Benefits of Membership

A central objective of the Greater Norwalk Chamber of Commerce is to provide varied and valuable benefits for its membership, enabling businesses to develop, advance and grow.

Networking

The Chamber provides numerous networking opportunities for its members. The two major programs in this category are the Business After Hours and Networking Breakfast. The Chamber also takes part in regional multi-Chamber expos and networking events throughout the year. Although all Chamber events provide the opportunity to network, these programs emphasize this particular aspect, while also highlighting a hosting Chamber member.

Marketing Opportunities

The Chamber offers members a variety of means by which to promote and market their business. This may be accomplished through acquiring a mailing list, placing inserts in regular Chamber mailings, or placing ads in the annual directory, newsletter, or other marketing vehicles. The Chamber also provides the opportunity for member profiles and member news in its newsletter, The Chamber Report, and e-newsletter, The Chamber E-port.

Valuable Programming

The Chamber provides educational
and informative seminars and 
programs throughout the year to 
build awareness on a myriad of
 topics, and to keep businesses
 abreast of issues and matters
 affecting their region and business
 community, such as the Economic 
Outlook Luncheon, Mayor’s State of 
the City, Regional Roundtable,
 various political forms and more.

Government Affairs


The Chamber provides various 
programming in relation to
 government and politics, ranging 
from issue-focused forums to
 electoral debates. In addition, the 
Government Affairs Committee

 concern on a local, state, and even 
federal level. They also work with 
legislators and government officials 
to address targeted needs and goals
