Become a chamber member
Would you or someone you know in the business community like to become more involved?
Fallon Chamber of Commerce would like to extend its invitation to you to become a board member.
The chamber provides resources, support and education to help businesses be successful. The chamber is currently working on job training, internships and scholarship programs for up and coming youth looking to get into the business world.
The chamber understands it’s made up of small businesses wants to provide all the resources you need to run a successful business on a local, state and federal level.
The chamber works hard to represent the local business community, but as a non-profit 501(c)6 organization, the chamber relies on members and board of directors to partner with us to serve businesses and our community as a whole! Many people wonder what it is the Chamber of Commerce is exactly.
By definition, a chamber of commerce is a local organization of businesses whose goal is to further the interests of businesses. Business owners in towns and cities form these local societies to advocate on behalf of the business community. Local Chambers work on the local level to bring the business community together to develop strong local networks, which can result in a business-to-business exchange.
In most cases, local Chambers work with their local government, such as their mayor, their city council and local representatives to develop pro-business initiatives.
If interested please nominate yourself or someone that you think would be vital to aiding our business community.
For information, contact The Chamber 775-423-2544 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
