Publicity & Exposure

Members are encouraged to put company-related materials on display in our office, thus giving their business exposure to residents and visitors stopping in. Additional ways for members to promote their products and services to the public include placing ads in the City of La Mesa Map produced by the Chamber, or buying our Chamber Members Mailing List to use for your targeted marketing plan. Sponsoring our events yields high visibility and advertising value – your name and/or logo will be prominently displayed throughout all media related to the event. Several events each year, such as our “Spring Fling” and “Summer Bash” Business Expos, provide additional opportunities for members to promote their business directly to the consumer.

Advertising & Marketing

The City of La Mesa Map allows members to be included in a great business resource for visitors and residents. The map is distributed by local businesses, the La Mesa Library, and City Hall. The map is the centerpiece of our relocation packets that are mailed to people wanting to move to La Mesa. Our members may also purchase a Member Mailing List to use for their targeted marketing plan.

Referrals

The Chamber receives numerous requests from visitors, newcomers, and residents for recommendations on goods and services in La Mesa. In response to these inquiries, we exclusively recommend our Chamber members.

Chamber Website & Business Directory

Membership includes a free personalized member page on our website’s Chamber Member Directory. Members can also post job openings, specials, and events on the Chamber Events calendar.

Networking

Create new, rewarding friendships and business relationships through ribbon cuttings, mixers hosted by members, breakfast meetings, fundraising activities and community events. Exchange business cards and ideas and get to know other members in a fun-filled and relaxed atmosphere.

Grand Openings & Ribbon-Cutting Ceremonies

Upon request, new and existing businesses receive a ribbon cutting for grand openings, ground-breaking ceremonies, or special anniversaries. Events receive publicity by local media as well as exposure via Chamber media: weekly email blasts, website, social media outlets, and more.

Communication

Weekly email blasts keep members updated on upcoming events, news, and information, including new laws, relevant to business owners and managers. Our blasts also highlight member events, Hot Deals, Member-To-Member discounts, sponsorships, and more. We will also remind and help keep businesses in compliance with mandatory State and Federal Labor Law posters and other compliance items through our OSHA Store at discount prices.

Special Events

Special events organized by the Chamber raise revenue to expand and improve services to our members. These events bring more business to our community, honor outstanding achievements of local heroes, and provide marketing opportunities for our members. Signature events hosted by the Chamber are: annual Salute to Local Heroes, “Spring Fling” and “Summer Bash” Business Expos, and the Taste of La Mesa.

Member Discounts

Members receive discounts from other members through the Member-To-Member Discount Program. Members who offer special services and discounts to other members find it a great way to generate business, let other Chamber Members know where they are, and build great relationships.

Business Advocacy

We are the “Voice of La Mesa Business” at City Hall, the State Capitol, the Federal level or wherever we are needed.

What Our Members Are Saying

Don't just take it from us, let our members do the talking!

As a member of the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce I wish to express my gratitude for the services they provide for the businesses in and around the La Mesa area.  The La Mesa Chamber improves commerce and community beyond my expectations.  I would recommend this chamber to any new business in the area not only for their networking services and benefits but their level of activity for their members and the community.  I can only say good things about the chamber directors and staff, Mary England and Masaleen Frank constantly go out of their way to provide the best services for their members.  They work diligently to improve my business as well as all of their members. I will continue to recommend my clients become members of the La Mesa Chamber.
