The Chamber of Commerce has a good reputation, and many consumers have positive perceptions of their members and their businesses. In fact, according to a study conducted by the Schapiro Group, 49% of consumers were more likely to think favorably of a local business if it was a member of the local Chamber— and 80% were more likely to purchase a product or service from a Chamber member.
