How to Get the Most out of your Membership


Everyone always asks " What are the benefits on being a Member?"  We answered that question for you on our benefits page 

What is equality important is "How to get the most out of your membership?"

You chamber supports all businesses in our region, however, when you become a member you are entiled to so much more.

Becoming a chamber can be so much more than paying a yearly membership fee and getting a sign for your door.  That is why we have created this page for you, so you can get the most benefits for you.

1.  Do you know we have a newsletter? 
Signing up is easy, just email me at office@brookschamber.ab.ca and you will have valuable information sent directly to your email.  We will keep you up-to-date on grants, programs, advocacy, policies and so much more. 

2. Your Chamber loves to Support Local
Got an event? New product or service?  We want to know.  We will use our social media to help you get the word out - for free!

3. Coupons are so, last Decade
Coupons are costly to print, expire and need to be printed again. That is why we recommend you sign up for our Love Local Program.  You fill out a short form with the discount you will provide to anyone who has our Love Local Key Chain.  You and your employees will each get their own key chain to be used for your own discounts at participating merchants. What is the cost - that is easy, it free to members.

3. Microsites - what are microsites?
Each chamber member will have access to their own mini website from our directory page.  This information is shared, in our soon to be rebranded Brooks-Newell Network. Use it as a free link to your website or promote an event, product or service.

4. Looking for ways to attract and retain employees?
We are a fantastic insurance benefit program for chamber members.  Prices are kept low because of our vast membership from all chambers across Canada.

5. Need a speaker for an upcoming event?
I am fluent in two languages, english and business.  We would love to come out to your event and speak.

6. Got knowledge or a skill that other member might be needing?
We hold training seminars and workshops year round.  We love to have local experts speak at these events so we can learn more about you and what you have to offer.

7.  Networking, yes and yes
We hold networking events like business after hours - where members come to your place of business after hours to network and view your facility.  This is a great way to get new people in the door.  All you need to do is let us know you are interested in hosting an event.

8. Referall Program
Love us? Fantastic, tell your business associates about us and get referral dollars from us.
Not happy?  This is an opportunity for both of us.  Let sit down and chat about what is not working. 

9. Have your say, become a part of the Team
One of the most valuable and rewarding part of being the chamber can be volunteering to be a part of our team and sit on our board.  You get to meet other great local business leaders and help shape the direction of the chamber. For more information click here.
