Build one business at a time in the community

Vermont Business Magazine The Board of Directors of the Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce recently approved a new organization-wide membership development campaign, OVRCC 350, with a goal of reaching 350 members over the next two years. The chamber currently has around 300 members. Those interested can register online here: https://www.yourplaceinvermont.com/online-application/

This effort commits the entire Okemo Valley Chamber organization to retaining and recruiting new members, involving not only the Executive Director, Member Services Director, Membership Committee and Board of Directors, but also the entire OVRCC membership. This plan was developed with feedback from board and committee members and ongoing efforts by the organization. This work will begin immediately and will continue through Q4 2022, with additional campaigns planned for 2023.

Current Chamber members are encouraged to invite their existing suppliers, customers, partners, family and friends to become Okemo Valley Chamber members if they are not already members. You can also get them to join by inviting them to Chamber Mixer or a local coffee talk to learn more about the organization.

Benefits enjoyed by Chamber members include: co-op marketing/advertising, rebates from other members, savings on dental and vision insurance programs, discounted local Epic dealer passes, networking and advocacy, and special Chamber events. All employees of regular chamber member companies are also considered chamber members. Chamber member companies may offer some of these chamber member benefits to prospective employees as a competitive advantage in recruiting and retention.

The chamber has different membership categories: business (by number of employees), non-profit (organizations or municipalities), entrepreneurial (home based & farms), and Individually (for pensioners and second home owners). There is also an affordable one affiliate Category of membership when different companies are owned by the same person in different categories or in different locations.

To be considered for regular membership in the Okemo Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce, a business or organization must be professionally licensed or registered with the Vermont Secretary of State and/or have a Federal Taxpayer ID. The company or organization must support the Chamber, embody the spirit of the Chamber’s mission statement, and demonstrate a desire to promote and support the Chamber’s activities.

We are very grateful to all of our current members and welcome new members to join our association. With a goal of #350 members, we will be an even stronger chamber for the Okemo Valley region! For more information contact us at [email protected] or 802-228-5830.
