Santa Barbara Chamber Introduces Members-Only Business Exchange

Chamber of Commerce members now can engage in online networking

The Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday announced a new member benefit to further assist member networking and business prospecting.

The Members-Only Business Exchange, or MOBE, is an online, 24/7, social network designed exclusively for chamber members. Chamber members now will have the added benefit of profiling their business’ products and services, as well as the ability to network and engage one another in a highly secure and private online community environment.

“This shows our commitment to our members and demonstrates the chamber’s efforts to better facilitate business networking dialogue and interaction within the chamber business member community. Given these challenging times economically, it is vital for businesses to reach out to one another,” said Steve Cushman, president of the chamber. “Business networking can help many businesses to not only meet their objectives, but to exceed financial expectations. We believe this new service to our members will provide a valuable new benefit to enhance commerce within our chamber community, and we encourage all chamber members to take advantage of this free service.”

MOBE was designed and created by iBOC Networks, a Santa Barbara-based business and chamber member. Businesses that wish to utilize the MOBE network must be an active member of the Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
