If your business has a web site, it can be linked to the Chamber web site. Members are listed alphabetically and categorically. Community focused events can be placed on the calendar of events along with city and local happenings. Platinum members receive banner advertising for three months as well as key word search opportunities.

Business Referral Service
Current Chamber members are referred to callers and visitors requesting names of local businesses or professionals that provide a particular product or service.

Business and Political Contacts
The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce provides its membership various opportunities to network with fellow members and establish business and political contacts. Chamber members are kept abreast of state and local legislative issues that affect local business. Members ultimately become part of a “customer referral service” for future business activities. In addition, events at your business can be promoted via email to other Chamber members.

Board Room
Members may use the Chamber Board  Room at no cost. Must be reserved in advance.  Non members may use the Board Room during business hours for a fee of $50 a day.  Reservations are to be made with the Chamber Executive Secretary.

 




Billboards
Three billboards advertise Fairfield and draw in people from out of town to eat, play, lodge, shop, and conduct business here.  The billboards are located on both Interstate 45 Fairfield exits and on Highway 84 East as you enter Fairfield.

Use of Marquees
Community and non-profit events may be advertised on the two marquees owned by the Chamber. One on East Hwy. 84 and the other in front of the Chamber/Visitor Center office. (Use is subject to approval and space permitting.)

Publications
The Chamber produces various publications for marketing purposes. These include the quarterly "Simply Fairfield" magazine and a Fairfield area map.  Four thousand copies of the  magazine are printed for distribution at area businesses, the Visitor Center/Chamber Office, new resident packets, new business packets, and eleven Point of Entry sites through out Texas. The Fairfield Chamber encourages its member to participate in advertising through these means. In addition,  businesses and organizations are welcome to contribute articles for publication in the “Simply Fairfield" magazine. 

Membership Labels
A free set of mailing labels of the entire Chamber membership is available to members at their request.
