Our members say it best:
I was born in Biloxi, at the old beach hospital. I graduated from Biloxi High. I returned, to Biloxi, to practice dentistry for 40 successful years. Although I was blown away by hurricane Katrina, I would not leave my dear home, family and friends. I have now opened a new business in Biloxi, which centers on Solar Electrical Energy, (EDEE- electrical device for economic energy). There are several Biloxians in the business with me.
There is only one reason why I strongly support the Biloxi Bay Chamber. The Chamber IS Biloxi... It supports Biloxi. It promotes Biloxi. It keeps Biloxi in the forefront of its interest and considerations. It strives to make Biloxi a special place, where not only I, but everyone, would like to call home. The Biloxi Bay Chamber holds us up, stands behind us and encourages our advancements. Ask me about my great great grandfather, my great grandfather, both of my grandfathers, and my father, and I will tell you about REAL Biloxians. That is what I feel the Bay Chamber is doing. Promoting more REAL Biloxians.

As a young business, I can only praise the Biloxi Bay Chamber for its great support. The day Tom and I signed up as members, Tina Ross-Seamans, Executive Director told us the secret to making our membership work: "You have to work the Chamber to make the Chamber work for you". Indeed she was right! From the very first event I attended with the Chamber, the fabulous Annual Halloween "Boo Connects" at Points South Realty in Biloxi, my address book and calendar started filling up. Since then, we have seen our business flourish and have been absolutely amazed by the support we have received from the Chamber and its members and how readily they have shared their business experience and knowledge with us. Our champion ambassador, Al Henrion, recommended I join the Ambassadors Committee and I am glad I listened to his wise advice. The Ambassadors are a great team of friendly and active professionals ready to help promote new businesses. I made truly valuable connections for Wonga Studios at the very first Ribbon Cutting I attended. Being able to do business and network in a truly relaxed, friendly atmosphere is worth a Million Dollars, but with the Biloxi Bay Chamber of Commerce it only cost our business $145 for two members. Can anyone else beat that?!!!A great WONGA! to the Chamber!"

"Membership in the Biloxi Bay Chamber is important to me because it has changed my life. I was marketing an energy drink that was distributed online when I was invited by a dear friend to check out the Biloxi Bay Chamber at one of their Bay Connects. I joined shortly after. I signed up to participate as an Ambassador, attending all Ribbon Cuttings, helping at Bay Connects and other events held by the Chamber. One day, I was asked to take photos of our FAM tour. I was glad to volunteer. Little did I know that day would change the course of my life? Soon I was the photographer taking photos at all the Chamber events. I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of South Alabama, so I enrolled in their Certification Program for Photography and completed the required courses within a year.Since joining and participating in the Biloxi Bay Chamber, I have served as an Ambassador, VP of Public Relations and as the official Photographer working closely with Tina Ross-Seamans, Executive Director and the Board of Directors. I started my photography business last year and have not had to advertise because of the friendships I have made through the Chamber. Business is all about relationships! Doing the right thing with the right people! I found the right people in the Biloxi Bay Chamber!"
