What Our Members are Saying
“I joined the Chamber in 2003 just shortly after opening Assured Comfort Heating & Air. I'm so proud to be a member of the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce because I believe the Chamber has a vital impact on living and doing business in Douglas County. The Chamber does a wonderful job of providing a conduit for the county, city, education system, and local businesses to all work together towards the greater good. I've realized many membership benefits over the years and the one that repeats itself time after time is the great exposure my company receives and the promotion of our core values to the communities we serve.”
Jerry Hall, Owner Assured Comfort Heating & Air
“My husband and I have used our Chamber membership to grow our family business from the day of our ribbon cutting. We have had a great response from our participation in the annual Chamber Expo at the mall and have gotten many leads from the Chamber’s new resident welcome center on Church Street. Utilizing our Chamber benefits are a regular part of our success strategy.”
Diane Daniel, Co-Owner Daniel Enterprises, Inc.
“For my business, Chamber membership is all about exposure, exposure, exposure! The return on investment is above and beyond any organization I have been a part of. Being a member for me is not just the ROI, but the lifelong friendships I have made are enough to keep me coming back for more. You get out of it what you put into it and when you stay connected is when the magic happens!”
