“In 2009 I had my ah-hah moment in regards to the impact of the Chamber of Commerce on our business. I accepted the award for Technology Company of the Year and a photo of that moment was captured by the Democrat and the Aegis Partnership (member just really doesn’t cover it) with the Chamber was off to the races in a new gear. We had been members for a while, but it was time to really engage for networking and community involvement. The next year I chaired Access Tallahassee (when I used to be young),went through Leadership Tallahassee, continued my run of 12 straight Annual Conferences, Business after Hours, Lunch and Learns, Committee involvement and more specific programs like the Light House of the Big Bend effort last year, very powerful. When people ask if Aegis is a member of the Chamber, I say yes, and let me tell you how it has helped our company.”

“Our membership in the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce results in weekly benefits. We attend Business Nuts and Bolts, Business After Hours, Lunch & Learn and many of the ribbon cuttings. These provide opportunities to meet and serve new and existing members which equates to increased profits. The chamber leadership team constantly provides top-notch educational and networking events which produce tangible results and every year the programming gets even better.”

John Buck

“As an active Chamber member and member of Leads Group 4, I have been able to significantly grow our brand in this area. The networking opportunities are endless - my favorite being the Professional Women's Forum. They always have dynamic speakers and have an excellent turnout. I definitely recommend businesses to not only join The Chamber but to get involved! Attend the events, join a Leads Group and take advantage of all the opportunities The Chamber provides. You won't regret it!”

“Being a member of the Chamber has been a huge blessing for our business and for us personally. We've met so many wonderful people through various Chamber events. And the people at the Chamber have been so good to us, introducing us to other good people who share our passion for loving Tallahassee. Membership has been a great investment, of both time and money.”

“When I arrived Tallahassee in the Fall of 1967 to lease Tallahassee's first ever High-Rise office building (now Bank of America bldg.) I was so glad to be an active member of the Chamber; women in business was unheard of then; I was the first female to join the Chamber. We were all so busy doing so much for our community and still the Chamber does so much for our great City of Tallahasseey; my sincere appreciaation to all of you for a greeat Job benefiting all of us!”

“The day-to-day business challenges can be all encompassing and we sometimes tend to stay in our silos, working to get our jobs done to the best of our ability. At the Chamber Conference, I quickly learned how easy it is to meet and talk with business leaders I might not otherwise have the opportunity to talk with. I have also gained valuable information and knowledge from the General Sessions and the Workshops. I have learned about business trends and met business leaders who were relocating to Tallahassee.”

“My 20 year involvement in the Chamber has reaped numerous benefits--from securing new clients to advocacy on issues important to our community”

Karen Moore

“Participating in Chamber events assist us in developing relationships with other valuable local businesses and helps direct us in learning how to support the local economy. The Chamber events gives us opportunities to network and keep our local business name amongst others in the community in a way that no other marketing opportunities do.”

“The leads groups are one of the best investments I made in our business, we have over 100 clients that can be tracked back to that group in direct or indirect referrals.”

“Benefits have been less about our bottom line and more about improving our employees and overall business. Access to informative workshops has helped our staff build skills in many areas. Networking has provided us with valuable resources we tap into for a variety of services and products.”
