Membership: Why Join?
Our members join the Hyde Park Chamber of Commerce for a wide variety of reasons. Here are just a few:
Broad exposure for your business. As a member, your business will be featured in the Chamber’s business directory, both online and in print. There are also special advertising opportunities available on the Chamber's website and in the annual print directory.
Valuable business resources. The Chamber often sponsors workshops on topics such as writing a business plan, reading financial statements, and running a real estate business. As a member, you’ll hear about these great events first—and you can attend free of charge.
Great connections. At monthly networking events, you’ll meet fellow professionals who have counsel to provide, solutions to offer, and wisdom to impart. Events often take place at member businesses—one recent event was hosted by the Robie House—and offer opportunities to meet potential employees, employers, even business partners.
A powerful advocate. The Chamber represents our local businesses, both within the community and to the City of Chicago. As a Chamber member, your voice will be heard.
And that’s just for starters. As a member, you’ll also get discounts on car rentals, free membership labels, and a lot more. We’d love to tell you more about the benefits of membership. Why not contact us or join today?
New Disability Rights Regulations in Public Accommodations
Effective July 1, 2017, the Chicago Commission on Human Relations (CCHR) Board of Commissioners approved updated disability rights regulations under the City's Chicago Human Rights Ordinance (CHRO). These newly revised regulations, are designed to improve citywide accessibility for all residents and visitors through added clarity to existing disability protections. These changes will, in turn, help businesses make their goods and services more accessible for people with all types of disabilities.
