Why non-profits should join the Ferndale Chamber
“I would encourage not only all non-profits, but I would encourage small businesses, medium businesses and big ol’ businesses to get on board with the Chamber. It’s a great group of people and the level of professionalism is really demonstrated week in and week out and we’re just so grateful to be a part of it.”
~Suzanne Nevan, Ferndale Food Bank
Why new businesses should join the Ferndale Chamber
“The Chamber, their goal is to make us successful. They want us to be profitable, they want us to continue to drive our sales and they don’t give up.”
~Larry Brown, Ferndale Grocery Outlet
What our members are saying…
“If you’re looking for ways to extend the benefits of your Ferndale Chamber membership, I recommend attending Business Unplugged, a free after hours networking event that takes place every other month.
Earlier this year I attended this event for the first time, where I was able to meet and socialize with Hayden from LeMaster Graphics. Following our meeting at Business Unplugged, Hayden and I met over coffee to discuss ways in which his company’s services can improve our website and increase traffic. As a result, we now have a website that I’m proud, and we’ve already seen increased sessions, page views, and average time on page.
The increased networking opportunities that I’ve had through our Chamber membership have already proved to be valuable, and I’m looking forward to continued success through these functions.”
~Curtis Anson, Premier Dental Center
“I joined the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce barely two weeks ago, right before the April luncheon and I have already seen the return on investment. I received a phone call from a local chiropractic and massage clinic almost immediately, asking if we could get together to talk about a potential partnership. Not only that, but the massage practitioner himself also attended one of our classes already! I am so excited to partner with the Chamber, and highly encourage anyone else looking for more support and visibility in our local community to get involved. They are very proactive in helping get you going on the community. We have already scheduled our grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony with the Mayor even! I am looking forward to continuing this fruitful engagement with the Ferndale Chamber. If you are a new business, or just looking to reengage your local community, definitely reach out to the team right away.”
~Ellie Margulies, Flex Movement Lab

“The Chamber has helped my business by creating awareness for my brand and allowing me and my company to rise to the forefront of Ferndale’s collective
conscience. We are involved throughout the year. The bottom line is, we have gained new clients through our association with the Ferndale Chamber of Commerce.”

“As Branch Manager of the Ferndale Public Library, my participation in the Chamber is representing the Friends of the Ferndale Library. As a non-profit organization, Friends group has limited funds and the Chamber has greatly helped raise awareness of both our Building Project and what role the Ferndale Public Library plays in the Ferndale community.
I firmly believe my involvement in the Chamber has increased library use and boosted the Ferndale Public Library’s image in the Ferndale community.”
~Sarah Koehler, Friends of the Ferndale Library
