Frequently Asked Questions: Hampton Road Chamber Membership Edition

We heard your questions and we have answers! Here are a few of the most frequently asked Chamber membership questions.


What are my membership benefits?

Aside from member-only pricing to all Chamber events and a complimentary annual subscription to Inside Business and CoVaBiz Magazine, your membership is so much more. With your membership, your company is not only listed in the Chamber’s online Membership Directory but also has access to post your job openings on the Job Search. Chamber members can also submit business updates and event flyers regularly to Member News as well as take advantage of Chamber Solutions discounts and the Member Discount Program. Contact your member representative to learn the many other perks of being a Hampton Roads Chamber member.


Who in my business can take advantage of membership benefits?

Everyone! Your membership isn’t just for your C-suite or owners. Make sure to spread the word that a chamber membership is for your entire business. We encourage you to tell your entire team about this perk and challenge them to attend one or more of our many events. There really is an event for everyone! Not only is this a great way to get involved, but it also shows the community that your business is loud and proud to be in business.


 In what ways can the Chamber connect me with other business professionals?

Not only does the Chamber put on over 100 events a year, but more than 20 of those events are at no cost to members and focus on networking. These events provide you with many opportunities to meet other business professionals here in Hampton Roads. Our B2B Expos are another great way to tell others about your business and to learn about other companies and nonprofits in the area. These events promote local business, encourage corporate networking, and allow companies to showcase new products and services at an affordable cost. The more chamber events that you attend, the more people you will meet!  


Is a Chamber membership suitable for my business or organization?

A Hampton Roads Chamber membership can help your business or nonprofit regardless of size. The Hampton Roads Chamber Signature Programs are great for businesses of all sizes and put you in the room with the region’s top leaders. The HRSHRM, Marketing Workshops, and other educational and professional development events are there to help small businesses with their specific needs.


Does the Chamber have referral incentives?

Absolutely! When a referred business or organization joins the Chamber, you will receive a $50 voucher. There is no limit to the number of referrals you can make!
