The San Angelo Chamber of Commerce is a membership association whose purpose is to foster and promote a business and tourism environment which assures the economic growth and well-being of our members and our community.
The Chamber is an advocate for your business. It is very important that appropriate attention be given to issues that affect our community and your business at the state and national levels. The Chamber leads that effort through its government affairs program.
Put your membership to work for you by accessing business leads.
If your business can benefit from marketing to new members of our community or to people who are just preparing to make the move, you should request your free subscription to these monthly lists:
- Newcomers List
- Guess Who’s Moving to San Angelo List
You can be a part of the decision-making process that affects our entire community. Through committee participation and attendance at Chamber functions, you are helping to gain exposure for your business while helping your city grow and prosper.
Your company, name, address, phone, email and web address, as well as your products or services, will appear in the membership listing on the Chamber’s website (click here to access our online directory) and in the business listings in Oasis, San Angelo’s new resident guide. New businesses and residents often turn to the Chamber first for referrals.
If your business is new, recently relocated, expanding the facilities or expanding services you can schedule a ribbon cutting ceremony through the Chamber. This is a free service offered to Chamber members.
If your business is celebrating a significant anniversary contact the Chamber to schedule your special anniversary celebration.
Your ribbon cutting or anniversary celebration photo will be published in the Chamber e-newsletter, on all our social media outlets and other media sources.
Your membership door sticker offers visibility and credibility to your business. Your customers will instantly recognize that you support your community.
You’ll be listed in the Chamber of Commerce e-newsletter in the “Welcome New Members” section, and your ribbon cutting photo will be featured on the Chamber of Commerce website. You may also request a free link directly to your own website.
Highlight your business news in the “Member Memo” section of the Chamber’s newsletter. The e-newsletter is sent out two times per month to more than 1,800 of your fellow businesses monthly. This is a free service for members.
You’ll be introduced at a Chamber luncheon as a new member and allowed to give a 30-second commercial about your business. The luncheons are generally held on the second Tuesday of each month and attendance is 125-200.
Many people turn to the Chamber for referrals. As a benefit of your membership, we provide business referrals first to Chamber members. Hundreds of these referrals are provided each month.
The Chamber offers opportunities throughout the year for members to attend functions and meet fellow members… and potential new customers! We encourage you to attend any or all of these events:
- Annual Banquet
- Monthly Luncheons
- Member Orientations
- Monthly Business @ Happy Hour
At Business @ Happy Hour, approximately 50-100 members meet, exchange business cards and develop new contacts. Business @ Happy Hour is held at a different location the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5-6:30 p.m
