There are numerous benefits to gaining membership to your local Chambers of Commerce. They work to keep local business owners abreast of ever-evolving trends and developing issues within their community and marketplace. They offer businesses a seal of approval for trustworthiness and authority. For a roofing company this is especially beneficial in a world of fly-by-night roofers. Let’s take a look at some of the particulars that make these memberships such a crucial part of a company’s status, and why we at Lexington Blue® consider this an integral part of our business.
What is a Chamber of Commerce?
A Chamber of Commerce is an association, primarily of people in business, who’s purpose is essentially to promote the commercial interests of an area. They range from the local, state, and national levels, and join businesses together to improve their value, visibility, and credibility. They monitor business activities and reviews, and relay to their communities businesses’ reputability and reliability. In order to obtain membership, a business must register and pay dues.
Chamber of Commerce Membership Benefits and Credibility
For companies, the benefits of membership are quite substantial. It can offer a business leverage in marketing, discounts, advocacy, and networking. By joining a Chamber of Commerce you can gain discounts on many of your business needs such as insurance, office supplies, payroll services, and shipping costs, which in turn can save customers and clients expenses. One can also take advantage of the chambers’ voice in advocacy to the public. It can make for a resounding “YES” when seeking a service from a company who consistently maintains their membership status.
Another outstanding benefit to membership is the professional development that a company and its employees has access to. The opportunities to educate the staff, from the top on through the ranks, are crucial in maintaining relevant knowledge that can be applied to a company’s business strategy. Where there is no learning, there is no growth. Here at Lexington Blue® this is one of our HIGHEST priorities as our intention is consistent growth and improvement of service to our customers and clients.
Why Does Lexington Blue® Consider This Such a High Priority?
At Lexington Blue® we aim to raise the standard not only in the roofing industry, but in the realm of business in general.

In order for us to reach more people with this level of service we must enlist the aid of credible sources that can vouch for our high standard of services. That’s where the Chambers come in. They provide further proof to our community that we stand by our words with actions. We are a member of every Chamber within a 50 mile radius, which is far beyond what any other roofing contractor in the area offers.
