The KV Chamber of Commerce offers many advantages to its members, in addition to exchanging ideas and information of a variety of issues. The goal of this program is to encourage reciprocal business opportunities between chamber members.
This is where KVCC Members offer a special incentive to their fellow members. For example, members are invited to to offer a discount, a free estimate, or a unique promotion.
This offer will be posted to the Member Benefits page and will be valid for a one year period (April 1st until March 31st). After that time, the business may choose to provide a new offer or continue with the same promotion.
It is through this program that the KV Chamber of Commerce would like to promote it motto "Shop the Valley"

Networking events provide a great opportunity to get to know new people and stay informed. These events provide a venue to meet potential and existing customers as well as other local entrepreneurs. There are numerous events scheduled throughout the year. In 2010 it was recommended by the Social and Activities Committee that the KV Chamber of Commerce host networking events a little differently than in the past. It was suggested that the KVCC hold networking events that have a business focus perhaps with a guest speaker; others will have a social flare- such as the Christmas Social and even host a "family oriented" event during the summer. The goal is to get KVCC members involved. These events will be posted in the Calendar of Events when they are finalized.
