletters so it is a great way to provide that contact with other people. It also lets you know what’s going on, a lot of times if you don’t get a newsletter with those kinds of things you don’t know what’s going on in the community.”

Ellie Caldwell, Sackrider & Company

“My beliefs are that with Chamber membership it gives you the opportunity to meet a lot of new people and from a business standpoint people like to do business with people they know and the Chamber gives you the opportunity to meet a lot of people.”

Bob Baesler, Baeslers Market

“The Chamber provides an opportunity for members of Ivy Tech to connect with
business and industry in Vigo County. As we align our programs with the workforce needs in our community, it is important for us to hear the challenges, needs and future goals of the collective community. The chamber provides a group of multiple voices at the same time for us. It also allows us to be part of the collective vision of the community.”
