As long as business is about relationships and as long as the strength of many united is stronger that the voice of one, then a Sycamore Chamber Membership is essential to your business success.
If you were to put a dollar figure on the publicity, referrals, business leads, political contacts, marketing services, economic development projects, research information, etc., it certainly makes your membership decision worth the investment.
Being able to network with other businesses in the community is very important and almost critical for the survival of most businesses – and a key mission of our chamber. Many people view the Sycamore Chamber as a place where businesses do business.

The Sycamore Chamber creates a strong, singular voice for the business community in a given area. The Chamber helps protect the interests of businesses, frequently acting like a watchdog of any political issues that might affect the business community. We tackle issues such as laws, including a no-smoking ban in restaurants, parking issues, and other issues from local town ordinances to tax issues.
The Chamber helps reduce your cost for doing business by tracking state and federal issues that affect your business through the Illinois and U.S. Chambers’ of Commerce.
We keep you informed through the Council Clipboard, an informal summary of city council agenda in advance of the meeting, and the Chamber Focus Newsletter.
