“Never has Chamber Membership been of such importance to me or indeed my business as in 2020.
Firstly, the Chamber has been the ”One Stop Shop ” for all information such as Grants, supports and interagency help through the pandemic. This was a huge benefit to me as a member as it saved me countless hours of time and anxiety trying to find things out. The manner in which The Chamber reacted and communicated all the resources that were available was hugely efficient.
Secondly, the benefit of Chamber membership from a personal point of view was also immense. The wellbeing and mental health workshops must be commended, as not only were the Chamber on top of all things Financial but also on personal wellbeing which was a massive part of Recovery.
Needless to say, knowing that the Chamber membership gives me access to a potential €800,00 pot of sales through the Chamber Shopping Voucher Scheme is also hugely encouraging in these dark times and gives me great hope for the future.
The other aspect of membership that has had a big effect on our business is being tagged and promoted through social media. The Chamber has such a large following that being recognised through this format has definitely helped. When people that physically call to our shop say to us they saw us tagged on the Chamber Facebook page is a big benefit.
All of these advantages would not have been available to us as a business had we not been members so it’s definitely the first bill on our list to be paid in the future”
