More Proof that Chamber Members are Great

Ian Scott on Tuesday, February 23, 2010 at 2:28:37 pm

Want another reason to brag on your chamber members?  ACCE has the ammo.

Results of the ACCE-Cortera study relased yesterday indicate that chamber-member companies have significantly better credit ratings than the average company has.

In the 10 chambers studied from 10 different states, involving more than 10,000 businesses, the credit reporting firm Cortera found the average credit rating for chamber members nationwide is 629 as compared with only 557 for businesses as a whole.  That is a significant difference.  The better and stronger companies in town tend to belong to the chamber.  

You may consider it obvious that chamber members are a cut above the rest, but people both inside and outside of your chamber may not realize it until they see or hear about the data.  I encourage you and your staff to spread the word.
