Member Testimonials

Unlike other Chambers of Commerce, the Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to promoting the Town of Irondequoit and chamber member businesses, through the creation of a truly inclusive environment. Our company has experienced growth which I can specifically attribute to the chamber and personally, I have developed a number of life long friendships.

Joining the Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce gave me an introduction to the local business community and an opportunity to build valuable relationships. Many of those relationships resulted in new business, and all of those relationships resulted in new friends. I could not have grown my business without the Chamber, and I feel much more a part of the Irondequoit community having joined the Chamber.

Being a member of the Irondequoit Chamber has been a huge benefit to us. The sessions that I've attended have been very informative and helped me to keep up to date with what's going on in the community and learn more about local businesses. The networking events have helped be to develop new contacts. Overall, being a member has helped me meet my goals of letting the community know what Seabreeze Amusement Park has to offer and to increase the number of groups that hold catered picnics here.

I am always the first to say, “Keep it local," because the fabric of our community is the small businesses, and the spirit of the Chamber is to support each other. I am a big believer in strength in numbers, and that there is power in everyone working together toward a common goal. That's why I'm a member of the Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce.

Sandra Holloway, Owner
Tasteful Connections Catering (Irondequoit, NY)

As a native Irondequoit resident and a business owner of three years, I am proud to be in my second year as a member of the Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber has provided me a multitude of opportunities to stay connected to the Irondequoit community. I have had the pleasure of hosting two After Hours Business Networking events at my business, SalonROC, where we have met new faces and gained new clients.The Chamber has also aided us in the promotion of our annual SalonROC Cut-A-Thon and continues to keep us up-to-date on what is happening in the community. I am grateful for the support that I have received as a business owner and I look forward to continuing to contribute to the growth of this wonderful town, as the owner of SalonROC and as a member of the Irondequoit Chamber of Commerce.

One of the biggest values as a member has been the business and personal relations developed. The Chamber's monthly meeting programs offer us the opportunity to leave having learned something new. I highly recommend membership to help grow your business locally.
