Membership Has Its ADVANTAGES!!!
Chamber Advantage is an exclusive package of tangible benefits included with your membership. After
surveying our members, your Chamber conducted a Request for Proposal process and negotiated special pricing on products & services our members suggested. By taking advantage of one or more of these programs to save money on your operating expenses, your business will see a tangible return on your membership investment in no time!  We work for you to ensure you have a strong Return on Investment.  
Affordable Legal and Identity Theft Protection

The Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with Legal Shield for an exclusive Chamber member discount program. 
Millions of people lose their identities every year, don't be one of them! That's why you need a company that's more than a website or data breach specific coverage.  You need an established institution that understands all the potential threats, how to prevent them and how to restore any damage done.

LegalShield provides the legal and identity theft protection you, your family, and business need and deserve. 
Legal Shield offers Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce members a  member discount program when using this SAVINGS LINK.
