Your business membership in the Chamber comes with a listing in the Island Map & Guide* and the opportunity for enhanced advertisements.

Website Exposure – The Chamber’s website is the place where more and more people start to look for services, shops, dining, arts and artisans, and accommodations on the Island. Over the last year, 35,000 peop0le visited the site, looking at 107,000 pages of business listings and events. The Chamber’s website offers unparalleled visibility for your business to people looking for information about the Island.
