Information about the Syracuse-Wawasee Chamber of Commerce
Our Mission is simple...
The purpose of the Chamber is to engage and advance businesses in order to enhance the community as an ideal place to live, work, shop and play.
We Believe in...
Supporting the success of local businesses and industry, the expansion of industrial, commercial and retail stores, legislative issues concerning local, state, national policies, quality education, tourism and conventions, community beautification and cultural and economic development.
We do this by...
Being the voice of the Business Community. As a member, your voice is our voice. Our voice represents over 200 businesses as we work with our elected representatives at all levels of Government; local, state and federal.
Promoting and Marketing Your Business
Getting the word out about your businesses is important. As a member, we do this for you. We are constantly referring our members and giving our business directory to residents and visitors.
Supporting Economic Development
From businesses looking to start, expand or relocate, we can help guide you through the process. We partner with Economic Development entities and serve on committees at the county level to represent Syracuse.
Fostering Network Opportunities
We know networking can be intimidating. We provide many different networking opportunities held year-round and at many different times to fit your schedule.
Offering Educational Resources
Many times business owners are masters at what they do but sometimes need help with other aspects of running a business. As a member, you receive e-mails and invites to seminars on topics that interest you.
Enhancing our Community
Through collaborative efforts the Chamber is helping maintain and preserve the quality of our lakes, supporting the building of trails and greenways, replacing light pole banners and welcome signage, as well as bringing new ideas on ways to continue to attract visitors and increase the quality of life for our residents.
When you become a member you not only receive great benefits, you provide great ones in return. Your membership ensures a strong local economy through Chamber efforts, provides support for the Chamber to be the advocate for business and community growth.
You can become involved in the Governance Committee, Finance Committee, Ambassador Committee, Events Committee, or the Board of Directors and steer the Chamber in successful directions that benefit all.
