Vision

The Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce will be the focal point for the business community of Carlisle, Iowa.

Is the “go to” resource for advocacy, education, and resources for Carlisle businesses and for the Carlisle community overall.

Develops and nurture relationships with government, educational organizations, and other community sectors to facilitate the needs and interests of the business community.

 

Vision for Member Involvement

Chamber members rely on and respect the value and benefits we consistently deliver. As a result, our members participate in our programs because they are relevant, pertinent to our members. They feel the Chamber and our programs are integral to their financial and organizational success.

Our Chamber Board working committees and task forces are well-led and enjoy strong support and Chamber member participation.

 

Chamber Membership is an effective business strategy

A national survey of 2,000 adults, conducted by the Atlanta-based firm, The Schapiro Group, reveals that being active in a local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy because two-thirds of consumers believe that such companies use good business practices, are reputable, care about their customers, and are involved in the community.

The study also shows when consumers know that a small business is a member of the chamber of commerce, they are 49% more likely to think favorably of it and 80% more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future. Consumer awareness, increase in local reputation are also up for Chamber members.

 

Carlisle Area Chamber of Commerce members hold dual membership with the Greater Des Moines Partnership.  Benefits include:

  • Promotion in front of current and future customers in the Chamber Business and Community Directory, on the Websites and through social media, and as a Chamber Expert at monthly meetings.
  • Networking and personal development, including business and leadership skills, at monthly meetings and special events, educational workshops, legislative forums and meetings, community and area events. Chamber Connectors and committee participation are additional opportunities to work with your peers.
  • Pertinent information that may affect your business in weekly email blasts and bi-monthly newsletters. 

 

Members are encouraged to be active, get involved and additionally, take time to reduce stress, get to know your peers, and have fun at business, social, recreational and community events.
