Did you know?
As a Board Member, I regularly visit the Melville Chamber website to find out if there are resources or particular businesses that are members during my business day. I am often asked by colleagues if I know of a Limo company for weddings or proms or for help finding a marketing company or other kind of company. I try to quickly look up on the Chamber website to give them some names and numbers of our members. I may not use the services directly of our members but I will refer all of my friends and colleagues to businesses that I know through the Chamber. So the next time you are looking for a business go to the Melville Chamber website if you don't have anyone in your contacts that can provide you the services I am sure there is a member who can!
When the Chamber Board was looking to redesign our website we went to our membership to find a company and used the resources we had in our membership. Be on the lookout for a new website coming soon for the Chamber and special thanks to Brainstorm Studio at
designing the website which will be launched very soon.
