Local businesses should consider joining their local Board of Trade as this is a great way to get your business name out there within the community.
A Board of Trade is a not-for-profit organization that serves to promote and support local business members. So what exactly does a Board of Trade do?
The Board of Trade offers networking and educational events, marketing and promotion opportunities as well as preferred savings and discount programs on everything from health, home and auto insurance to merchant processing fees, office supplies and more. They also act as public policy advocates and work with various levels of government to ensure the voices of their business members are being heard.
As they are non-profit, Board of Trade organizations depend on membership dues and corporate sponsorships. The Board of Directors are made up of volunteers who manage all Board of Trade activities.
