"The Park Ridge Wine Walk was a HUGE success! The best part was that we actually went into places that we had never been before and can't wait to go into again to shop and eat! What a GREAT day."
"The Chamber has been very supportive of my photography business by giving me a lot of marketing exposure and leads. Through networking at various Chamber events, I've made many contacts which help keep my business growing. I'm glad I'm a member of the Park Ridge Chamber and would recommend every business in Park Ridge join the Chamber!"
One of the most useful benefits of being a Chamber member for me is networking with other small business owners. We have shared ideas on marketing, sales, events, and social media - it sure helps to learn from each other's experiences.
"I always tell people that being a chamber member is like having your own personal Angie's List. When I have a need, I can count on Park Ridge Chamber members to provide excellent service. Here's an example. Dr. Jennifer Hunsader at Lossman Eye Care is my optometrist. She's absolutely wonderful. How did I meet Dr. Hunsader? At a Chamber Women in Business meeting! She was introduced to me by another chamber member who also uses her services! What better referral is there? And this is not the only chamber member who provides great service to me. I have my cars serviced by Nelson Automotive, my insurance through Dave Donovan at Coyne Insurance and Paul Levine at DeCarl, Levine and Friedman, my kitchen was remodeled by Borgic Remodeling....... the list goes on and on. So when you think of the benefits of chamber membership, don’t just think about selling your services, think of all the great service you can receive from your fellow chamber members!"
"I am a new member of the Park Ridge Chamber of Commerce and I am very impressed with the organization. Each event that I have attended has been exceptional. I only wish that I had joined years ago!"
"I am a brand new member who joined the PRCC first thing after setting up my new business. Constant Market Analysis is a critical element to my consulting services - at the Chamber I can listen to many perspectives without taking up too much of anyone's time.
As a long time Park Ridge resident I also enjoy seeing my friends and meeting new ones. It's fun and informative to go to the presentations! I look forward to many, many years of membership and hope to have a leadership role in the future."

"Thank you so very much for celebrating our 45th year in business in Park Ridge. We appreciate all that you have done for us. We also appreciate all your efforts in making the Park Ridge Chamber such outstanding and worthwhile organization."
"The Multi-Chamber Networking at the Chicago Bandits Pro Softball Game was fun! It was a great location and I liked how the area was exclusive from the rest of the spectators. We met some great people and had great conversations."
"My main Chamber activity has been regular attendance at the monthly networking luncheons. Besides finding the speakers informative, I enjoy meeting other Chamber members and learning about their particular job responsibilities and services they are providing. The introductions at these luncheons also give me an opportunity to invite the attendees to stop in at the Christian Science Reading Room at 13 N. Prospect, just a few stores north of Six Corners, for some quality quiet time during their busy days. The Reading Room is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm. I also bring with me about a half dozen recent copies of the Christian Science Monitor, a weekly Pulitzer Prize-winning international magazine, for anyone to take with them at the end of the luncheon. This enables me to provide to many who may not be aware of the quality and scope of articles in the magazine a periodical they would not otherwise read. I am also the President Emeritus of the Park Ridge Cultural Arts Council, which is also a Chamber member. As a Chamber member who appreciates the many services provided by the Chamber to its members, I will often make a special effort when dining at new restaurants in Park Ridge, to meet the owner and encourage them to join the Chamber, pointing out some of the benefits of doing so."
