A primary benefit of membership is that we provide programs and opportunities, such as Business Showcases to meet those business representatives who need your products or services.
We stay informed on key issues affecting your business through contacts with federal and state legislator
agencies. We advocate on behalf of our community and foster relationships with key stakeholders to drive decisions that are favorable to the growth of the local business climate.
The Chamber receives daily inquiries on where to find products and services in our area. Our policy is to refer Chamber members first. We also encourage Chamber members to use other Chamber members for products/services.
Members are eligible for discounts offered on automobile and home ownership insurance. Chamber dues are also 90% tax deductible as a necessary business expense. As a member of the Ocilla-Irwin Chamber of Commerce you will receive complimentary membership in the Georgia Chamber of Commerce for as long as your business has 10 or fewer employees.
Through business showcases, program sponsorships and a certificate for an ad in the Ocilla Star, you receive direct exposure to almost 200 Chamber members. In addition, your business receives a full featured directory listing on our website that you can manage yourself and use as an SEO tool to boost your online visibility.
