Nowadays, many companies are looking to local business organizations as sources for networking and sales opportunities. However, selecting the appropriate organization that has the best profile and programs for your business may require some investigation and research.
The ideal organization should have a mix of elements that give you and your company access to successful entrepreneurs and other influential individuals in the community. Additionally, it should provide the environment, exposure, education and qualified contacts that allow you to develop relationships that result in tangible business opportunities.
Financial reward is not the only reason to join a local business council. There are many other benefits for members. You can learn about best practices and get new ideas from members, publications and programs. These opportunities will enhance your professional career and give you a competitive edge.
When selecting the right organization for your business, consider the following questions:
• Does the organization offer free training and seminars to educate its members and the business community?
• Are there opportunities for members to actively participate in industry-related committees that will make members fully aware of legislation at the local, state and federal levels, which may impact the economy and local businesses environment?
• Is the organization involved in the economic development of the local community?
• Is it a not-for profit organization with a formal Board of Directors who are active community leaders?
Take the time investigate, talk to members, ask questions and if possible, attend an event as a guest before making a commitment. Keep in mind: this is not simply about a membership; this is about making an investment, and your return on investment is an important consideration in your decision- making process.
