The Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce offers numerous benefits intended to help businesses grow and thrive. Below is a list of many benefits active members receive.
Marketing & Promotion
Send press releases to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will share your story, success and/or announcements. Use the Chamber for unique and inexpensive advertising opportunities, such as e-newsletters, sponsorships, our radio show, door prize donations, and so much more. The possibilities are endless and so is our creativity to work with you. We are your promotion partners and celebrate working with you to design something specific to your vision.
New members receive a free business card sized ad in the Glens Falls Business Journal and a radio promotional match offer with Regional Radio. Additionally, your business is displayed on the ARCC Directory which showcases members in their appropriate categories. Don’t forget, the option to drop off your business cards and brochures for display in our office is always available.

Business & Professional Development
Councils & Committees - Many of the programs and initiatives at the Chamber are headed by councils and committees comprised of Chamber members and staff.
ARCC Community Events - The Chamber community events are designed to build and enhance your network. The ARCC connects you with other members and community leaders. But don’t forget, it’s not about meeting people; it’s about forming relationships and rapports. Our events make this a seamless process that encourages these possibilities. Our programs, events, and committees make for wonderful opportunities to meet like-minded peers, share stories, and exchange contact info. Be sure to bring business cards! To learn more about our events, including available sponsorship opportunities, contact Tricia Rogers, ARCC Membership & Events Manager.
ARCC Job Bank - Through our online job posting platform, Job Bank, members are able to post all employment opportunities at no cost and with no word limit.
Leadership Adirondack - A program that teaches leadership and personal development skills while introducing participants to various business leaders in nine industry focused sectors. Support it, get involved and consider applying to be part of it. It is one of the best investments your business could make in future executives or owner/operators.
Certificate of Origin - In most cases, to ship goods internationally, businesses need a Certificate of Origin stamped by a local Chamber of Commerce. For members, the ARCC provides this service for FREE. For non-members the charge is $50 per stamp.
Health Insurance - Through our partnership with Upstate Agency Insurance, the Chamber is here to help our members navigate the complex maze of health and dental insurance.
