MURRIETA – The Murrieta Chamber of Commerce announces its merge with the Wildomar Chamber of Commerce. Following a recent vote from both the Murrieta and Wildomar Chamber Board of Directors, a decision was made to move forward and merge both chambers creating the Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber of Commerce. The combination of both chambers now form a larger organization of over 950 members; expanding business opportunities for existing members of both organizations.
“The merge is a unifying of both organizations to form a partnership in order to maximize benefits for the business community,” shares Patrick Ellis, Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber of Commerce President/CEO. “The Chamber exists to strengthen the local economy, promote the community, provide networking opportunities to build business relations and represent the interests of business with Government. The merging of Murrieta and Wildomar will benefit our existing members and our new members by expanding the network of businesses in our communities.”
As of Nov. 1, the two chambers have legally combined, forming one organization. While few members have expressed concern over the merge, the overwhelming majority supports the collaboration and view the merge as a mutually beneficial relationship. The Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber will continue to support existing business, while also inviting its new Wildomar members to reap the benefits of membership.
“Development continues to increase in Wildomar,” continues Ellis. “An increase in economic development from our northerly neighbors opens the potential for new members and increased opportunities for all members of the Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber partnership.”
The Murrieta/Wildomar Chamber will roll out further information on the rebrand of the organization over the coming months with a kick-off event in January 2018.
