Preferred Partners

The Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber provides our members with cost-saving discount programs to help support their businesses and improve their bottom line. We do this through our affinity program partnerships. Affinity programs provide high quality products and services at great prices to our members and serve as a non-dues revenue source for the Regional Chamber.

Preferred Partners are able to utilize the Chamber logo on their marketing materials. The Chamber distributes marketing materials in our new member packets, as well as presents the product/service to all new member prospects and current members via email, social media, print and website. Preferred Partners are also highlighted in our monthly Member Benefit email, sent to all contacts within our membership.

The Regional Chamber receives many requests each year, and in order to facilitate these requests and ensure that we are partnering to provide the best possible benefit for our members, the following criteria has been established for Preferred Partners’ review and selection.
