A few benefits to being in the RG Chamber ...


  1. Membership brings credibility to your business . You can increase positive perception among consumers and business owners when you're identified as a member of a chamber of commerce.
  2. Increase your visibility in the community. The chamber also promotes your grand opening/ ribbon-cutting ceremony and assist with any public relations efforts.
  3. Create networking opportunities. You can build your business while promoting developments of keen interest to local businesses and the community at large.
  4. Make business contacts. The chamber's most fundamental mission is to generate more business activity for the community. The chamber initiates more business-to-business commerce and more opportunities for networking and connecting local professionals than is available through most other local organizations.
  5. Receive chamber newsletters. Newsletters provide new member information, interesting information and details about up-and-coming chamber events, among other things.
  6. Chamber events and programs. Chamber events and programs provide members with great opportunities to get to know new people and expand their prospect base. Chamber events are innovative and fun ways to help members meet potential customers, clients and vendors- and generate new business leads.
