As a new member of WSBA, you may be listed in the WSBA newsletter, e-newsletter, on Facebook and can have the opportunity to be highlighted in other chamber publications. You also can grow your business by advertising with WSBA and sponsoring events.

Membership brings credibility to your business

Make business contacts

The WSBA's fundamental mission is to generate more business activity for the community. The WSBA initiates more business-to-business commerce and more opportunities for networking and connecting local professionals than is available through most other local organizations.

Access to members-only discounts and services

Use various discount programs help save money. For example, a member-to member discount program where a WSBA member will receive complimentary business coaching from the other local business coaches which is a member of the WSBA. 

Acquire customer referrals

Every day, your local chamber receives calls from individuals and businesses looking for potential vendors, and chamber members typically recommend chamber members.

Receive WSBA newsletters

Newsletters provide new member information, interesting information about operating a local business, articles about the local community, a community calendar and details about up-and-coming WSBA events, among other things. But don't send more then 2-4 letters a week, it could be annoying.

If you still don’t think you have time to join and participate in WSBA, consider the following:

  • Most consumers think that being active in the WSBA is an effective business strategy overall. It’s for communicating to consumers that a company uses good business practices and communicating that their business is reputable.
  • If a company shows that it’s highly involved in WSBA (e.g., sits on the WSBA board), consumers are more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition.
  • When a consumer thinks that a company’s products stack up better against the competition because the company is highly involved in WSBA, it is because he or she infers that the company is trustworthy, involved in the community and is an industry leader.
