VISIBILITY

The HCVB provides a complimentary ribbon cutting to businesses who are new to the community. HCVB members receive advertising and sponsorship opportunities at our community events throughout the year. They are also featured on our newly-developed website, and are encouraged to bring business cards, brochures, etc. to the HCVB office, where their information is accessible to both residents and those who are visiting Hiawatha.

NETWORKING

We are firm believers in that it’s not just who you know, but who others know as well. Whether through education seminars, business mixers, or by participating in community events, the HCVB provides networking opportunities that assist our members in getting to know each other, as well as the products and services that are available locally. 

EDUCATION

The HCVB has access to resources that can provide members with the tools needed to conquer those everyday challenges. Whether you are struggling with bookkeeping, would like to know more about your Google business listing, or want to learn how to navigate social media, the Chamber can provide you with the tools you need to successfully navigate modern business practices.
