"The day we joined the Chamber, we got a call from a prospective client who found our business listed in the Chamber's online business directory. The Builders Exchange of Tennessee subsequently became an important client for us. Hundreds of people use the online directory every day to find a specific service or product, which is why it's so important to be a Chamber member and be on that list!"
