Member Benefits

Your membership investment yields dividends through opportunities such as our Member Discount Programs, which use group buying to achieve discounts on business products and services. These programs are specifically tailored to give small and medium businesses the quantity buying-power of large organizations.

Why offer Member Discount Programs?


The Chamber exists to ensure the success of our member businesses and, at the same time, return a dividend on membership investment. We use our resources to find the best products and services available. In many cases, our Member Discount Programs offer members a way to recoup the cost of their original investment in the Chamber.

What products are available through the Chamber?


From office supplies to recruitment advertising and shipping services, the Chamber researches products and services and provides enhanced quality and member discounts.

How can I take advantage of Member Discount Programs, including Chamber Group Insurance?


By becoming a paid member with the Chamber, you can participate in these programs, including Chamber Group Insurance Plan. Contact the Richmond Chamber of Commerce's Manager, Membership & Business Development, Dan Sakaki to learn more about each of these programs at dans@richmondchamber.ca
