Great Question! The Chamber of Haunters, Inc. is a Chamber of Commerce that operates within the Haunted Attraction Industry.
The mission of the Chamber of Haunters is to give members the tools and resources they need to stand out from the crowds with breakthrough ideas and concepts.
The Vision of The Chamber of Haunters is to see that the Haunted Attraction Industry grows and thrives and ensure that all who are within the industry have a voice, are heard, and are properly represented.
Glad you asked. While many organizations will have operations, functions, or opportunities that are similar, the difference is that we operate the same way a Chamber of Commerce operates. For example, we provide opportunities, through government and other organizational programs to help our members to grow, learn and find the resources and tools necessary to ensure that members not only can get started in the haunted attraction industry but to also continue to operate when the bad times come. An example of this would be when COVID first hit the US, we spent 2020 helping our members during that time by creating educational opportunities and trying to assist them in navigating their way through government assistance programs. In 2021 we waived all annual returning member dues and then in 2022, we cut all annual dues by 50% for all new and returning members.
Well, there are many benefits for those who join. First, members receive an awesome “Swag Bag” full of different cool gifts. Next, members can enjoy all the benefits that the Chamber has to offer such as a members-only area full of documents, forms, manuals, educational materials, discounts, etc. Members will also enjoy networking opportunities, educational courses and programs, advertising and marketing opportunities, attending our annual convention, the opportunity to work with our partners for ticketing, additional marketing, advertising, web design, logo design, insurance, legal assistance and so much more. We also have our Chamber Foundation to help those who are looking to get started in the industry as well as our mentorship program to help those in need of some help whether they are new or veteran industry individuals.
