At first glance the list of forty-eight Chamber member benefits can seem daunting.  Even if you have identified what you want to accomplish, the how can be a bit confusing. Looking at the benefits in terms of what they provide for you, rather than how you will actually use them, may help in the process. Benefits can be grouped into four categories:

  • Advertising and Marketing
  • Membership Services
  • Events and Networking
  • Community Influence


The Billings Chamber understands that our members each have unique qualities and works to understand each member’s style and motivation, how each builds their business and how we can contribute to your success. Each membership journey must be customized and individualized. The Billings Chamber team wants to learn about each of our members and work to connect you to the benefits that make your membership experience more enjoyable and increase its effectiveness.


Things to consider are:

How often do you want our team to communicate with you?
What is the best way for you to receive information?
Do you have team members that are charged with attending programs and events?
What is the best method for building relationships?


It is best for you to create a future based on your unique motivations and needs, and work with the Chamber team to identify those benefits that best match your plan.
