While many of the membership benefits in The Clay Chamber are intangible -- like contributing to a more prosperous, positive, and collaborative business climate -- we know business owners see their annual investment as an expense that requires a return.
Our most successful members are active members. Although we are here to promote and support you every step of the way, we are also here to guide you in getting involved to get the most out of your membership.
