"In today's economic climate, businesses need any advantage they can get, and Chambers of Commerce like ours strive to play a role in helping businesses make strategic connections and find resources to improve their bottom line," said Frank Tamberrino, President of the Harrisonburg-Rockingham Chamber of Commerce in Virginia. "We appreciate Comcast offering this program as a benefit of Chamber membership and as a tool to help our local businesses increase productivity and save money."

Rob Clapper, President and CEO of the Prince William Chamber of Commerce in Virginia, added: "We are pleased to be able to offer the Comcast affinity program to our membership. Every dollar that our small businesses can save on essential goods and services can, in turn, be spent on revenue-generating activity and jobs creation."
