We strongly believe that our members benefit from membership in the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce. We are Lincoln County’s only Chamber representing 700 of the region’s top businesses, industries, non profits and individuals.
49% of consumers are more likely to think favorable of a local business if it is a member of the local Chamber of Commerce according to a 2012 study conducted by the Schapiro Group.
Studies also show that consumers are 80% more likely to purchase goods or services from Chamber members because membership implies professionalism and commitment to our community. Our members enjoy a much higher exposure by being a part of this Chamber, and we have some old and brand new benefits that are available to you as a member.
Please take a look around our website which has 1,200 (and growing) unique visitors each month. Even if you are not able to attend networking or other events, your online listing alone makes your membership a wise investment.
