Get Involved

Participate in the New Resident Welcome Bag Program:

The Derby Chamber of Commerce has witnessed firsthand the influx of families that are moving to Derby, from the high number of Welcome Bags that are personally given to each new resident. All new residents that move to Derby register with the Derby City Hall to have their water service set up.  After they have filled out the necessary paperwork, a Derby employee walks new residents down to the Derby Welcome Center where the Derby Chamber of Commerce presents a welcome bag (one per family).

Our standard price for maintaining Welcome bags is $110 for one year.  Each business is responsible for providing the promotional material (fliers, brochures, pens, cups, magnets etc.) and the Derby Chamber of Commerce will make sure that items are maintained and placed in Welcome Bags for one year.  During the summer months, 40 to 50 bags are given out each week with over 400 bags presented last year and the number continues to grow.

Join an Ambassador Team:

Our chamber ambassadors are the face of the chamber.  Ambassadors serve several functions: first, our ambassadors help welcome new members to the chamber by either talking to them at different chamber events or by attending ribbon cuttings.  Second, ambassadors help with recruitment of new members by casual conversation or through direct contact with other business owners and managers.  This networking is vital to the recruitment of chamber members.  Being a chamber ambassador is also good for your business because it gets your name out into the business community and creates a unique opportunity for you to talk about your business.
