Meagan Devereaux, the Director of Business Development for the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, spoke to our members this month about the benefits of being a member of the Chamber.

Using several statistics, such as that over 100,000 people are visiting the websites of Chamber members having first visited the Chamber's Consumer Guide, Meagan discussed the value of being a member of the Chamber through promotion of your business through materials such as the Consumer Guide and the Chamber's referral program. Additionally, members have access to a Help Desk to assist in resolving issues with government agencies and other outlets and enjoy a "member to member" discount program that is available to themselves and their employees.

The Staten Island Chamber of Commerce is proud to also host a variety of community programs such as: a Veterans Discount program in conjunction with Assemblyman Cusick, the Young Entrepreneurs Program that allows high school students to design their own business\market their own product or service, and a program with NYC Small Business Services where they are currently collaborating on an initiative, " Chamber on the GO," which is aimed at SBS coming to business owners with their business support services.

Meagan also reminded the group that the Chamber is 120 years strong and, as a result, has an institutional memory and history on the issues important to local business owners and all Staten Islanders such as transportation, the environment, and economic development. The Chamber spends a good of their time lobbying on the issues of important to our community.
