Chamber gives local businesses the lowdown

August 20, 2012 by  

The Rolling Meadows Chamber of Commerce will soon be holding a ‘value orientation event’ at Pepe’s Mexican Restaurant. This is a free event and refreshments will be served.

The goal of the event is to show the local business community the value and benefits it receives by belonging to the Chamber of Commerce. Many local dignitaries will be in attendance, such as Mayor Tom Rooney, the board of the Chamber of Commerce, the city manager, the police chief, the fire chief, and state representative Tom Morrison.

Those who attend will find out about the types of discounts chamber members can receive, the numerous networking opportunities in which they can take part, the various social events held throughout the year and the opportunity for advertising and sponsorship of those events.

With networking also likely to form part of the session, those who do plan to attend would be wise to contact Rolling Meadows printing companies for a new business card printing order. It is important to make sure that business cards are in perfect condition, that they are up to date, and that they have enough in supply to hand out to everyone who wants one.

The event will take place on August 29 from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. In addition to providing numerous benefits and discounts for their members, chambers of commerce also advocate with local government on behalf of member companies. They let it be known how proposed laws will affect their members and often propose compromises.
