"Chamber membership pays for itself. At a Business After Hours, I met a new client who had an immediate need to have a press release written and distributed. She hired me on the spot, I did the job right away, and got paid for my efforts. Being an active chamber member helps boost your business!"

Joanie Sirefman - Aflac
"As a new Aflac agent I was dropping in on local businesses and not making much headway, until I stopped in on a business I knew was part of the Chamber. When I mentioned the Chamber, and remarked that we never see her at any events, she promptly said, "OK - we'll talk to you". We scheduled an appt and I was able to "close" just a few weeks later. Being part of the Chamber always makes it easier when I'm calling a fellow member for the first time!"

"In addition to helping me find the right clients, my Chamber membership has connected me with the right people to hire on my team; one of my best employees is the son of a fellow member. The Chamber is also host to one of the most active young professional organizations I've ever known: The Hudson Valley Young Professionals. We get to network, participate in community services, and are guided by the best seasoned networkers in the business world."

"My membership with this chamber has strengthened my business connections and have turned many of them into real friendships and new business. Think of it as a reciprocal relationship that works yet you need to show up. Its networking at its best...its fun, and you have a greater opportunity to grow your business with people you know and trust."

Lou Giordano - Croton Auto Park
"As a local businessman and a long standing member of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, I cannot say enough about the benefits and rewards one receives from membership in this prestigious & relevant organization. You not only forge new relationships but strengthen existing ones with businesses in your market and the surrounding area while growing your own business. It also provides great exposure while reaping the rewards of knowing you are contributing to the growth and success of your community and a sense of civic satisfaction as well."

I have been a member of the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber for the past three years. In this short period of time my business has benefitted tremendously. By attending the monthly business breakfasts, I have had the opportunity to meet and network with a variety of local business owners, resulting in several growth opportunities for my company. The monthly lunch workshops have been extremely informative on a variety of subjects, all pertaining to maximizing business potential. I have found this Chamber to be a warm and inviting group of professionals offering a wide variety of business opportunities.
We are so supportive; we recently became Community Sponsors as a way of participating more fully. To all who make this Chamber great, a hearty thank you from Hudson Valley Graphic Design!

I have been a member of The Peekskill Gateway Chamber for a few years now. The group is dynamic, meeting often in different venues to showcase the talents and services of it's members. It's a great group headed up by the unstoppable Deb Milone. It is the place to be for businesses in the Hudson Valley.
Joe Adami, Member Since 2012
I have been a member for about 2 and half years and it has been a great experience. There are so many opportunities to network with other local business owners; breakfast meetings, lunch seminars, monthly after work networking, etc. I like this Chamber because of how supportive businesses are of each other. At every event I have attended I have heard people not only discuss their business but also refer other Chamber member’s services. There truly is an effort to help one another succeed. My business has benefited from my membership and belonging to the Chamber is an important part of my business plan.
