Chamber Of Commerce
All of the members of CBBC are also members of the Council Bluffs Chamber of Commerce. It is our intention at CBBC to support those who support us. We believe that the work that the Chamber does to support the Council Bluffs community benefits small business owners, and it is for this reason that we choose to partner with them.
Though we partner with the Council Bluffs Chamber of Commerce, we are a separate organization with our own operating costs. Our dues are $200 per year. Since we are a 501(c)3, your dues may be tax deductible.
We offer industry exclusivity. That means that we have just one member for every industry. For example, we have one banker, and one real estate agent. We choose this model because we want to prevent confusion for our group members as to whom they should make a referral. We find this makes for a more cohesive group. In some cases, two businesses from the same industry are allowed in, as long as they do not directly compete with each other. This is discussed when a potential member applies for membership.
We would love for you to come and visit us on Monday mornings at 7:30 AM, at the Council Bluffs Chamber of Commerce. Visit, introduce yourself, and see if we might be a good fit. Please see our President or any of our officers after the meeting to fill out our Membership Form. Our Membership Committee will meet and decide whether or not to recommend your membership to the group. The group then votes, and you are notified of the results.
