By taking pride in our community's rich history, the Alexandria Monroe Chamber of Commerce will create and develop a business friendly atmosphere for today's success and tomorrow's opportunities- Vision Statement of the Alexandria Monroe Chamber of Commerce
We are proud to say that this statement still holds true today. With another year drawing to a close, the Alexandria Monroe Chamber of Commerce would like to invite you to join us in this business alliance and help us to support and promote our fellow members.
The Alexandria Monroe Chamber of Commerce has become one of the “Fastest Growing Chambers in Indiana”. We had 26 new members in 2014, bringing us to 180 members. Our members are not just from Alexandria, but from all over Madison and Delaware Counties. We have established ourselves as a major player in the East Central Indiana area.
In today's age of the internet, the Chamber of Commerce can help you promote your business and/or organization in ways never thought of decades ago. Our data base of contacts can help you connect to the right people at the right time. With this and our ever growing following in social media we are increasing the community's and our partner's presence. We understand that with today's internet a business' range of commerce can be undefined. But keep in mind that they are still searching for you. And they are searching for your business through our Chamber website. In 2013, the Alexandria Monroe Chamber of Commerce had half a million hits on its website. This year we are averaging over 2000 (and ¾ of a million for 2014) visits daily looking for info on the community, events, and the many businesses of the area.
When it comes to government regulations and legislature that is important to our business partners, we stand up for their rights. We represent the 5000+ area employees working for the 458 area employers (Chamber members and non-members) to make sure their voices are heard. We are establishing opportunities for our community to be able to connect with our local, county, and state representatives.
We are driven to provide our members a sense of pride to be a part of our organization. The excitement is growing for 2015. We hope to do our best to provide you the opportunity to make your investment in the Alexandria Monroe Chamber of Commerce worthwhile. With that being said, this is why we have come up with our slogan..."Alexandria, We are Driven!"
