“We love being part of the Greater Beverly Chamber of Commerce.  The events” and mixers are great, we love meeting new people.  The Chamber staff are efficient, friendly and helpful.  Not only do they answer our questions quickly, they refer other members to us all the time.  WE even do work for the Chamber.  Being a Chamber member is a win all the way around.  I recommend being a member to all my clients.  It’s the best advertising we do, and the biggest bang for your $.”

“Since joining the Chamber in 2009, I have seen a great increase in my business.  Not only has it helped in my sales, but I have met many other local professionals who I now network and do business with.  It is one of the best things I have done for my business.”

Josh Givens, Kernwood Building & Remodeling

“Although we are new to the Greater Beverly Chamber of Commerce, our experience with the Chamber Leadership and member base has revealed how important it is to the growth of our club.  We have always been committed to the local communities and through this organization we have the ability to strengthen and expand our community involvement for years to come.”

Pete Diffendal, Ferncroft Country Club

“I would like to write and thank ALL OF YOU for the amazing Business Expo last week at the North Shore Music Theatre.  I have attended many expos and the GBCC Business Expo is by far THE BEST hands down.  It was a great event, clearly well planned and I had FUN while connecting with dozens of area business leaders.  I am now aware of what a great chamber I have become involved in, and I am so very grateful.”

Laurie Pender-Sweetser, Kindrid

“Greater Beverly Chamber has made such a huge impact on our small business – we’ve been around for about 7 years and just recently relocated, and since joining the chamber we’ve met so many people through connections within the group!  They’ve helped us gain new catering clients and every day customers, and they’ve been extremely supportive in helping us get the word out of our move to the Cummings Center.  Best thing we ever did, becoming members of the Chamber of Commerce!”

Victoria Farnsworth, Marino’s Cafe

I have been a member for many years, and have met my biggest and   best clients through my association with the Chamber.  I got these   clients by “showing up” at as many events as possible, and always   presenting myself in a positive, professional manner.  I never expect to   get business from attending a single event, but the cumulative effect of  attending as many events as possible has been a large factor in the growth of my business over the years.  The Chamber has been a wonderful resource for me, and I encourage all members to attend as many events as possible.  It works.

After receiving a 20% increase in my Blue Cross plan, I contacted my current agent and as an independent contractor I was limited in what they   could offer to reduce my out of pocket costs.  John and Robin reminded   me of the Health plan options through the chamber – so I called. The process was extremely easy and effective.  The representative  from HSA was knowledgeable and responsive.  As a member of the larger   organization I was able to access group plans that I did not have access to   as an independent customer.  By reviewing the available plans I was able   to locate a high deductible option with comparable features to my current plan that was appropriate for my family that will reduce my fixed cost by close to $4,000/year. The key is access to more options – the plan I found existed already but I  could not access it without a larger group to affiliate with – now I have   that resource at no additional cost as a member of the chamber!
