October 18 is celebrated as “Support Your Local Chamber of Commerce Day,” and we would like to encourage you to become involved with the Sedona Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Bureau.
At the Sedona Chamber, we focus on the success of our membership as critical economic contributors and civic leaders. We actively advocate for the interests of our members, promoting pro-business initiatives and addressing challenges faced by the community.
We believe in the success of local small businesses and sustainable tourism as we enjoy one of the world’s most inspiring natural settings, along with first-class accommodations and culinary options, incredible culture, world-renowned wellness offerings and abundant outdoor recreational opportunities.
Our team at the Sedona Chamber works hard to ensure the relationships with our members are solidified. We constantly seek new ways to enhance and support our businesses by creating value. Through experienced storytelling, digital marketing and monthly programs like our “Strategies for Success Workshops,” as well as generating other ideas to benefit our members, it is our goal to create a win-win opportunity that enhances business success.
Support from our business community is key and the feedback we receive from them is instrumental in developing programs that fit their needs.
We take our responsibility for convening and representing a broad business coalition inclusive of the Village of Oak Creek and other unincorporated areas like Oak Creek Canyon, and regional enterprises throughout the Verde Valley, in addition to our core city of Sedona-based partners. At the SCC&TB we are proud to serve more than 760 local business members.
We are fortunate to have the caliber of people who live and work in our community. Equally, we are committed to continuing to provide our members with advocacy, promotional opportunities, professional development, networking and more. We are grateful for the trust they place in us to serve and represent the vital businesses in our area.
Following are quotes directly from our partners:
• “I seriously LOVE these guys!!! The best Chamber of Commerce I’ve ever worked with. They truly do feel like a real partner! They make sure to get the word out about my business.”
• “We have been extremely successful with advertising our specials and packages on visitsedona.com and look forward to taking advantage of these programs throughout the year.”
• “The staff at the Sedona Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Bureau consistently go above and beyond to help their members succeed.”
It is comments such as these that make our job at the SCC&TB worthwhile.
Knowledge, communication and relationships encompass the basis of the SCC&TB. Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress and working together is success.
