Why belong to the Chamber? In your opinion, why is the Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce important to our community?

The community is stronger when businesses work together. We can provide much better service to our members / customers because of the cooperation between us and other businesses in Beloit. The Chamber facilitates this cooperation. Being new to Kansas I especially found the Chamber so helpful to get connected in Beloit.

Why belong to the Chamber? In your opinion, why is the Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce important to our community?

Being a member of the Beloit Area Chamber of Commerce shows customers and other businesses that we are invested in the success of Beloit. Being a member means supporting the community and when in need, the community will support us. The Chamber of Commerce provides the tools, resources and guidance when necessary for small businesses and business owners to succeed. If our local businesses are successful, out community and the people who live here are more successful.

Post-Covid—The Mitchell County Strong campaign, which was created in response to the pandemic and shutdown, would have never been possible without the Chamber of Commerce. Because the Chamber actively engages with its members, when a need arose and it was apparent that something needed to be done to support and sustain these local businesses, they knew who they could turn to for assistance. The Chamber, had already established a comradery among area businesses and business owners and was able to steer the collective group, so that no one got left behind. It gave able patrons a meaningful place to spend their dollars, knowing they were helping to keep local businesses open.
