Chamber membership is an investment in your business and as individuals in the community where you do business. The Van Area Chamber of Commerce offers several opportunities throughout the year for you or your business to be involved. Members build a better life for their communities through involvement and dedication.
Customer Referrals – Volunteers are available every week day – 1 PM – 4 PM – to take any phone calls or walk ins at the Chamber office at 170 West Main. The volunteers are able to refer and recommend our member’s businesses.
Chamber Publications – The Chamber publishes and distributes a number of in-house publications to keep the community informed regarding activities and events in our area.
The Internet as a Business Resource – The Chamber maintains a searchable listing of its members on the www.vantx.com website. The website is used to email upcoming activities and events to the community and maintains a community calendar of events to keep all informed. There is also a Van Chamber Facebook page. If you haven’t ‘liked’ us as yet, please do so. This is a great way to obtain information regarding events that are happening in your community and your chance to participate.
New Businesses in Town – The Chamber will be happy to do a Ribbon Cutting for any new businesses to help the community know the news. We have two coming up in March and April.
Volunteers – The Chamber is dependent upon volunteer support for its success. That support is manifested in two ways – time and money. Volunteer your time or your investment. Either will show a sense of pride and personal satisfaction in the achievement of goals set for the Chamber in making the Van Area a better place to live and do business.
