The Wilmington Chamber of Commerce membership decal brands your company with the long history, credibility and reputation of the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce.

Please download, print, sign and fax or mail this Usage Guidelines Agreement for the E-Decal Logo.

How does it work?

The program is voluntary. Discounts can be offered by Chamber members in good standing to other Chamber members and the member business’s employees. Simply fill out and return the form below and the Chamber will publicize the discounts to our nearly 1,000 members.

What types of discounts can be offered?

Any type of discount can be offered, such as a percentage off the purchase price. For instance, a 10% discount off the price of a car rental or 15% off color copies. Or a "freebie", such as a free dessert with a customer’s meal. Be creative and consider your target market.

What is the benefit?

First and foremost, bringing in customers and promoting your business, without the cost of advertising. Discounts will be advertised in Chamber publications and through the Chamber website. The program encourages Chamber members to do business with other Chamber members. It also provides Chamber members with an opportunity to offer their employees an additional benefit in the form of discounts at area businesses.

Lobbying Efforts

Local and state legislation affecting business is monitored and lobbied for/against by committees, task forces and Chamber staff. Your interests are being protected on such issues as transportation, the port, beaches, health care, the environment, insurance, and more. We also meet regularly with our state and local elected officials to provide our annual Legislative Agenda for Business, direct input from the business community on issues of importance. View the Chamber's 2016 Public Policy Agenda…

Community Improvement

The Chamber works to improve the quality of life in the region through its flagship program Cape Fear Future. The initiative is helping ensure the region has economic prosperity, higher-paying jobs, and the skilled workforce required by area businesses for decades to come.

Economic Development

The Chamber aids the economic growth of the community by attracting new residents and supporting the recruitment of new business.


Beginning with Member Briefings, where you are introduced to networking possibilities, the Chamber offers ways to make contacts with other members through socials, expos, conferences, committee meetings, and special events.


We receive thousands of requests each year for recommendations on goods and services in the Greater Wilmington area and we refer our members.

Marketing Your Business

Member businesses receive a listing in our online membership directories on the Chamber website and on the Chamber mobile app, plus announcements of new and renewing members are made in our weekly email newsletter. Numerous marketing opportunities are available through sponsorship of Chamber events, purchase of advertising space in Chamber publications, or through more creative methods like hosting a BizMix social networking event.


Business-to-business expos are conducted twice a year which allow members to market their products and services to other Chamber members and the community.

Training and Education

On average, the Chamber offers 8-10 free seminars on a wide range of business topics throughout the year, from marketing and healthcare to IT and a safe workplace.

A Membership That's Right For You

Because our members range from sole proprietors to global corporations, and have varying needs from their Chamber membership, we have developed a tiered membership structure that offers a wide range of possibilities.

Find your place in the business community.
