A good number of phone calls come to the Chamber of Commerce office each day. These calls come from business people who want to relocate to Vidalia and people looking for the services you provide. As a Chamber member, your business gets top priority on our referral list. Bring your brochures, rack cards or business cards to the Chamber office to hand out to folks who drop in to ask questions.

There are a number of benefits to being a member of the Vidalia Chamber of Commerce. Most of them deal directly with your business. From information to networking and referrals, the Chamber is there to help you.
Besides the above mentioned programs, our meetings are a great time to do some networking. Who's your competition? Who among our membership can provide a service that helps you do business?
The Vidalia Chamber meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month at Comfort Suites on the Vidalia RiverFront. Meetings are at Noon. Lunch is $10.
The speakers at our monthly meetings offer you insight on local and state politics, the laws that affect your business, business programs geared to helping you marketing your business, and other important subjects.
Networking is an important and often under-rated tool in promoting your business. Your Chamber of Commerce offers a multitude of chances to do just that.
Our monthly meetings are the best example of networking. A featured speaker offers business information you can use, usually with time for a Question/Answer session and a chance to discuss topics with other members.
Chamber After Hours gives you the chance to have more relaxed conversations with potential customers and business owners who can provide you with a service. That conversation is often more welcomed than a formal "sales pitch." Be sure to bring along plenty of business cards.
You'll find networking done at other Chamber events, like Ribbon Cuttings, our Golf Scramble, committee meetings, etc.
Ribbon Cuttings, Grand Openings, Anniversaries
The Chamber helps you celebrate your milestones. Not only that, but having the Chamber help you celebrate means photos and articles in the local paper and having our office announce your upcoming event at meetings and in emails to all our members.
