CenterState Chamber Alliance Expands Member Benefits to Cortland County
The Cortland County Chamber of Commerce is the latest addition to the CenterState Chamber Alliance, furthering the reach of the already broad regional business community. Cortland joins CenterState CEO and the Cayuga County and Greater Utica Chambers of Commerce in offering their members access to even more benefits and member-to-member connections.
This alliance allows the Cortland County Chamber of Commerce to expand its advocacy role by joining the collective voice of the CenterState Chamber Alliance. Cortland members also now have even greater opportunity to engage with other businesses across the alliance, which reaches from Auburn to Utica and Syracuse. This regional access encourages businesses to cross county lines and create a more robust economy. In turn, these enhanced member-to-member connections are instrumental as the CenterState Chamber Alliance advances the economic development strategy for the region.
“We are excited to welcome the Cortland County Chamber of Commerce as our newest partner in the CenterState Chamber Alliance,” said Jane Amico, vice president of chamber services at CenterState CEO. “This further strengthens the reach of our alliance, and broadens the benefits all of our members receive.”
The addition of the Cortland County Chamber of Commerce as a new alliance partner also enhances advocacy and creates greater visibility for members of the existing alliance partners. The alliance also facilitates greater collective buying power for all partner organizations through programs such as Member Advantage, which allows CenterState Chamber Alliance members the opportunity to save significantly on the day-to-day costs of running their business.
“As we look to expand the Cortland County Chamber of Commerce’s regional economic development focus, it makes sense to be part of an organization that can strengthen our members’ connections across the region,” said Bob Haight, executive director of the Cortland Chamber of Commerce. “Through this partnership, we have an amplified and more unified business advocacy voice, and can better position our members for future growth.”
