Midstate & Hamden Chambers Celebrate the First Anniversary of the Nutmeg State Chamber Alliance
March 1, 2021Midstate & Hamden Chambers Celebrate the First Anniversary of the Nutmeg State Chamber Alliance.
The Midstate Chamber of Commerce and the Hamden Regional Chamber of Commerce are celebrating the first anniversary of their groundbreaking partnership, the Nutmeg State Chamber Alliance. "A year ago," said Hamden Regional Chamber President Nancy Dudchik, "a newly formed group representing both Chambers, formed a new concept in Connecticut, an alliance of chambers of commerce to enhance all of our activities, and offer new and greater opportunities to the members of their chambers."
With over 100 businesses joining the Alliance, this partnership is the first of its kind in Connecticut and has been a tremendous success. Both Chambers continue to operate individually, but through the Nutmeg Alliance, chamber members can join the other chamber at a reduced cost, thereby doubling their market. "With a combined 900+ membership our members increase their business visibility, and expand their market reach" said Rosanne Ford, President of the Midstate Chamber of Commerce. "Through this partnership, members can take advantage of special event rates for both Chambers, join other businesses in the Alliance's joint networking groups, promote themselves in a larger geographic area, and increase their political voice and influence."
While the Alliance kicked off in January just before the pandemic hit, 2020 Alliance activities sustained! A few include: Ladies' Golf Outing in July, combined committee meetings including Health & Wellness Council and Government Affairs Council; and the creation of a Nutmeg State Chamber Alliance Legislative Agenda. Planning continues for 2021 programming.
"We are very excited about the Nutmeg Alliance. As members, it gave us the opportunity to increase our exposure to a larger audience in several towns. Our experience this past year with the Nutmeg State Alliance has been very rewarding." Richard J Pendred, Ubeo Business Services.
The Chambers are offering an Anniversary Rate Special. Any member of either Chamber can join the other for just $125.
