The Chamber office staff answers countless requests for referrals to reputable local businesses and competent professionals. Without exception, the Chamber recommends only Chamber member businesses.

The Southern Ocean County Chamber welcomes all business people interested in developing contacts, connections or advancing the economy of our region. Our organization is membership based, and all of our events are designed to benefit those businesses who have committed to support our mission by being members in good standing.

Non-Members may attend two of our events. After a Non-Member has reached their trial two event limit, they may not attend future events without joining the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce.

This policy applies to all SOC Chamber events unless otherwise noted in the corresponding event materials (event flyers, advertising and online postings).  Please read event information thoroughly; some events are exclusively for current Chamber.
