"As one of the newer small businesses in Skaneateles (September 2009), we have found the Chamber of Commerce, along with their extended relationships, not only to be welcoming, but supportive and great advocates for our business. The networking events, cross promotion and varied resources offered have positively influenced our business success. There is a great sense of community within Skaneateles and this is also reflected within the Chamber philosophy."

“Bijou has found involvement with the Chamber of Commerce to be absolutely great for networking. We spread information throughout all the members of the organization quickly with the ‘Skaneateles Skinny’ and the Chamber email. The gift certificate program is excellent, and has proven very beneficial to our salon. Bijou loves being involved in Dickens’, and appearing in the Chamber guide has brought us tons of visitors – summer, and year round. The ability to participate in other Chamber activities, such as Business After Hours and the Welcome Bags that the Chamber coordinates is great, too.”
Kim Baker, Owner
"From the concrete advantage of listings in the Chamber literature, to the broader value of co-operating with an active group of businesses and professionals for the benefit of our community, we have found our participation in the Chamber to be of great benefit over the years."

“The economic, environmental and cultural health of the local community is of paramount importance to us. The Chamber provides us with an opportunity to have an impact as well as to return to the community some of the good will we have received."
"Participation in the Chamber gives me a feeling that I'm helping create the business atmosphere in Skaneateles rather than just react to it."

“The Chamber provides the primary way that businesses can get together and discuss common problems and help further a sense of community among the many and diverse businesses here. The various committees allow for input to the rest of the community on issues like parking, access, visibility and commentary on community needs.”
