Test drive: Souhegan Chamber offers trial memberships.

The Souhegan Valley Chamber of Commerce is presenting area business owners with an opportunity to "test the waters" of membership in its organization.

"As our committee members talked with business owners in the community about the economic uncertainty, the biggest challenge they said they're facing appears to be looking for more opportunities to advertise," said May Balsama, the chamber's executive director. "In order to broaden out the base of networking opportunities and offer one of the lowest-cost advertising potentials, we created a trial membership. Business owners can come in and find out what's available at the chamber."

As a result, the chamber is offering trial five-month $55 memberships to interested businesses, Balsama said.

The trial memberships will only he offered through March to those that have never been members and those that have not been members for at least four years.

"Obviously, the emphasis is on new members, but this is also an opportunity for former members to find out about the new services we have," said Balsama.

Balsama said she felt the biggest benefits for those who join the chamber are the referral possibilities.

"They are mentioned every month in the directory as well as receive networking opportunities," she said. "There's also a certain credibility by being a member."
