Top 10 Reasons To Join
Our member companies see the benefit of joining the Greater Silver Spring Chamber of Commerce for numerous reasons. Here are the Top 10:
1. GSSCC gives business a voice. The Chamber is the only Silver Spring organization working to give business a strong voice in state and local issues. The Chamber monitors state and local legislative and regulatory matters, provides accurate information to our members, and communicates the views of the business community to law and policy makers.
2. GSSCC promotes its member businesses to each other and the community through an online searchable directory on the Chamber's website. Members have the opportunity to upgrade and enhance their listings to include direct links to their own websites and their company logos on the search landing page.
3. GSSCC helps members save money through its Energy Purchasing Co-Operative, featuring group purchasing and a competitive bid process for both commercial and residential customers. Typically, participating members can save the equivalent of their highest month's electric or natural gas bill.
4. GSSCC keeps members informed through the GSSCC Weekly Update, an email newsletter that features the latest business issues that affect greater Silver Spring, news about GSSCC members, and updates on GSSCC events and accomplishments.
5. GSSCC provides members-only referrals to callers seeking goods and services in greater Silver Spring.
6. GSSCC gives members access and exposure to some 50 potential customers each month at the Chamber's Networking Breakfasts.
7. GSSCC helps members introduce their companies to other Chamber members through opportunities to host one of the monthly "Business After Hours" networking events.
8. GSSCC gives members more visibility at the annual "Discover the Taste of Silver Spring," an evening of networking and culinary delights featuring the unique cuisine of Silver Spring's participating restaurants and its annual anniversary "SchmoozaPalooza" networking extravaganza and trade show.
9. GSSCC recognizes and honors member companies at the Chamber's annual "Business Awards & Installation Dinner."
10. GSSCC offers small business members access to free use of the conference room adjacent to the Chamber offices.
