Start an Associated HCC Chapter
Want to start a local chapter of The Holistic Chamber of Commerce closer to you? Please read the following information to learn more about what it takes to start an HCC Chapter, and request a Chapter Application below.
Our HCC Chapter Start-up package includes the Associated Holistic Chamber of Commerce Guidelines and Start-up Kit with agendas, templates, and checklists for preparing your meetings. We also assist in ongoing promotion and phone consultations for support. We estimate this will save you more than 100 hours of footwork, research, and study in the first quarter alone.
Starting a chapter also allows you to supplement your income and boost your visibility.
How much is your time worth to you? Can a local HCC help you and other holistic professionals and businesses in your community? We think so. Plus, our system & support will save you time and allow you to make more money!
Q: Why would I want to start a Holistic Chamber?
A: The world is changing and you want to be a part of the change, to shape where we are headed. The HCC is here to nurture, inspire, educate and motivate creators of new, sustainable culture. We create connections between holistically-minded people and increase our presence in mainstream culture. Our chapters are the hub of synergy in their local communities and strengthen our network all over.
Q: Isn't it like 'herding cats?'
A: The largest cats, lions, know the value of traveling together. Likewise, holistic professionals and businesses can expand their voice in the marketplace and increase their access to consumers and customers by joining together in The Holistic Chamber of Commerce.
Q: What's the cost and how do I do it?
A: There are 3 steps to starting your own Associated HCC (AHCC) in your community: First, join us as a Professional Member (currently $177 plus a one-time $35 processing fee). Second, submit a Chapter Application Request to get details about our Chapter Leadership program.
