Benefits

Thank You for being a Chamber Member!! Your Annual Investment goes a long way.

A Voice to Market YOUR Business

 The following benefits are included in your annual membership fee & come at no additional charge.
Free Listings: Upon joining, we feature your business in our weekly Chambergram, on social media and on our website’s homepage as our newest member. Your business will also be listed on our website’s Membership Directory, which highlights Chamber businesses and also includes a link to your website. Our website, www.wbcchamber.com receives over 1 million hits per year.
Free TV Appearance: The Chamber has its own TV Show, Beaufort County News & Views. This is a 21 minute interview between members and the Chamber director. Your appearance as a member is FREE, which is a $2,000 advertising value for your business and more than pays for your annual membership! The show airs for 1 week in 3 counties: Beaufort, Pitt & Martin.
Ribbon Cuttings: Let us help you host a successful ribbon cutting to celebrate your grand opening, remodel, or anniversary! The Chamber will design the invitation, promote the event to our members, provide the ribbon and big scissors and take the photo. We will also handle the publicity after the event including a press release in the Washington Daily News, Chamber Newsletter & Chambergram.
Information Distribution: We send out a weekly email newsletter, The Chambergram, where you are encouraged to submit any information about your business (events, promotions, etc.), as often as you need. You can also provide printed materials about your business to be displayed in our lobby (which is also the Visitors Center). As many as 30 locals/tourists visit each day. Also, the Chamber only promotes its members! We makes hundreds of referrals through phone, email and our website each year.
Networking: Members are invited to attend an array of networking events including ribbon cuttings, Business After/During Hours, Power Luncheons, B2B and more. B2B is a monthly networking Business to Business event that gives members a platform to introduce their business to other members face to face. Member businesses can also choose to host an open house to promote products/services and raise awareness of their business’ presence.
Buy Local Campaign: The Chamber’s Buy Local Campaign is ongoing and community-wide. The largest piece of this campaign is the Buy Local Gift Certificate program designed to promote our businesses and ensure that more than $35,000 stays within our community each year. Only Chamber members can participate in this program. The campaign also holds the Buy, Eat, Be Local Week in July and participates in Small Business Saturday the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Other Opportunities:
Members can utilize our board room at no cost. The room is equipped with a screen and projector for your meeting needs.
The Chamber partners with Beaufort County Community College’s Small Business Center to provide free seminars and workshops for members.
The Chamber has several committees that assist in the Chamber’s mission including Education, Ambassadors and Young Professionals.


The following benefits come as opportunities that are only available through membership with the Washington-Beaufort County Chamber of Commerce but do incur additional costs.
