    9 ways to make budget

    Trying to meet your company (or department) budget for 2014? Tap into $25 million in savings through your Chamber membership with these nine ways to save, grow and get connected in the new year! No time to read? No sweat -- just calculate your Chamber savings to get your ROI today!

    #1 Health Insurance
    There's lots of confusion, truly, but here's the bottom line: rates are rising. Exercise your Chamber membership benefit and lock in up to 4% savings on your company's healthcare coverage. Chamber member company DeanHouston did -- and said "we saved so much that we were able to offer vision and dental coverage for our employees." Start saving now!

    #2 Workers' Compensation
    Employees covered? Check. Company covered? Use your Chamber member discount to cover your business. Your membership merits a 53% discount (the maximum allowed by the Bureau of Workers' Compensation) and more: free Safety Council participation (a $1,200 value) and an additional 4% off when you complete the program. Plus, a 7% discount on Sheakely's Drug Free Safety Program. We saved the best for last: our members saved an average of nearly $5,000 last year! Start saving now!

    #3 Office Supplies
    This one's for you -- and your employees! Get up to 55% off on over 400 products, save on break room & janitorial services (think coffee and cleaning!) Don't forget about the free & next-day delivery on orders of $50 and more. Start saving now!

    #4 Credit & Debit Card Processing
    Pick up the phone and get a savings projection on the biggest convenience you offer to your customers. Infintech will review your plan and help you save up to 40% on your processing costs. Start saving now!

    #5 Airfare
    Gotta get to New York, Chicago or Charlotte? Put your tray table in an upright position and open your wallet for savings:  NEW Chamber members get 50% off up to 10 tickets, and Gold Chamber members get a 10% discount. Take the Ultimate Air Shuttle to NY from Lunken and now CVG, fly Ultimate to Chicago or Charlotte from Lunken. Start saving now!

    #6 Electricity
    If you own the building (or are responsible for the Duke bill) you should have a say in what you pay. Get fixed rate pricing on your electricity bill, and reduce your costs through our group-buying power discount today. Start saving now!

    #7 Gas
    Beat the $3 bar: get 15 cents off a gallon at 95 local Shell stores -- and thousands nationwide! With a Shell card from Gilligan Oil, you can manage your company's expenses and set per car/per employee spending limits. Need a diesel discount? Done! Start saving now!

    Cost savings are only half the equation. Customize your Chamber membership with these new add-ons for more leads and exposure opportunities:

    #8  ChamberAccess
    Connect with other area leaders at quarterly CEO Exchange Luncheons and VIP & Legislator Receptions, secure speakers for your business -- plus priority registration for the annual Columbus Drive-In that sells out fast. Read more.

    #9 ChamberMarketing
    Want to reach a B2B crowd at their fingertips? Make your company's message high profile on our home page, get a healthy advertising credit on our websites and market your product or service at one of our 100+ events. Read more.

    The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber is one of the largest chambers of commerce in the U.S., and our group-buying power helps us broker significant savings on your behalf. We hope you take advantage of these benefits and options in 2014 -- here's to your continued success!
