Membership Frequently Asked Questions

Since 1993, we have been an integral part of the Colorado Springs business community. The Women’s Chamber remains committed to helping our members and the business community by driving economic development and stimulating business growth, while advocating on political and business issues that impact women in the business community.

All of our members are offered opportunities in business through education, connections, partnering and mentoring.

Joining the SCWCC is your #1 strategic business decision and an effective partnering opportunity.

A national survey* of 2,000 adults showed that being active in a local chamber of commerce is an effective business strategy, as two-thirds of consumers believe such companies use good business practices, are reputable, care about their customers, and are involved in the community.
* The study was conducted by The Schapiro Group, an Atlanta-based strategic consulting firm. It was commissioned by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE), in cooperation with the Western Association of Chamber Executives.

Business Statistics for El Paso County

According to the Census Bureau, in 2012 there were 54,247 businesses in El Paso County. Of those, 26,903 were owned by men and 20,043 by women.

SCWCC’s culture and energy comes from diverse, professional women supporting and partnering with one another. We specifically focus on positive impact and making a difference for our members in the business community.

Small business owners comprise the largest segment of our membership. A national study* showed that joining a chamber carries powerful benefits for small business members. When consumers know a small business is a member of its local chamber, the business enjoys:

  • 49% increase in its consumer favorability rating
  • 73% increase in consumer awareness
  • 68% increase in its local reputation
  • 80% increase in likelihood that consumers will patronize the business in the future

There are no men on the board currently.

Although the majority of our members are small business owners, SCWCC has diverse members whose businesses vary widely by size, revenue and industry, including solopreneurs, start-ups, and presidents and CEOs of large corporations to small non-profit organizations.
