Survey reveals what makes Gilbert businesses ‘tick’

Fifty-six percent of Gilbert Chamber of Commerce members state that their primary purpose for joining the organization is to connect with other businesses. Whether through networking, referrals or advertising, the prevailing need, according to chamber members, is to be aligned with other companies to build partnerships.

Another 47 percent of business members claim the need to be engaged in the community and the chamber as their impetus for joining. “These results directly refl ect the reasoning we hear from new members at our Welcome Reception each quarter,” comments JW Rayhons, the Gilbert

Chamber’s chairman of the board. “Businesses, whether large or small, are joining to link up with one another and make a difference in the community.” In response to these strong member statements, the chamber will roll out new programming this month to create more opportunities for members to connect and contribute to the community, according to Kathy Tilque, chamber president and CEO.

“Our members are embracing a referral culture,” states Tilque. “We introduced this concept last year with the help of Victoria Trafton through the Referral Network. Now, we are weaving it throughout all our events.”

A quick overview of the Chamber’s responsive programs includes hosting a benefi t for the Boys & Girls Club of Gilbert and a fundraiser for local high school students through the Scholars Golf Tournament. Evening networking events are converting to “Connecting for a Cause,” with each event featuring a local area nonprofi t.

“The chamber is member-based, member supported and member driven,” according to Rayhons. “We take member input seriously and want to be sure we are in tune with our businesses.”
