Business Member Feedback…FEEDBACK

“The Norwood Park Chamber of Commerce has given us the opportunity to establish a very strong presence in our community.  As longstanding members, we’ve grown and flourished within our business community with the partnerships we’ve established through the chamber.  Wonderful community events create a center stage for members to showcase their businesses throughout the year.  Membership with the chamber has been our vehicle to forge strong relationships with our peers and the community members we all serve.”

“I am a Norwood Park Chamber business partner and am grateful businesses have the opportunity to offer/share their services with the community.  I have helped many members with their home mortgage needs and I always look to support local business first.  I think the $100 annual membership dues are very fair and well worth it.  The newsletters are very much appreciated as well.  The chamber does an excellent job keeping our community well informed of local events, job opportunities and business offerings. “

“Since I’ve joined the Norwood Park Chamber, I’ve received 3x the amount back that I spent in dues, I receive ads on the newsletter, Bea has directed me to businesses that need my services.  Promotion of a neighborhood IS priority, and that’s her job, and she does it…Her advertising my business has helped me to gain two new clients in this month alone.Woody, 773.818.2684 leave msg.

“Thank you for the continuing support we receive from the Norwood Park Chamber of Commerce. It helps us in so many ways.
From the recent Fall Fest we raised over $450 from donations and the sale of cotton candy which was generously supplied for us by the Chamber. While we rely heavily on food donations, we also supplement our available items with purchases from the stocks of The Greater Chicago Food Depository. During the last quarter our costs for this food averaged 61 cents per pound. So with the amount raised at Fall Fest, we can purchase over 700 pounds of food for clients in need in the Norwood Park area.
In addition, we received excellent community exposure at Fall Fest. This ranged from community education of our services, to contacting new volunteers, to meeting a teacher who plans to put her class to work for us. A very rewarding day.
Last, thanks to your Board for our membership accommodation. It allows us to put more of our funds to work in the local community”.
