Today, I am thrilled to introduce you to a new initiative that the team and I are excited about here at the Chamber: the #iBELONG Initiative. We have launched this initiative with one goal: to connect you and your business with our vibrant community like never before. We want to see you and your business succeed here on the Central Coast – and community support from local businesses and residents is an essential part of making that happen.

That’s why, from now until the end of September, we’re offering Chamber Memberships for as little as $24 per month so you can join our thriving community. We’re a robust group of 720 members (and growing) representing over 2,160 local jobs. Our community is made up of business owners, entrepreneurs, and professionals, all working together to cultivate a stronger economy and a brighter future for Atascadero and beyond on the coast.

When you join our business community through the #iBELONG initiative, you will receive over $1,000 in advertising opportunities. These are tailor-made to give your business the visibility it deserves. For our new members who join in August, we are offering a free promotional video. It is a compelling way to tell your story, to show the world who you are and what you stand for. But we’re not stopping there; here are the additional benefits for businesses that join from now until the end of September.

  • One additional e-flyer: An ideal way to promote your services or special offers in our newsletter to our business community.
  • Additional category listing on our digital business directory: Making it easier for customers to find you.
  • A month of FREE membership: That’s right, 13 months for the price of 12.
  • A Google review: To boost your online presence and credibility.
  • Inclusion in the official 2024 Destination and Relocation Guide: An invaluable resource for newcomers seeking the best businesses in town.

Here at the Atascadero Chamber, we believe in active and engaged membership. We’re regularly looking for opportunities to connect and empower our business community through our Membership Mixers, Chamber councils, Sip & Shop events, Chamber programs, and more. We’re advocating for your business at the local, state, and national levels because your success is our community’s success. With the #iBELONG initiative, we’re taking our commitment to the next level.

So, why wait? Become a part of something bigger that will propel your business to new heights and connect with our incredible community. To become a Chamber Member today, call 805.466.2044 or email
