Long time Chamber Member explains why he’s championed NYC’s best Chamber since 1978!
What does your business do? When and why did you join the Chamber?
Since 1973, Nature’s Lane has been dedicated not only to the beautiful art of floral design but also to the fine art of customer satisfaction. Whether it be for a special friend, special client, special customer, or special event, Nature’s Lane provides the special touch you’re looking for. Custom-created floral arrangements from simple to sophisticated, from elegant to exotic, to suit your unique taste, enhance your image, and stay within your budget.
We joined the Brooklyn Chamber in 1978 because we strongly believed that it was our company’s best opportunity for a low cost exposure to a large audience.
How has the Brooklyn Chamber helped your business?
First of all, we believe that the Chamber has been instrumental in keeping the general Brooklyn business environment positive. It has played a role in keeping businesses in Brooklyn over the years. We believe that it is important to have a strong Chamber in Brooklyn to avoid a mass exodus of businesses out of the Borough which we witnessed in the 1970s and 80s.
More specifically, the Chamber has provided highly valued exposure in return for a very low membership cost. We have met some of our most valued customers over the years through networking events at the Chamber as well as from direct referrals. The Chamber’s large pool of Membership also serves us well in our purchasing needs. All our insurance and banking needs are met through other Chamber Members.
