Member Support Services
Direct Member Referrals. We refer customer inquiries exclusively to Chamber members. Members also receive free listing in our annual business-to-business directory, which is distributed throughout the greater Concord area. On a daily basis the Chamber responds to calls and emails for visitor information and business referrals.
Business Advocacy. The Chamber participates in several local business advocacy groups and periodically meets with town officials to provide a voice on matters related to business issues within Concord. We support community fundraising events and planning activities to help sustain a vibrant business community.
Certificate of Origin. The Chamber provides members with the Certificate of Origin service. A Certificate of Origin (CO) is an important international trade document attesting that goods in a particular export shipment are wholly obtained, produced, manufactured or processed in a particular country.
Social Media Coverage. We provide a free customized business directory on the Chamber’s website with links to member sites enhancing search engine optimization (SEO) so as to track referrals and to help drive business to Chamber members.

In addition, we provide members with opportunities to work with local cable networks to highlight professional and operational activities.
Business Promotion. Through our Shop Locally campaign we remind people to shop, dine, and obtain professional services from Chamber members in Concord. In addition the Chamber sponsors the Gift of Concord certificate program, the Annual Dinner recognizing the Business Person of the Year, the Concord ArtWalk, West Concord Early Bird Shopping, and Sizzlin’ Summer Sidewalk Sales to promote local businesses.
Visitor Center Gateway. Our trained Visitor Center staff provides tours of Concord, distributes brochures for member locations, and directs visitors to member sites. Studies have demonstrated that tourism in Concord provides an economic benefit to the community and local businesses.
