TESTIMONY: Fairfield Hotel says why you should join your local chamber!
NOTE: The following is an excerpt from a Chamber feature on Fairfield Hotel in League City. For the full interview/article, click here.
The mission of the League City Regional Chamber of Commerce is to promote the League City area's economic growth through partnership between community, business and government. When one joins a chamber, there are many benefits to being a member, something Fairfield’s owners are very aware of. The hotel is one of the chamber’s five star members and joined earlier this year.
“We’ve been members through other businesses, so we know the value of being a part of this particular chamber,” Patel said. “When we joined as Fairfield Inn, the chamber was going through a transition period and felt it was the perfect time to join as a Five Star member. We continue to believe in the vision and leadership.”
When asked about what she feels is the greatest benefit to being a chamber member, Patel said the chamber “provides so many opportunities to network, meet other business owners, and gain knowledge.”
“It is an incredible outlet to build professional, and even personal, relationships, which is one of the best benefits,” Patel said. “If you want to make more business contacts, gain referrals, increase visibility, or become more active in the community you serve, then this is why you should join your local chamber of commerce. At the same time, you have to understand that what you put in is what you put out. Sure, you can pay your membership dues but the effort can’t stop there. When you show up and become engaged with your chamber, you’ll get more than a return on your investment.”
