YOUR Union County Chamber champions business growth and business prosperity throughout Union County. With over 550 members, we realize there are many reasons for joining the Chamber and a wide variety of ways we can champion such a diverse membership. 

Based on feedback from members, we’ve identified the top benefits business are seeking when they make an ongoing investment in the Chamber.

Four of the most common are:

    • » Connections
    • » Visibility
    • » Influence
    • » Impact

We’ve written new informational series to inform members how we are working every day to create a thriving business community across Union County, starting with making connections.

Connections

Ask most people what Chambers do, and a lot of answers will revolve around bringing people together. We understand how hard it can be to get connected with the right people who can help your business grow, which is why we are on a mission to be the number-one connector of business leaders.

We accomplish this task with a robust events program. It’s been 1 year since YOUR Chamber returned to in-person events.  Since then, we have helped hundreds of people find the connections they need to grow their business through over 50 networking and professional development events.

We host a variety of events including:

Connections Events

Our events provide opportunities to develop meaningful relationships with other members who are potential customers, vendors, and referral sources.  Along with networking, many events provide professional and business development topics, led by subject matter experts. Often, the topics for these events come from surveys of our members and can include updates to tax law, marketing tips, sales strategies, recruitment suggestions, etc.

Take a look at what our members are saying:
