Who Sponsors The Chamber Link?

100+ Chambers are 

There is no charge to be a Sponsor Chamber!

You control your content. You may add, delete or edit all of your Chamber's events on our easy to use calendar.

If time is an issue - just tell us the events you want to add and we will do it for you.

Besides mixers - you may add other events to broadcast to Chamber of Commerce members area-wide! Expos, Ribbon-cuttings, Festivals, Networking Clubs, Special Events. The decision to include an event is yours.

The medium we use to broadcast The Chamber Link to the members is a twice-monthly e-mail newsletter via Constant Contact. Many Chambers are familiar with Constant Contact and use it themselves to communicate with their members. Rest assured that we honor all opt-outs. Also, we never sell or otherwise transfer our lists to any outside party.

As a Sponsor Chamber - you may also send us news items (either Chamber news or member news) for publication on our web site or distribution in our emails. These promotions are usually free to the chambers for the first year or two and thereafter a very nominal price may be asked for that service. Calendar entry of events will always be free.

If you choose to not be a Sponsor Chamber - as a free service, we will still update the Calendar with your evening mixers (evening mixers only) as published on each Chamber's website.

We invite you to take a moment to review what Chamber managements and members are saying about The Chamber Link.  See Kudos > 

Feel free to call any of our Sponsor Chambers for a reference.

If you have any questions that you want us to answer before moving forward, please email David de Leeuw at David@TheChamberLink.com or call him at 925.817.7808
