Join for Your Business
Keep up with topics as wide-ranging as business property loans, payroll management, retirement, and health insurance at our quarterly business luncheons. Find out what you need to know before you launch at our “Starting a Business in Oakley” workshop.
The Oakley Chamber of Commerce will distribute your flyer or announcement to our email distribution list, so you can let your fellow chamber members know when you’ve won an award or have a special offer.
Bring your business cards, brochures and flyers to the Oakley Chamber of Commerce office on Main Street and we’ll put them on display for you.
Bring your business cards, a raffle prize, and a friend to the monthly Chamber Mixer. Host a mixer for a chance to showcase your business.
Ribbon Cutting & Groundbreaking Ceremonies
The Oakley Chamber can help you launch your business in style. We’ll be there with our shovels (or scissors) when you first break ground and when you hold your grand opening.
Monthly Conversations with the Mayor
Stay in tune with the latest city developments. Bring your inspirations and your concerns directly to Oakley’s mayor at a brown bag lunch the fourth Friday of every month. Host a lunch to increase your company’s exposure.

State of the Art Member Profile Web Pages
When you join the Oakley Chamber of Commerce, you get more than a one-line entry in a business directory. Starting in 2013, members of the Oakley Chamber get detailed business profile pages with plenty of room to introduce your key staff members and describe your products and services in detail.
Post a video introducing your regular customers, or include photos of your most recent event. Show people where else to find you on the Internet: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Yelp, Google+.
Tag your page with the type of business you operate and important keywords to make it easier for potential customers to find you.
Display your latest special offer right on your profile page as well as on the Deals page.
Any events you host, either for your own business or in association with the Chamber, will also appear on your profile page.
Everyone who visits your member profile and sees your events and photos will recognize immediately that you and your business are a valued part of the local community—and that Oakley has a business community worth belonging to.
You can update your member profile anytime using our online form.
This fantastic promotional opportunity is included with your membership. Visit the Member Directory for examples.

Join for the Social Life
Oakley’s chamber of commerce is not the largest in the Delta, but it’s one of the most active, with several events over the course of the year. If you attend the monthly mayor brown bag lunch and mixers, the ribbon cuttings and groundbreakings, you’ll be sure to enjoy yourself and know your fellow chamber members well by the end of the year. You’ll probably eat some tasty food and take home some pretty good raffle prizes, as well.
