New dual membership opportunity with Anderson Area Chamber
The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber and the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce recently announced a new dual-membership agreement that will benefit members of both chambers and the region at large.
“This agreement represents regionalism, collaboration and partnership in action,” said John Bosse, vice president with the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. “Members of both chambers now have a better opportunity to engage with potential business partners and customers both locally and regionally. In short, this enables members of both chambers to better grow their business.”
As a result of the agreement, current members of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber that are headquartered in the Anderson Township area will automatically become members of the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce; current members of the Anderson Area Chamber will have the opportunity to join both chambers for one charge and receive benefits from both organizations.
Members of both chambers will have greater access to programs and events to learn better ways to do business, launch the company's next great idea and ultimately get a better return on the membership investment. Combined, both chambers hold approximately 220 programs and networking events each year.
“Business leaders must adapt to the fast-paced business environment and they expect their chambers to move as fast, creating new progressive partnerships that broaden the members’ ability to function regionally,” said Anne Zimmerman of Zimmerman & Co. CPA Inc., president of the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber currently has similar joint-member agreements with the Northeast Cincinnati Chamber of Commerce, African American Chamber of Commerce, Clermont Chamber of Commerce, Hamilton County Business Center, Cincinnati USA Hispanic Chamber and the Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce.
Historically, such agreements have led to increased collaboration between organizations.
