I never did. I focused on smaller, more personally connected niche groups... like my golf club, husband's work, etc.

My company belongs but I do not individually.
We did in West Los Angeles, No on network opps, Napa same result, checked it out here and decided not to. A
Not currently a member. In past locations never saw the worth!
I no longer belong to the chamber for many reasons....
I used to belong. I no longer belong because I did not find it a good use of my time.
I did for a couple of years but did not find it advantageous.
Good question. I do not because I feel Dallas is too big of a city to be of benefit to me.
I do not belong to one, but think it would be worth it.
I do not know but know some agents who do. A few have found it worthwhile. I think the individual makes the difference and not necessarily the organization.
No I am not, was in the past and it was not worthwhile
No I am not a member.
For some reason I never have done that but I think it is a good thing.
30+ years ago, I did join... but not for long.... there are quicker and easier ways to find business.... that's one method but it's for the "patient agent" and I am not that!!! I want it instantly and alot of it....
yes and not really BUT... I chose to support them anyway. It's a community thing.
Political reason: for an organization that is supposed to pro-business, the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce is extremely liberal, pro-Government, often anti-business. I have no use for them.
No I do not. Our realtor association has far more members than the local chamber, oddly enough!
Wow! It never occurred to me to join the Chamber of Commerce!
My office belongs to the local chamber. I personally don't. I don't do much with the chamber, either. I guess it's a clicking bunch of people. I'm friends with several business owners that have told me that. I would rather put my time to better use.
1. No I don't
2. Never felt here it was as worth while as other groups offered better networking.
I served on a chamber of commerce board of directors and chaired many committies. It was a valuable experience.
2) I don't know because we haven't really applied ourselves to networking like we should be doing. However, memberships allows us to place our personal brochures and marketing materials in the Chamber office which is right across the street from the beach and resort in our touristy town, so we keep our membership up for that alone. Sellers LOVE it that we have their property brochures in that location for people to grab.
Sally K. & David L. Hanson -
1. Not yet.
2. Yes, of course. ActiveRain for example is the best network.
I do not, as it seems to be more of a coffee clutch and i would prefere clutching with my sphere.
Not a member.
In my location, the Chamber of Commerce has a very prominent location in visitor saturated downtown Dunedin.
Being a member has been highly productive.
Worthwhile networking opportunities? No.
Just to the north, Palm Harbor has a Chamber of Commerce in a location NO ONE WOULD VISIT. I am not a member of Palm Harbor.
The Chamber has been after me for a long time, and I have never joined due to many real estate agents being long time members. However, I do have a meeting tomorrow with a chamber representative - just for the SEO that a backlink may have to the company website.
We used to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. We did not renew our membership last year. For it to be beneficial you need to be visible and attend the majority of their events. We found we couldn't make the time commitment and there is no point in being a member if you are not active.
I used to, but left because I didn't get a worthwhile ROI.
Have had a few REALTOR friends join, but did not see any benefit after a year.
No, although I've explored the possibility.
No, their fee is way over my budget! $1500 a year for membership
We formerly did belong, but it never brought us any additional business.
I used to, but it was not very fun or benficial. I may give it another chance some day as i have seen some turnover of those that were not so nice
They are an empty organization but the link from them to my website is priceless as is their logo on my sites.
No, therefore no
I don't belong or participate.
Yes, great networking but seldom get any business from it.
Yes, I am a member but, haven't really gotten a thing from networking. I do love their relo packets though! ;-)
I know of people that do very well when it comes to business.
