Windsor, April 22, 2024 – The Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce a new partnership with the Ford City Business Improvement Association. These two organizations represent hundreds of local businesses and are working together with the goal of providing even more savings and benefits to their respective members. “This is an exciting opportunity for Ford City BIA members to experience some of the benefits of Chamber membership” said Chamber CEO Rakesh Naidu. “It’s a great way for our organization to reach out to so many unique local businesses and introduce them to what the Chamber does, and how it can benefit our local small & medium sized businesses.”

“Ford City is a truly unique area of our city which is part of what makes our BIA so special.” said Ford City BIA Chair Shane Potvin. “By partnering with the Chamber, we will make our BIA an even better place to invest and grow a business while supporting the great businesses that already call our area home.”

Under this new partnership, any Ford City BIA member, even if they are not a member of the Chamber of Commerce, can take advantage of Chamber Affinity programs. This includes access to deals on home, auto, and business insurance, group insurance plans, and discounts on office supplies among other things.

Additionally, the first ten Ford City BIA members that become Chamber members at the Business Builder tier will be upgraded to the Connector tier, complimentary for the first year. As an official member of the Windsor-Essex Chamber of Commerce, these businesses will be able to access the member savings for Chamber events and additional marketing benefits associated with the Connector level of membership.

This exciting partnership is set to commence May 1st, 2024.
