NEW: Small Business Federation Member Benefits
Launching in January 2023, the Colorado Chamber’s Small Business Federation Membership allows Federation partners the opportunity to extend a complimentary membership in the Colorado Chamber to their private sector members with revenues of up to $1 million and with 10 employees or fewer. This partnership allows the Federation to expand its grassroots outreach while also providing a powerful benefit to the state’s smallest businesses. Small Business Federation members can take part in the largest grassroots network of businesses in the state and gain access to resources otherwise reserved for Colorado Chamber members, including events and educational programs at member rates.
All private sector members of Colorado Chamber Federation partners (local chambers) with revenues up to $1 million and 10 employees or fewer.
To engage more private sector employers in strengthening the Chamber Federation’s grassroots network, while providing additional benefit to those companies. While these members are not membership prospects for the Colorado Chamber, these additional benefits are intended to provide greater sales and retention opportunities for local chamber partners.
