New Benefit of Membership: Chamber Partnership Gets Immediate Stamp of Approval


ASHI knows it’s delivering something the membership appreciates when over 300 of those who received an e-mail announcing ASHI’s new small business alliance immediately took advantage of the invitation to establish accounts with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

This 300 and many more quickly realized that the value of this newest ASHI membership benefit could be worth more than they pay in dues. Because maintaining membership in ASHI now means holding membership in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, those who responded to the invitation to establish online accounts gained the prestige of being associated with the world’s largest business federation, as well as access to substantial resources and programs, including the following:

Small business resources: The U.S. Chamber’s Small Business Center provides access to business tools and information, as well as a directory of local, state and federal elected officials. Whether you need a financial toolkit or want to view your representative’s voting record, this is where you’ll find it. Log in today and help your business grow.

uschamber.com Weekly: This e-newsletter, delivered weekly on Tuesdays, gives you exclusive access to current news, commentary, tips and tools, and legislative updates specific to your region.

uschamber.com magazine: This monthly publication keeps you alert and up to date on legislation that affects your business. Whether it’s taxes, energy or transportation, the magazine tells you what you need to know.

Discounts and services: Receive deep discounts from market leaders on a variety of services, from shipping to job postings. The U.S. Chamber and its partners help you save money and increase profits. Take advantage of these benefits now.

The U.S. Chamber fights for your interests every day...but we can’t do it alone. Your voice has power on Capitol Hill. On occasion, you will be asked to raise your voice on behalf of small businesses everywhere. View a list of our small business priority issues online and take action at VoteForBusiness.com.

The Chamber is looking forward to working with the ASHI membership to promote the spirit of enterprise across the country. As a token of its appreciation, U.S. Chamber Webstickers are available to the ASHI membership to place on their virtual storefront.

After creating an account with the Chamber, ASHI membership can view the U.S. Chamber Websticker gallery.
