"Membership in the Webster Chamber of Commerce has provided me with the opportunity to dialogue with business owners, learn, share, and have a common voice politically." - Dave Eckler, Weekend Printer
There are many, many benefits that come with your Chamber membership. Connecting to businesses and their employees, our website listing, referrals and the educational opportunities are just a few. Membership indicates you are committed to the Webster community and are interested in providing high-quality products and services to your customers and clients. Click here to view more membership benefits. We invite you to attend a Chamber event to witness firsthand the benefits of membership.
Prospective members are invited to attend one or two Chamber events at no charge – usually one Chamber breakfast and one Eat, Drink & Connect event to experience the opportunities of Chamber membership. Please contact the Chamber office to register for an event. We believe that as our guest, a couple of events should enable you to make a decision about Chamber membership.

The Webster Chamber of Commerce Inc. routinely takes (either directly or by a third-party) photos and videos of Chamber events or events at which the Chamber is present. These photos are used by the Chamber for advertising and promotion and may be included in media releases, on their website, and various social media platforms. Individuals photographed may or may not be individually identified. If you would prefer that a photo or video that includes you not be used or shields your identity, you may “opt-out” by signing the Photo Video Opt-Out form available at the Chamber office.
* Some Chamber events (such as the monthly breakfast) have an additional fee to cover event expenses for food, venue, speakers, etc.
** Business members that have been members for any portion of the last two fiscal years must pay full annual dues for the fiscal year in which they re-join or pay for the balance of the fiscal year at the prorated amount and prepay their dues for the following year at the current year rate.
