Why Should You Join The Chamber?
Because of the many reasons listed here and because it makes good, sound, business sense to support the organization that will do so much for so little money. Without your support many important services will not receive the attention they need.
It’s a Business Promoter
The Chamber of Commerce is the only organizer of promotions such as sidewalk sales, the shopping directory and the shopping map. Thousands of people visit Ligonier because of our events.
It’s a Tourist Promotion Center
Hundreds of tourists and prospective tourists write, telephone, email or visit our office for information about the Ligonier Valley’s attractions. Tourism is the Valley’s biggest industry.
It’s a Community Coordinator
The Chamber organizes and manages many programs such as Fort Ligonier Days, summer band concerts on the Diamond, Santa’s Arrival and Christmas Lighting for the Diamond, and much more.
It’s a Community Voice
The Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce acts as a “legislative watchdog” and frequently takes a stand on local, state and federal legislation (or lack thereof) on issues affecting all the people of the Valley. We work closely with the Town Council and Township Officials to improve the quality of life in the entire Ligonier Valley.
We are Behind Community Improvements
Beginning with the Fort Ligonier Memorial Foundation, the Chamber of Commerce has either started, or supported, most community projects for over sixty years, including the Ligonier Valley YMCA.
It Answers Your Mail and Phone Calls
The Chamber replies to thousands of inquires about your community, including questions from prospective tourists and people with new business ventures. We answer 10,00 phone calls a year from people requesting information. Nearly 2,500 information packets go out by mail each year.
