Join The Chamber

Did you know that studies show that 80% of consumers are more likely to buy products from a Chamber member? And, about two-thirds of business decision-makers are more likely to do business with a Chamber member? Being a Chamber member provides you instant access to a network of other area businesses and organizations who also care about our community and want to see it thrive and be successful. At the Hancock Chamber we believe strongly in this mantra: “People do business with those they know and trust.” A Chamber membership is an investment in the future of your business and is the perfect way to build stronger relationships in the community, promote your business, gain greater access to business contacts, enhance exposure for your business, and ensure representation on local, state and federal issues.


Why should you join the Hancock Chamber? Here’s what our members and strategic partners have to say…

Lazy Magnolia logo“Our membership in the Hancock Chamber of Commerce has been an extremely rewarding association. The experience has provided a vehicle for us to meet new people and make business contacts that have been valuable in expanding growth opportunities. Another critical aspect of our membership is the availability of quality, informative workshops and seminars that have been excellent tools to learn from other professionals about what has been successful in expanding their own businesses, as well as best practices. We highly recommend membership in the Chamber to any business.”
