Most people don’t realize that The Chamber is a nonprofit with the simple goal of helping our businesses and community. We appreciate your support and having you be part of the solution to a thriving economy.
1 It’s Good Marketing
We market through our new website, our weekly e-Newsletters, popular Facebook page and our growing Instagram account. We celebrate our members through our nationally distributed Guide and our Chamber Corner columns in the Wood River Weekly. We help create and pay for print, radio, television and online advertisements. And we do lots of old-school, person-to-person marketing, too.
2 You Get in the Guide
Each year we publish our award-winning Discover Hailey & the Wood River Valley Guide. Designed to look and read like a lifestyle magazine, our annual Guide is produced locally and helps visitors and folks interested in moving here learn about all our area has to offer. The Guide stars our Chamber members and gets sent all over the country as well as read thousands of times online.
3 It’s a Good Business Investment
Joining The Chamber is a tax-deductible business expense. That’s why being part of The Chamber of Hailey and the Wood River Valley and taking advantage of all we have to offer is one of the best marketing deals your business or nonprofit will ever find.
4 It gets you & your staff networking
One of the most rewarding things The Chamber does is to connect people. We help create relationships amongst fellow business and community members, especially at our two monthly events, Wake Up with The Chamber (on the second Tuesday morning) and our “BAHs” or Business After Hours (on the third Thursday evening). They are always free, open to the public and a fun way to make new connections, hear local news and catch up with familiar faces.
5 It‘s an Impactful Way to Support
Every time you support The Chamber or our members you are making a direct and positive impact on our community. You help thousands of local employees—your family, friends and neighbors—who work at Chamber businesses and nonprofits. You support lots of Chamber-backed events that make life here better, from the 5B Father’s Day Bash to bringing back the Hailey Days of the Old West Rodeo, from the Fourth of July fireworks to Trailing of the Sheep. We also help thousands of visitors at the Welcome Center in Hailey and answer phone calls about everything from snow and flooding issues to the best places to camp, ski, hike, shop, eat, drink and be merry.
