Benefits of Being a Member
Our monthly meetings and events help to keep your business visible, allow you to connect with other business owners, and provide you with the latest information about what is going on in our community. Information from our meetings is also shared with our members via email and posted on our Facebook page to increase exposure.
Our newly updated website connects potential customers to you through an online Membership Listing. There is an easy search feature that customers can use to find your business.
Our Chamber office, located in the Thompson Community Center in Union, can be used by members for business meetings. Room reservations must be made in advance. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Our Chamber Kiosk is parked prominently on Common Road in Union during the warmer seasons, and travels to Chamber events, our members' events, and to the Union Fair in August. The Kiosk contains our posters for members' events, as well as members' brochures and business cards. Please email us if you would like us to pick up your brochures.
Revamping the map and guide is in the future, but for the time being, we will be placing a rack card in the Route 95 rest stops, and at our member affiliated chamber offices to help drive people to our website. We put out press releases for chamber sponsored events, such as Christmas in the Country, and the Fall Business Conference. We are posting member events on our Facebook page. Please “like” our page!

The UACOC hosts annual events to raise money for our Scholarship Fund.
