Member Benefits

The Castroville Area Chamber of Commerce is working hard to support their members through advertising, marketing, social and educational opportunities!

Stay updated and involved in issues that affect your business and community through our many Mixers, Committees, Events and Luncheons.

Advertising Opportunities

Web Listing

With a Business Membership you get a listing on our website, www.castroville.com that will include a link to your business’ website.  Monthly reports are also sent to member businesses that receive 10 or more online referrals, which make it easier to track your success. Customers can access the website 24 hours a day to seek business information.  The website is rapidly growing and currently averages over 2,000 hits a month!

Castroville Visitor's Guide

Over 20,000 visitor guides are published and distributed every two years. Visitor guides are distributed to local businesses, hotels, and bed & breakfast establishments.  This is a favorite with tourists and newcomers to our community and only members get visibility to potential customers through listings in the guide’s business directory.  Advertising opportunities are available to Chamber Members at a discounted rate.

Membership Directory

Only members get exposure to potential customers through both alphabetical and categorical listings. Membership Directories are distributed annually to over 300 members.  Only Chamber Members are given the opportunity to advertise in the directory.

Marketing

Only members can display their business cards, brochures, and other promotional materials in the visitor center located in the Chamber office.  Membership information is dispersed through various communication channels such as visitor packets, relocation packets, and by walk-in requests.  In addition, the Chamber can help promote upcoming events for your business through the website, email blasts, Facebook and monthly newsletters.

Mixers

This is a popular socializing and networking event sponsored by a Chamber Member at their business. Monthly mixers are a great opportunity to meet other businesses and community members. Chamber Members are invited to attend or host these monthly mixers.

Committees

An invitation to participate in chamber committees offers members an opportunity to develop leadership skills by serving in vital leadership roles that affect the Castroville Area Community.  Serving on a committee can help build alternative network relationships with other businesses and community members.
