What Your Chamber Does for You

All up-to-date Trinity County Chamber of Commerce members benefit in the following ways:

Advocacy:  We are your liaison with county, state and federal government.  You have a voice, and an opportunity to get involved in chamber activities.  Your participation in monthly and annual meetings and committees keeps you up to date on community activities and concerns.

Referrals: We receive requests for information regarding our county, both online and by phone and mail.  We mail out packets of member brochures and Recreation Guides in response to these visitor requests.  Member business brochures and business cards can be displayed in kiosks throughout the county.

Visitor Friendly Website:  The Chamber hosts www.VisitTrinity.com, a recreation, tourism-oriented website.  Our website has been upgraded to be friendly to the newest technology now available to visitors.  Our members are listed on the appropriate pages for easy searching and viewing.  Links to members’ websites allow simple access to all your information available to potential customers.  Links are not available to non-members, so don’t let your membership expire!

Other Online Presence:  The Chamber website, www.trinitycounty.com, hosts a business directory of all member businesses, with links to their websites.  The Trinity County Chamber of Commerce Facebook Page emphasizes the reasons to visit Trinity County and includes postings from our members.

Visitor Kiosks Located Around the County:  The Chamber has installed visitor kiosks in outlying areas of the county.  The biggest kiosk is located at Holiday Market in Weaverville, and has been supplying a great number of visitors with members’ brochures. Other small kiosks are in Hayfork, at Strawhouse Resort, and in Mad River.

Information Resource:  Based on requests, the chamber sets up workshops to keep members up to date with current business practices and technology.  We can also provide members with the necessary information to stay current with local business related issues.

Chamber Advertising:  The Chamber advertises the county, its events and activities offered by local businesses, in various publications. The Chamber partners with other community organizations, i.e., Resource Conservation District, North Fork Grange, Weaverville Chamber, and the US Forest Service, to promote tourism and community events.

Relocation Packets:  The Chamber Office and Visitor Center receives a number of requests each year for relocation information.  Member information is provided to help people interested in moving to our county and in need of products and services.

Networking:  The Chamber hosts events and mixers to help inform, create contacts and renew friendships among members. Membership in the chamber enhances a business’s standing in the community and encourages community and customer trust. Our businesses are involved in their communities because they are an integral part of community development.

Promotional Assistance:  Upon request, we can help members with grand openings, ground breakings, and ribbon cuttings in association with the Trinity Journal.
