Working Hand in Hand

Sandy Area Chamber Bringing Businesses Together

Gaylen Webb

May 30, 2013

“This is another collaborative effort supported by the chamber, SLCC, the Zions Bank Business Resource Center and the Department of Workforce Services, he says. Much of the counseling services, as well as seminar and office space, are provided by SLCC at its Larry H. Miller Campus in Sandy.                                                                                                                                                                              

Ultimately, Parrish says the chamber wants businesses to feel they can grow in Sandy and the services provided by the chamber are designed to facilitate that growth. “I don’t know any other city where businesses can receive so many benefits and services at no cost. We are only as good as the people taking advantage of our programs and services.”   

Parrish hopes members will recognize the opportunities available to them and get involved. “It’s not about raising money for the chamber.” To area businesses he says: “We don’t just want your money, we want you.”

Membership

  • Paid membership in the chamber provides a significant number of benefits that should not be overlooked:
  • The opportunity to sit on chamber committees
  • Free listings on the chamber’s website
  • The opportunity to participate in strategic relationships
  • A free media package worth thousands of dollars, which includes free advertising with the Sandy Journal, free web page development, and advertising with local newspapers via chamber member, MediaOne of Utah.
  • Free sales training from the Business Performance Group, valued at $1,600.

“It definitely pays to join the Sandy Area Chamber as a dues-paying member. We offer a pretty good return on your $500 investment, Parrish says. “It is my philosophy that businesses should join the chamber because it is a prudent business decision, but also because our community will benefit—directly and indirectly. The distinction we make is that we are a chamber of commerce and not a chamber of events; we are all about helping the businesses in our community to grow and prosper.”
