Member Testimonials

“If you are a company that is considering joining Greater Rochester Chamber and hasn’t yet made that step, I would say it’s time to join a wonderful community of business leaders who are committed to not only driving their business’s successes but also in fueling and contributing to the success of our community locally. I believe there are 1,300 members locally, so what a network of other business leaders to be able to bounce ideas off of, get inspiration, network with, and partner with, all in support of driving one another’s business and supporting our local community and keeping people in Rochester, where we all live.”

Kimberly Jones, President & CEO, Butler/Till

"As a new business, we have grown very rapidly in the last four years, starting with one employee, and growing to over 60. There are a lot of HR questions that come up as a business owner and among our staff. Greater Rochester Chamber has been very helpful in providing us with resources and different tools we can lean on in the HR realm. This means we didn’t have to take on the financial burden of hiring somebody in the HR realm, but instead allowed us to lean on Greater Rochester Chamber for resources that have answered a lot of our questions and guided us as we continue to grow.”

Rachel Bantelman-Evans, Owner and Founder, Lumos Infrared Sauna Studio

“We had to grow like never before and hiring people was key. Having access to the talent at Greater Rochester Chamber to get us access to the people in the community was instrumental. There's a lot of challenges still in [our industry] and a lot of solutions that can help. We're going to need the Chamber to help us hire more people and continue to get us access to business leaders and community leaders to help us build our community here and grow.”

Jay McHarg, CEO, AeroSafe Global

"Having Greater Rochester Chamber as a partner helps us identify talent, market opportunities here, and helps us showcase our growth. On the advocacy side, the Chamber helps not only when there's issues at the state level that we really need to help shape to make our business grow faster, but also as the laws change make sure we're aware of what's going on and making sure that we can stay in compliance.”

Mark Murphy, CEO, Greenlight Networks

"Optimax utilizes Greater Rochester Chamber in a multitude of ways from the support services, from hiring, recruiting support, to background checks to the HR Forum networking and learning environments, which has been really, really important for me personally. From an organizational standpoint, we've also used the Chamber and the resources for a ton of different types of training. The legal updates have also been extremely important. The surveys, the ability to reach out to this network is really, really important."

Alejandro Mendoza, Director of HR, Optimax

"Greater Rochester Chamber is a great resource. It is well worth your membership dues, you get far more out of it than you pay for it. I think the reality is there is so much there that is untapped, to bring a different point of view. For us, we're a small human resources so having Greater Rochester Chamber as an extension can help me with changes in laws, updates to handbooks, and just resources when something is new or changing. That in and of itself has been invaluable for us."

Kara Martin, Director of Human Resources, REDCOM Laboratories
