Read what some of our members have to say: 

“I called Michele this morning to help me with a big problem.  It all had to do with Paid Family Leave.  I called, two insurance companies and the New York State Paid Family Leave hotline – none of which gave me a clear answer.  The State PFL was willing to help and could get me an answer in 3-4 days – maybe.  The payroll had to be issued today.  I asked Michele to help and within less than a half hour, she got me a clear answer.

If we didn’t belong to the Chamber, I would have run out of options.  The Chamber is always willing to help – thanks Michele!!”

“As a small rehab and nursing facility, Alpine joined the Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce because we wanted to get even more involved with the community. Over the past year, we have gone to many functions with other local businesses in the area and have gotten to know so much more about them and what they have to offer.  Many businesses have also gotten the chance to learn more about what Alpine has to offer too! Joining the Chamber has increased our visibility in the community by sponsoring some of their events and also being able to host events at our facility as well. The Chamber has also brought networking to the next level for Alpine. There are both small and large events on a regular basis, allowing for the chance to meet new people and trade information in a relaxed, but professional setting. The Chamber is always sharing news for its members, which keeps us all in the loop about local upcoming promotions, events and news. I would personally recommend any local business in the Valley to join the Chamber because it’s very affordable and offers so many benefits!”

“I find it very beneficial to be a member of the Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce.  The networking opportunities allow me the chance to meet business representatives from many companies, especially those in the valley where I am not directly located.  It’s a great way to broaden my reach.  The advertising opportunities have also been a great value for my money.”
