Membership is a SMART business decision

Why should your organization be a member of the Oakland Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce? Let’s talk about “what’s in it for me?”

Oakland and the East Bay become a better place to work, live, and play because of the activities and advocacy of the Chamber. And everyone in the community benefits.

Take advantage of the many opportunities that Chamber membership presents. 

You can:

Become more knowledgeable about state-of-the-art business practices and trends you can apply directly to your own organization.

Become more knowledgeable about your neighborhood, your market, your industry, your community.

Make new contacts resulting in more business opportunities, for both sales prospects, and potential business partners.
Draw on a vast resource of experience and expertise represented by professional Chamber staff, and the Chamber’s many members.

Join in the many opportunities for camaraderie, recreation, and a sense of belonging for you and your employees.

Market your business to other businesses through advertising, sponsorships, free Membership Directory, website listings, and personal contacts and exposure.
Reap the rewards via the many free or discounted products and services available to members only, from the Chamber, and from your fellow members.

Take advantage of the clout that comes with membership in the East Bay’s largest, strongest, and most effective business organization, providing leadership for more than 100 years.

So how do you get these benefits? You have to participate. Long-time members will tell you they benefit from their memberships in the Chamber in direct proportion to how much they, and their employees, get involved.
