Can Chambers of Commerce Stay Relevant for Small Business?

Posted on Wednesday, January 20, 2016

Alignable's CEO Eric Groves shares a point of view on the evolving role of Chambers of Commerce over on BizJournals.com.

For years, chambers of commerce have proven valuable for small businesses across the nation. They act as a collective lobbying voice for businesses, while enabling small business communities to seek and share advice, join events and network with peers.

But the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was founded more than one hundred years ago, long before the Internet and social networks changed the face of small business.

Today, one might question the necessity of the chambers, especially those that have not stayed relevant by adequately using the Internet or available social technologies.
