  • Top 10 Reasons Why To Join

    1. Be a part of a long standing, growing, and vibrant Chamber! The Kent Area Chamber of Commerce has been an instrumental part of the Kent community since 1910, and as a chamber of commerce, we foster a greater sense of the business community, advocate on behalf of all businesses, and help lead the effort to maintain a viable local economy by improving the business climate and assist local businesses. 
    2. Business Promotion!  Your business name and contact information is included on our online directory on the KACC website, providing your organization with more advertising. Many fellow chamber members will go directly to this membership directory when looking for business services, giving your company a competitive advantage.
    3. Networking!  Networking opportunities are plentiful in the KACC.  With breakfasts, luncheons, multi-chamber events, meet and greets, outings, and other networking events, businesses have an abundance of opportunities to meet new fellow business owners and representatives who can further your ambitions and form meaningful relationships.   
    4. Advertising Opportunities! Our e-weekly update and weekly e-blasts are distributed to over 1,000 people! Take advantage of this membership benefit, and reserve your space now! Businesses can also showcase their products and services through sponsorships. Ask about sponsoring a luncheon or special event or planning a Business After Hours event!
    5. Community Connections!  The KACC Women2Women Programming (new for 2023) & Multi-Chamber Events Networking, gives our members the opportunity to connect and network with members from our community and surrounding areas. The KACC was instrumental in connecting our local young professionals group - the Kent Jaycees - with a larger Multi-Chamber Young Professionals group to broaden their networking scope and establish new business relationships.
    6. Obtain Referrals! One of the primary functions of the KACC is to produce referrals amongst its members. Referrals are another form of free marketing where you give your business more opportunities to obtain new customers without additional advertising costs. 
    7. Savings! All members are eligible to save on workers’ compensation group ratings, Anthem/Blue Cross healthcare programs and disability insurance, utilities, office supplies, prescriptions, and more! 
    8. Communication! Our Calendar of Events featured on the KACC website, social media posts, and weekly email updates, including event information and all things happening in Kent, will keep you up to date and in the know.
    9. Recognition! Distinguish your business with KACC’s special recognitions every week where we spotlight a member business and at the Annual Tree City Awards Dinner held each November at the KSU Hotel & Conference Center. We also feature "women in business" during Women's History Month in March.
    10. Spread The Word! Provide information regarding events or announcements with your business to be included in the weekly e-update  – distributed to over 1,000 people and available online! Member businesses can also post current job opportunities available within their organization.
