Membership increases your visibility in the community. You’ll be listed in our online member directory and on our Facebook page. Your handsome Chamber plaque is looked for and recognized by community members. You can grow your business by advertising with the Chamber and sponsoring Chamber/community events. We will even arrange and promote your grand opening, ribbon cutting, re-grand opening or after hours mixer for you.
Networking is available through a variety of opportunities such as general membership lunch meetings, board meetings, committees, civic events, other clubs and groups who are members, and in partnership with the CSD. All of these give you a chance to promote your product or service. The chamber also makes referrals ONLY to its own members.
Our Chamber is a little different than some others. For over half a century, there has been no City of Phelan. Until the advent of the voters in the 128 square-mile unincorporated area that is Phelan and Piñon Hills establishing a Community Services District (CSD) in 2008, residents depended on the Phelan Chamber and the Snowline Schools locally for a lot of amenities - and still do. The Chamber has sponsored such things in the past as Miss Phelan pageants and July 4th celebrations, including fireworks (co-sponsored with Kiwanis). Currently your Chamber still plans and sponsors annual scholarships for local graduating high school seniors; the Easter Egg Hunt the Saturday before Easter; A Safe Trick-or-Treat by merchants in our downtown shopping centers (the last two events with the help of Phelan Set Free/Servants For Christ); our "Angel Tree" holiday charity program supplying wrapped Christmas gifts for over 150 children in over 60 local families in need; and our community-wide celebration the second Saturday each September - Phelan Phamily Phun Day! Phelan Phun Day consists of the parade down Phelan Rd., the Champagne Classic Car Show, a street fair with vendors and a main stage with entertainment. All of this due to the hard work of volunteer members, our CEO and Board of Directors.
After being around for 53 years, the Chamber has the connections you may need to take advantage of local government, state associations and other Chambers to name just a few. Your Phelan Chamber of Commerce enjoys particularly close relationships with the Snowline Joint Unified School District and the Phelan Piñon Hills Community Services District.
