"When I decided to move my business to Murrieta the first thing I did before I even got back here was to join the Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber. The chamber is more than just a business advocate in the community…. they are like family. I highly recommend to anyone looking to grow their business or just “belong” to something more to join the Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber."
“I can’t even begin to articulate how much value the Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber of Commerce has added to me both personally and professionally. The connections, benefits and education have added to my business and life exponentially.
The growth of my business has been due, in large part, to the Chamber. The connections I have made at Mixers, lunches, and other events have either led to direct sales or to referrals. The Chamber is thoughtful and deliberate about creating opportunities for small to large businesses in our local committee grow. It does this through variety of measures, including programs, networking events, political advocacy, and even offers Labor Law Posters to businesses (for a fee of course). The Chamber keeps up to date with key legislative items that can impact businesses and relates this information in many ways. In addition, the Chamber also provides opportunity for professional development through programs throughout the year. The Chamber also has a strong local presence in our community.
In addition to the general events that I attend, the Chamber has also involved members in opportunities such as the Ambassador Program and the Board of Directors, both of which I am a proud member of. Through these programs, members hone new skills and learn how to involve and include others while having a great time.
Personally, the Chamber has also influenced my life greatly. The friends that I have developed in this atmosphere of acceptance are amazing. Every business owner has his/her down days. One meeting at the Chamber can certainly turn someone’s frown upside down. The staff and members are warm and welcoming and always offer a smile.
I would recommend the Chamber and cannot even come close to expressing how much I value the Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber of Commerce”

"I have been involved with the Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber of Commerce for over 10 years in one capacity or another. I sincerely hold my relationship with this Chamber as amongst the top reasons for the success of my business. However, I don't take a passive role in this relationship. I encourage all new members I meet to get as involved as their schedule will allow. It's because of my involvement that I have developed strong friendships, associations and mentors. I enjoy everything I do with the Chamber, from the networking opportunities, to celebrating ribbon cuttings, to meeting new people and making connections for them. My investment of time and money has been returned to me tenfold."

Our local Chamber of Commerce sets the stage for businesses to succeed. The staff is outgoing, friendly and ready with suggestions to help grow your business through opportunities and most importantly, connections.
I joined in June of 2017 and happily began to see my web design business grow. Granted, the chamber provides the venue with many networking events like lunch with friends, ribbon cuttings, learning activities, monthly mixers and so much more, but you the member has to participate to make it work.
It was through the Murrieta/Wildomar chamber that I met members of my core BNI networking group which supplies at least half of my referrals. This connection would not have been possible without the chamber.
It was also through this chamber that I met other local chambers and their members which is leading to additional opportunities to grow my business in this valley, and best of all, keeping me local and avoiding a long commute.
I was approached and asked to join the chamber ambassadors last year and I did not hesitate to say “yes” so that I can help promote this wonderful chamber and its staff to more businesses in our area. My only question to future business owners asking about joining the chamber is “Which event will I see you at first?”
