"The Chamber has been amazing. I have met so many wonderful business owners and community leaders. My business has really thrived and I want to continue to grow with the community. I have helped several businesses so far and I have only been a member for three months and very impressed."
"The Evanston Chamber's attention and commitment to equity and diversity is to be admired. They are working hard to create better educated leadership and a more equitable business community."
"The Evanston Chamber of Commerce is an important part of my business marketing. It's all about the relationships built and showing up for each other. The relationships I've built through the Chamber aren't just to find clients but to find great resources to connect with my organizing clients when they ask "Do you know anyone who does ...?"
"The Evanston Chamber of Commerce works tirelessly for the Evanston business community, supporting revenue and growth while increasing our brand awareness. Through Chamber networking events, we made connections with countless organizations that would have taken months on our own. Through the Chamber's resources, it made our work so much easier to focus on running the business. People do business with people they know and trust. Thanks to the Chamber, I've built meaningful relationships and expanded my business in ways I never dreamt possible."
"The Evanston Chamber has been a wonderful way for us to connect to local businesses and customers in Evanston! We have formed so many valuable relationships. The Chamber offers so many engaging networking events and opportunities to grown your business. They have been especially helpful now during this challenging and uncertain time. I would highly recommend this Chamber to anyone who is looking to grow their business and attract new customers."
"I’ve been involved with the Chamber for the past few years, and the convenience and accessibility was immediate. The majority of my local business contacts have come directly from the Business After Hours events that I have consistently attended. The openness and accessibility continues today. Any questions I’ve had, support that I’ve needed, and connections I’ve needed to make, the Evanston Chamber has been my reliable go-to source. To hammer home my overall support from and for the Chamber, I shall use the oh-so-poetic words of Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel, “these go to eleven”. Thank You Evanston Chamber!"
"I have been a member for a bit over a year and I have been so impressed with the Chamber's level of events. I was further impressed that even during challenging times, they reached out to their members and began creating virtual gatherings. I can honestly say that I have enjoyed meeting other professionals at the events and have formed friendships during this past year. I look forward to growing friendships and business in upcoming years."
"The Chamber Team is always going above and beyond to help their members. They are very approachable, easy to work with and have great ideas! They can help with introductions, social media and general marketing!"
"Thanks to the Chamber for stepping up when everything else in my travel and event-planning world was shutting down around me! There was such a flood of negative information about COVID, the one site I found quite encouraging and useful was that of the Evanston Chamber of Commerce. The staff provided much needed information re: financial relief resources, a current listing of which restaurants were OPEN and which restaurants offered outdoor seating, and jumped right in to reach out to our membership and see how they were doing (i.e. watercooler series) to connect us all. I applaud the staff, and wanted to express my appreciation for being a positive resource among such uncertainty throughout this pandemic."
