Why should you join the Chamber?
Business Training & Support
Your membership will now include access to the Cordova Business Empowerment Summit! This event aims to facilitate a gathering of Cordova business leaders and provide them with education and guidance to uplevel their organization on multiple fronts. Including vital resources to our business community, the two-day event in November will be followed by a second session in April. We also offer access to skill-building, facilitated collaboration sessions to connect you with other businesses, and networking events to help you grow and scale with less pain and more control.
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.
