Benefits of Joining the Grapevine Chamber
Each Chamber member is given access to an exclusive member's area on the Chamber's website, providing listing customization options, along with the ability to post:
- Job listings
- Promotions as Hot Deals to the community or member-to-member
- Community events
The Chamber refers only its members to the public, with hundreds of requests each month. Also, there are more than 4,000 Community Directory & Referral Guide distributed in the area, which lists all of the Chamber's members with contact information.
New Business Help
New Chamber members are listed in the monthly newsletter and weekly email upon the completion of the application process. Both publications are distributed to the entire Chamber membership, and both are available online. New members are also introduced at the first monthly luncheon attended after joining the Chamber.
Networking opportunities are abundant with the Grapevine Chamber. Business After Hours Mixers, monthly luncheons, committees and numerous other events offer Chamber members the ability to get the word out about their business. Business cards are a must!
Sponsorship opportunities are available that allow constant visibility for your business on the Chamber website, newsletter, weekly email and special events. Promote your business with an event sponsorship at the annual Chamber Golf Tournament, Main Street Days, Grapefest, luncheons, mixers and new member breakfasts. Advertising opportunities are also available in the Chamber newsletter and directory.
Get involved with the Grapevine community by serving on a Chamber committee. Whether it meets once a week or once a month, serving on a committee offers your business the opportunity to grow by being involved with other local business owners, along with playing an active role in the community. The addition of the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (YEA!) offers Chamber members another way to get involved in the community.
Return on Investment
An investment in the Chamber of Commerce is deductible as a business expense, which can bring a great return on investment through networking, marketing, procurement and development to grow your business.
The Chamber is a legislative advocate on behalf of businesses in the Grapevine area. It serves as a conduit to inform business members on issues, legislation and activities on local, state and national levels that impact businesses.
The Chamber works closely with the City of Grapevine Economic Development Team to inform Chamber members on business activities and opportunities in the area. A monthly partnership meeting is held to educate, inform and communicate the City and Chamber’s efforts for positive business growth and retention.
Business and management assistance is available through the Leadership Grapevine program, which can help grow you or your employees’ leadership skills while learning about the Grapevine community.
