The study also showed joining the Chamber isn’t enough; consumers and other businesses must be aware of that Chamber affiliation. The positive impact of perceived Chamber membership is felt by big businesses too; when consumers believed that a restaurant chain was a member of the local Chamber they were 40 percent more likely to eat at the franchise in the future.
