FAQs – Membership

Why should I join CWCC?

For more than 25 years, CWCC has been a vital part of the Colorado business community. Our mission is to provide opportunities and visibility for both women and men in business through relationship development, education, mentorship, partnership and alliances.

Joining CWCC is an effective business strategy. A national survey* of 2,000 adults reveals that being active in a local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy because two-thirds of consumers believe that such companies use good business practices, are reputable, care about   their customers, and are involved in the community. If a company shows that it is highly involved in its local chamber (e.g., is a chamber board member), consumers are 10% more likely to think that its products stack up better against its competition.

* The study was conducted by The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based strategic consulting firm. It was commissioned by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE), in cooperation with the Western Association of Chamber Executives.


What’s the difference between CWCC and other chambers?

Our culture. CWCC is comprised primarily of professional women from different backgrounds who focus on how they can support and partner with one another.


How does joining CWCC help me as a small business owner?

More than half of CWCC members are small business owners. Small businesses represent the largest segment of our membership. The national study*indicates that chamber membership has consistent and powerful benefits for small business members. If respondents know that a small business is a member of its local chamber, the business enjoys:

  • 49% increase in its consumer favorability rating
  • 73% increase in consumer awareness
  • 68% increase in its local reputation
  • 80% increase in the likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future

Can men join CWCC?

Yes. CWCC has grown to be one of the largest women’s chambers in the country by being inclusive – men are not only members, but part of our leadership.
