Everyone wants to Belong, whether it’s belonging to a service club, group of friends, or just a family, belonging is a sense of having a stake in something bigger than yourself. Belonging to the Chamber is like belonging to a family. We share common interest, like the economy, legislation and we even share the need to connect with others whom we belong with. A wise person once said, people do business with people they know. Well the Chamber has known that for years, and we’ve even built in a core practice that commits this organization in developing programs that hinge on connecting people with people so they can get to know one another.
Belonging from a community perspective is about uniting our voices, to ensure business can continue to be vibrant, so jobs can be created and kept, and prosperity can be generated for this and advanced generations. We’ve got a lot going for us in Cambridge, we have a fantastic location, we have a diverse economic structure and we have a Chamber of Commerce that is committed to growing our community in a manner that speaks to prosperity, health and safety. Belonging to the Chamber strengthens our voice and empowers the business community to keep our community progressive. We’ve a lot of work to do yet, that’s why we invite you to Belong, be part of our corporate family, get to know more like-minded entrepreneurs and help us build the community we all want.
We are not a chamber of yesterday. Instead, we are defining the chambers of tomorrow.
