Build your business and your future by becoming a member of the Adirondacks Speculator Region Chamber of Commerce (ASRCC). Whether you are a new or long standing business or a civic minded individual, becoming a Chamber member is an investment in the economic growth and strength of our community, the other members and, most importantly, in your own business. By joining our strong alliance of business and community leaders, your membership allows you to become a part of a dynamic organization that is focused on making the Speculator Region a stronger center of commerce and, thereby, a richer environment in which to live and work, and a place you can be proud to call home.
The ASRCC strives to unite industry, education, retail, healthcare, church, city, history, service, tourism and county together in a cohesive unit for the betterment of our community. Together, we continue to make a difference in the Speculator Region.
Your membership earns the support of our small paid staff that works full-time for you and your fellow members. We rely on the financial support of our members to develop and complete projects and programs.
The following benefits are available to Chamber members:
Advertising and Sponsorship Opportunities
In addition to your free listing in our print and online directories, you can reach hundreds of potential customers through the Chamber’s newsletter insert program. Better yet, plan your own direct mail promotion using the Chamber’s mailing list. Advertising opportunities are also available on the Chamber’s Snowmobile Trail Map and throughout our website.
High visibility and advertising value is offered to members who sponsor a Chamber event. As an event sponsor, your name is prominently displayed and promoted. For more information on advertising and sponsorship opportunities, please contact the Chamber office at 518-548-4521 or by e-mail: email@example.com
The Chamber is your voice in governmental affairs and tracks local, regional, and federal issues that affect your business.
All members are welcome to display their marketing materials at the Chamber office. We will place your business cards, brochures and menus in the provided racks for the availability to visitors and residents alike. If you don’t have a brochure or menu, we’ll make one for you!
Through the many ASRCC activities and programs, you will meet potential customers and clients.
Calendar of Events
Updated weekly, this calendar offers broad advertising exposure for your event or function at no cost to you! Published by the Chamber office, it is included in every information request mailed out of our office and is for the taking at the Chamber office. It is also available on our website and shared with our local newspaper and Hamilton County Tourism for inclusion in their travel guides and event listings. Get your event dates to us so others may plan their happenings around yours!
Chamber Gift Certificates
Gift Certificates are sold by the Chamber at the Chamber office, and are redeemable only at participating Speculator Region Chamber member businesses. They can be used like cash, but are not redeemable as cash at any bank or business. A listing of participating merchants accompanies each gift certificate. If a certificate is used at your business, simply treat it as a cash transaction and then bring the certificate to the Chamber office for redemption at face value.
Chamber Gift Certificates provide a unique community-wide, multi-store gift certificate instead of the traditional one-store certificate. It also encourages people to shop locally instead of going out of town. In addition, the program provides an avenue where businesses and organizations can give away local certificates for attendance awards, safety awards, bonuses, birthdays, donated door prizes, and so on.
Our gift certificates have several benefits. They keep money circulating in our community; they promote our Chamber of Commerce businesses; they’re the perfect gift when you aren’t sure what to give someone; and most of all they’re one more reason to be a member of the Adirondacks Speculator Region Chamber of Commerce!
Members have a unique opportunity to advertise throughout the Chamber website. Have a customized ad created for your business or supply your own and have it placed on the top of one or more pages that best match the nature of your business.

Your enhanced business listing can include more information about your business, a detailed list of your services or offerings, a link to your e-mail and website, your logo and a photo.
