The Champaign County Chamber of Commerce is a member focused business association and we are the voice for business. Below are just a few testimonials from some of our members.


“From helping us conduct a focus group, to connecting us with potential partners and customers, the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce has been an invaluable resource for our company.”

-George Krueger & Mary-Lynn Foster, BIGG Success

“The Come Wine with Us event hosted by the Chamber is a benefit to our Wood Refinishing & Repair business. It is a great way to mingle with prospective customers, visit with business friends and also catch up with past customers.”

-Christina West, FIX-IT

“Great program with ‘Big Al’ [on September 12, 2013 – Chamber Breakfast Series]. I saw him last time the Chamber brought him here as well. Very enjoyable and informative! Thanks to you and your staff for all the great and essential work you all provide.”

-Paul Conforti, Minuteman Press

“Winning the 2012 Small Business of the Year award last year was such a pivotal moment in our career because not only was it an affirmation that we were doing the right things, in the right city, but it was really like that moment in ‘Saving Private Ryan’ where Tom Hanks' character says to Matt Damon's character ‘earn this.’ From the moment we were honored with this great award, we have been working extremely hard to ‘earn this’ and bring honor to the Chamber, our company and this amazing county.”

-Brett Hays, Shatterglass Studios

“We love hosting Business After Hours events as a way to invite the community into our facility and show them the face of true hospitality in Champaign-Urbana! BAHs are a great way for us to showcase our resources to business members whom might be interested in our meeting space, restaurant and bar or banquet areas for their next event! Our team loves the excuse to get creative and it is a GREAT way to network and meet new people and businesses in our area.”

-Dawn Van Buskirk, Hilton Garden Inn
