Why should you join the Chamber?
Business Referral Services
We are often the first contact for visitors planning a trip to Cordova or their first stop upon arriving to town. We also get hundreds of online searches and calls each year from individuals checking to see if a business is a chamber member or looking for a business to fill their needs. We refer only chamber members.
Publicity & Exposure
Chamber members receive measurable exposure through our website in our business directory, hyperlinks, and display ads as well as through Chamber-generated print materials, social media, and cooperative advertising. We also offer Grand Opening, Re-Opening, Ribbon-Cutting, Anniversary, and Launch events to our members!
Signature Events Sponsorship
You can highlight your business by sponsoring signature events that are open to the entire community: Cordova Cleanup Day, Copper River Delta Shorebird Festival, the Old Time 4th of July Celebration, Cordova Fungus Festival, and the annual Hometown Holiday Kickoff & Tree Lighting all provide excellent exposure for your business or organization. You can even become an All-event sponsor (click here for more info).
