Why should you join the Chamber?
We are often the first contact for visitors planning a trip to Cordova or their first stop upon arriving in town. We also get hundreds of online searches and calls each year from individuals checking to see if a business is a chamber member or looking for a business to fill their needs. We refer only chamber members.
Publicity & Exposure
Chamber members receive measurable exposure through their listing on our credible and high-traffic website as well as through Chamber-generated emails, e-newsletters, print materials, social media, and cooperative advertising. We also offer Milestone Event support for Grand Opening, Re-Opening, Ribbon-Cutting, Anniversary, and Launch events to our members!
Cordova Chamber Members and their employees are now eligible for SALA healthcare coverage. This progressive alternative to healthcare insurance is a popular and low-cost option for employers to offer competitive benefits to employees and and good option for entrepreneurs to get coverage for themselves.
