“We joined the Chamber in 2003 just shortly after opening Assured Comfort Heating, Air & Plumbing. I’m so proud to be a member of the Douglas County Chamber 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.”
“When I started Beyond the Front Porch, I knew that I would need to be part of the Chamber to bring exposure to our mission. The Chamber offered the platform for us to be engaged with businesses and people who might not have otherwise known who we are and how we impact the community. Everyone who works at the Chamber has been encouraging and so helpful to the point of feeling like they are an extension of our marketing team. Being a member of the Douglas County Chamber in the beginning of our journey certainly gave us the push we needed to establish our credibility!”
