FLX Chamber Member Benefits

The Finger Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce supports and represents our member Businesses and Organizations.
By introducing and telling your story, we increase the awareness of your business and its services and/or products both locally and regionally. As your advocate, we leverage our vast network by connecting our members with other local and regional organizations, as well as key business resources, and networking opportunities. Check out all of our Member Benefits below.

Member Only Referrals

Because we are a private Chamber, we only give out information for, and refer our customers and members when our office is contacted or visited with inquiries for area tourism or business information. This professional referral service is a reliable source of local and regional information that comes backed by the long-standing belief that if a business is a member of the Chamber of Commerce, they are trusted with a stamp of approval to work with. We answer countless calls each year that are tracked and sent to your business which you will see the value of for yourself when you receive a referral email from our team when your business is recommended or referenced.

Online Chamber Member Directory

All of our members and customers are listed on the FLX Chamber’s website under our featured Member Directory. This is visible and searchable for the public to access.

Featured Member News - Online

Let us tell your story! Chamber Members can submit any of their news, job openings, special events or other updates to share which will be rotated out and featured on links and posts within the Chamber’s new website on either the homepage or under the Member News links.

Additional promotions are also available under our Pay-To Play programs to have featured posts or events for a Members’ news or announcement remain for longer periods uninterrupted for further promotion.

Social Media Exposure

We help to simplify social media! The Chamber utilizes the power of Facebook and Instagram by posting on social media sites as one of the top ways in which it promotes, supports and advocates for its Members. Chamber Members can have custom content posts created by Chamber staff across our sites, or can request to have their own social media posts re-shared on our popular platforms to help increase awareness and engagement of your pages.

Additional promotions are also available under our Pay-To-Play programs to have featured posts or events for a Members’ news or announcements added for further promotions.

Chamber Connection and

‘The Chamber Connection’ and ‘Event News & Updates’ is the Chamber’s digital Monthly Newsletter and bi-Weekly E-Blast that gets sent out to our members and partners. Each goes to over 600 area business professionals and regional contacts which we have a VERY successful track record and open rate for- some of the highest in the industry (49%!) Members have the opportunity to be featured in each under our ‘Member News’ section where we encourage customers to submit news and events throughout the year to the Chamber Team to be featured and rotated. This is a free benefit as space allows.

Additional promotions are also available under our Pay-To-Play programs.

Member Milestone Celebrations

One of the ways that the FLX Chamber works to promote its Member Businesses and Organizations is by helping to celebrate their milestones and achievements. Whether it’s promoting an Anniversary, Relocation, or an Open House, Members can take advantage of the Chamber’s key media resources and connections by co-hosting a Member Milestone Celebration. These events have proven results to generate publicity and are one of the most popular programs that we offer. Our experienced professionals will work on a variety of promotional programs that will be posted across our platforms and gain media and news coverage before and after your event that result in an overall increased community awareness.

Please contact our office to see if you qualify for a Member Milestone Celebration. MMC events are subject to scheduling requests, availability, and staff approval.

Business After Hours Networking Mixers

Looking for that old fashioned networking style opportunity to meet once a month and get together? Our monthly Business After Hours (BAH) “Mixers” are held at various Member locations on the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 4-6 unless otherwise noted. They have become a strong resource for making contact with both current and prospective customers. The opportunity to host a BAH Mixer is exclusive to Chamber Members. BAH hosts are able to showcase their products and/or services through a personalized behind the-scenes style, open house event.
