“WHAT DOES THE CHAMBER DO FOR ME?”  

This is a pertinent question and one the Chamber is obligated to answer and not with the usual stuff you find in Bylaws and general program definition. When you go to a supermarket you have something in hand when you pay your bill at the check out. When you pay your annual dues to the Chamber, it is understandable that you expect something in return so here are some.

The rewards of belonging to the San Dimas Chamber of Commerce are fulltime representation and year-round results. Businesses sometimes fail to recognize the fact that their local Chamber is also their salesman and watchdog. The Chamber unceasingly promotes local products and services while at the same time protects business interests. A single voice can go unheard, but the collective, united voice of the San Dimas Chamber of Commerce is effective and beneficial in making San Dimas the best place to work and live in Southern California.
