“Our membership allows us to support Herstreet ambassadors in their presentations at CCMM and also to expand our network of major partners. In 2017, these partnerships helped raise several thousand dollars for our relational health centre for homeless women.”
“I have been a member of the CCMM for over five years. The Chamber helped me to build a solid network of contacts in the metropolitan area. This network laid the foundation of my now-successful company thanks to sales resulting from effective networking. It’s not just the members who help my company grow, but also the CCMM team, by allowing me to do business in several countries. Their networking events are among the best I have attended, and their trade missions are a structured way to discover foreign business opportunities.”
“It’s an opportunity to have a large range of tools available to develop our company and its representatives.
The Business Clan activities, which are my favourite, get the word out about our company by means of networking and building relationships with members.
There’s an opportunity to start collaborating with other businesses and promote our company.
Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time to participate in everything that interests me since there are so many beneficial options to choose from.”
“As a new member, I wish to thank you for your major contribution to our business’s growth. H2O Communication is a communications agency specializing in branding and high-level web strategies. Thanks to you, we have been able to develop new relationships with clients who, until recently, were beyond our reach. We’re very proud of this. Regularly participating in your networking activities has allowed us to greatly increase our visibility and we’re very happy and satisfied with the results. The return on our investment in terms of membership fees was very fast and I believe we’re going to really appreciate the instructional workshops.
Keep up the excellent work.”
“After having participated in several networking events over the last two years, I can confidently say that those of the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal, of which I’ve been a member for nearly a year, are exceptional. This is primarily because of their excellent organization, but also the many members that make it a success. It’s the perfect place to develop business partnerships and, in my case, to help companies grow significantly on the Internet. I have participated in three highly dynamic Business Clan events during which it was a pleasure to discover new companies and present ours to a network of businesspeople.”
