president's letter

Dear Business Owner:


We asked our business owners if they believe their Chamber membership is worth joining. The majority said yes, however, they reminded us that attending events, volunteering and becoming involved increases exposure in the community. 


Your membership in the Hills Chamber offers you the exposure of both of our communities and includes a free business listing in our online membership directory where we will hyperlink your website and e-mail address. We also hold meetings during the year that enhance networking and give you the opportunity to not only meet your fellow business owners but also the opportunity to meet community leaders.


The Chamber is a volunteer organization. Our board members volunteer their time and expertise to help us better serve our member businesses. The Chamber appreciates your support. Our Annual membership in the Hills Chamber is $90.00 which remains one of the lowest, if not the lowest, cost for membership compared with other chambers. Your membership fees cover you from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019.


We are currently in the planning stages of our annual Business & Community Expo which will be held on Saturday, March 23, 9 am to 3 pm, at Conrady Jr. High (97th and Roberts Road, Hickory Hills). We are hoping to have many businesses participate in this successful event. This year’s Expo will combine local businesses with Crafters and Direct Sales Vendors (Avon, Tupperware, etc.). By doing this, last year’s event sold out fast and was well attended by the community. We have acquired both gyms at Conrady Jr. High which will allow us to offer more spaces. We have also secured other agencies such as Secretary of State Mobile Unit, PLOWS, ComEd, CUB, etc., who will have informational spaces set up. In addition, we will have the Windy City Thunderbolts Mascot and are in the process of adding a “Touch a Truck” event for the children! This is a big event for The Hills Chamber and we sincerely hope you will consider joining us!


Together, we can make a difference. We welcome your membership and look forward to working with you to ensure the success and prosperity of our local communities. If you have questions, or require further assistance, please do not hesitate contacting us at (708) 233-6860. We will return your calls promptly.

You can also visit our updated and new website at www.thehillschamber.org and you can follow and “Like” us on facebook at: www.facebook.com/thehillschamber. 


We are here to assist you and look forward to a prosperous 2019.


Respectfully,

 

Phyllis Majka, President
