Bridging the gap between chambers of commerce and their members

After eight years with the regional chamber of commerce in Western New York, Craig Turner founded Momentum. Our specialized marketing agency focuses on bridging the gap between chambers of commerce and their members. As President, he’s spent a decade aiding small and medium-sized businesses navigate chambers of commerce in the U.S. and Canada. The goal: strategically using these memberships to help these businesses grow.

Craig’s experience as a staffer, board member, and chamber member provides Momentum with a unique insight into the chamber/member dynamic. As a result, he has dedicated significant time to member recruitment, satisfaction, and securing sponsorships. Subsequently, for our business clients, we pursue the relationships, opportunities, and value that memberships and sponsorships aim to offer.

Momentum for Chambers of Commerce

Momentum’s chamber of commerce network runs far-and-wide, touching all parts of the U.S. and Canada. We offer an array of services including virtual ambassador training, member benefit programs, chamber consulting and and chamber-specific AI solutions.

Chambers of commerce have hundreds, even thousands, of members. If you were able, you would provide personalized service to each and every one of them. But you can’t. It’s not possible. So we focus on creating systems to help you have a more productive conversation with your members. Even the smallest ones.

Momentum is headquartered in Tonawanda, NY. We work with companies and chambers of commerce anywhere in the U.S. or Canada (and we pulled off Mexico for a client once, too!).


Craig collaborates with our business clients who are members of these organizations. He helps you create, refine, and execute a spending strategy that delivers results. Our connections with chambers of commerce and business associations across the U.S. and Canada enable us to use them effectively for your company’s growth objectives.

We believe that every dollar you spend on memberships and sponsorships should return new relationships, networks, business and, most importantly, Momentum.
