Combined Chamber

Dear Colonial Heights and Petersburg Chamber of Commerce Members,

It is our pleasure to announce that earlier this year we entered into discussions to merge the Colonial Heights and Petersburg Chambers of Commerce.

Both Chamber Boards of Directors determined this merger will be extremely beneficial to both Petersburg and Colonia Heights businesses.  With that in mind, both boards have been working together diligently to prepare for an official merger to create a new, dynamic, and business-supporting Chamber organization.

The benefits of the two business communities are many, but some of the most compelling reasons behind merging are:

  • Economic stability.
  • Enhanced cohesion and coordination among the Colonial Heights and Petersburg business communities.
  • Expanding our current footprint to include cities in which we may not be currently active.
  • Stimulating growth - combining the strengths of each Chamber allows the new Chamber organization to give back more to both members and our communities.
  • Exponentially more resources and support for our members.
  • Larger networking opportunities.
We are confident that joining our organizations will result in a stronger Chamber that works hard for the success of our joint business community.

The timeline is as follows:

October 1: The Merger Committee will finalize the new bylaws for the joint organization.

October 19: Meet and Greet Colonial Heights and Petersburg Chamber Monthly Meeting at
The Colonial Heights Optimist Club 11:30am

October 27: Virtual Coffee and Questions 9:00am

November 1: Merger Mixer 5-7pm at Trapezium

November 1: Billing for 2022 dues, to be paid by January 2022 as one Chamber

Early November: In-person event to discuss the merger.
