Di Ciaula explained that the main reason that members join the Chamber is because it helps businesses build relationships and increase brand exposure in the community. He added that the Chamber tries to create situations for businesses to thrive.
The Chamber provides a vital service by allowing for a way for business owners to work with the community and helping get their names in front of others.
“People buy from people,” Di Ciaula said. “It’s not going to happen without active relationships.”
The Chamber will host events from April 29 to May 4 as part of National Small Business Week.
On April 29, the Chamber will offer a Power Hour Breakfast, which will include tips to start the week off right such as stretching and cardio, at the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce Office from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., according to Marketing and Special Events Coordinator Johanna Kistner. On May 1, a marketing seminar will be held at the St. Charles Public Library from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The focus May 2 will be about boosting social engagement, with chamber members encouraged to share a fun fact about their businesses on social media. Cinco de Mayo arrives a bit early on May 3, when the Chamber will hold a salsa tasting mixer hosted by Metro Self Storage from 4:30 to 6 p.m. And on May 4, the Chamber will open its doors to the community by holding an open house from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
