The Brentwood Chamber of Commerce is here to serve all businesses and support our community. We hope you renew your past membership or join us for the first time. Regardless of your status as a new member or a renewal, you will receive the following benefits:
Our Chamber Board of Directors is comprised of fellow business people who are just like you, representing a cross section of businesses operating in Brentwood. The Chamber wants to act as a voice representing the interests of area businesses.
Our Chamber holds informative and entertaining monthly meetings on a variety of topics. These meetings are normally held during lunch but sometimes happen before or after business hours. They also provide a great opportunity to network with other business owners and community leaders.
Membership also includes a weekly email newsletter loaded with information about what is happening in the community as well as highlights of various businesses. As a member you are invited to share updates about your business through the newsletter.
The Chamber's website, www.brentwoodmochamber.com, is a tremendous resource to keep business people connected to one another and keep members informed about our Chamber activities.

Once a month this free event gives you the opportunity to meet prospective customers before or after your work day. As a Chamber member, you can host one of these networking events at your business, usually held on the 2nd Thursday at 5:30 pm. This is a great way to spotlight your business to other members and visitors. There is no charge to be a host, you just provide refreshments for attendees. We promote these events at the monthly membership meeting, through email blasts to members and on social media.
The Chamber publishes an annual directory of businesses. Your business name will be seen all year long in the publication because all Chamber members are highlighted to stand apart from the non-member Brentwood businesses. This community directory is distributed to new residents, new businesses and new Chamber members, in addition to current residents and businesses. As a Chamber member you can advertise your business in the directory for a very competitive rate.
