Chamber of Commerce Offers Special Perks to new Members who Join in September

The Reading-North Reading Chamber of Commerce has deemed September as membership month. New members who join by September 30th will receive free newspaper advertising and the remainder of 2019 dues for free, along with a business introduction in their newsletter and in social media channels. New members also get a copy of printed business mailing labels of all member businesses. This limited-time promotion represents a value of over $400. 

Chamber President Francine Coughlin commented, “We offered a membership month last year and it was a huge success — we saw a more than triple our regular new member applications.”

The Chamber is very active locally and has 265 members, all of whom want to grow their businesses in region. Businesses do not need to be based in Reading or North Reading to be a part of the Chamber. The membership drive is geared to support businesses who have meaning to join or who are seeking visibility and new clients.

“There is something for everyone in our varied event calendar,” continued Coughlin. “For smaller businesses, we provide trainings locally on relevant topics such as How to Build a Facebook Ad andNetworking for Career Success. For larger companies, the Chamber serves as the liaison for the business with the local community and town government.”  

All members have their own listing in the Chamber’s online business directory, and the business listing alone has a direct boost on any search engine result (SEO). If you have been considering joining the Chamber, now is an ideal time. Businesses can apply at

The mission of the Reading-North Reading Chamber of Commerce is to foster a thriving business community that facilitates connections between businesses, engagement between businesses and residents, and long-term economic growth in our community.
