Interested in becoming a Member Benefits Partner?

As a Member Benefits Partner, you can elevate your corporate brand and leverage our reach to connect with your target audience. If you have a unique B2B offering that helps businesses save time and money and/or enhances a user experience, then let’s talk!

To be eligible, interested parties must meet the following criteria:

 

Non-negotiables:

  • Membership. Partners must be members in good standing of the BC Chamber of Commerce, which means not only are you delivering member value, but you’re receiving it too!
  • Alignment of core values. Partners must share the provincial association’s core values and commitment to supporting businesses across the province.
  • Unique value. Partners must offer unique value, i.e. savings and/or non-financial benefits that cannot be secured elsewhere.
  • Promotional assets. Partners must provide multi-media content, which may include videos, for promotional purposes.
  • Program management and support. Partners are responsible for managing all aspects of their B2B program and providing technical/non-technical support to program participants as needed.
  • Regular reporting. Partners must share the enrolment data of their B2B program with us via quarterly and year-end reports.

 

Nice-to-haves:

  • Dedicated webpage and URL. Partners may provide a landing page dedicated to the offering – ideally white labelled with the BC Chamber of Commerce brand clearly visible – and a URL link to the page. 
  • Revenue share. While generating savings and/or non-financial benefits to businesses is paramount, there will be some instances where partners may choose to share revenues with the promoters of the offering. Where a revenue share arrangement is in place, partners must settle any revenue owing no later than 90 days following the year to which it relates.  
  • Active participation. Relationships drive success! Partners are encouraged to be active participants at our virtual and/or in-person events.
