What Our Members Are Saying…

Diane DeVries

“The Joliet Chamber was one of the first groups I joined 24 years ago when I started my sales job with the local radio stations. I knew no one, and the chamber staff and members were welcoming and helpful from day one. Since then, the chamber has been absolutely essential in building my business, building my relationships, and building friendships. From networking events, to golf outings, dinners, festivals and galas, the Joliet Chamber brings successful people together to support not only the business community, but the everyday life of the area residents. Thank you for everything you do!”

“I wanted to pass along a “Thank You” to the staff at the chamber of commerce for a call we received at our office today.

An elderly gentleman from the Joliet area reached out to the Joliet chamber office needing to find help with some shredding services. The staff was kind enough to provide him with our company name and telephone number. As is our normal practice, when finishing up with his phone call, I asked him how he had learned of our company and he explained that he was given our name and number by the folks at the Joliet Chamber of Commerce.

As we all know, in today’s tight economy, there is never a customer too small that cannot be helped. I was truly pleased to learn that a simple phone call to the Joliet Chamber of Commerce will result in business for Shark Shredding, Inc.

Please pass along to your staff at the chamber a Thank You from me and our team here at Shark Shredding, Inc. that it wasn’t Google, Yellowbook, Dex, Bing or any other modern tech devise that led this client to our doorstep, just good old fashioned chamber members helping chamber members.

Thank you for the support of your membership!”

“I appreciate the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce for many reasons. After 20 years of working with various chambers, Joliet has become my favorite because of the consistent focus on meaningfully supporting the business and general community without favoritism and leadership that results in efficient teamwork of the staff and volunteers. In an analysis I did last year of my business in Will County, approximately 50% of my business had a direct connection to my relationship with your Chamber.

Thank you and all the team for your great attitude in this challenging economy, the Joliet Chamber is my pick for my most valuable chamber relationship.”

“The Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce exemplifies its mission to advance the interests of business, professional and service organizations in the area. As Will County Executive, former Illinois State Senator and as a lifetime resident of the area, I have seen and experienced first-hand the fantastic success this organization has experienced – and brings to others.

Through a team of top notch professionals, the Joliet Region Chamber goes above and beyond the call to bring the community interesting and informative programs, wonderful networking opportunities and excellent tools to advance business and communication. From its Community Leadership School, to its business luncheons and dinners, to its Business after Hours, to its renowned recognition events, the Joliet Region Chamber is a model of excellence. I can honestly say that as a chamber member and participant, I am very proud to be a part of this impressive team and organization.”
