What is the one thing your Chamber of Commerce website can't do? Lose a prospective member of course!
If your website is the 24/7/365 salesperson it's supposed to be, you need to make sure there is no chance a prospect is going to walk away because they can't find your join button. This button will lead your site visitor to your defined target page to be a member. The resulting page can also serve as a sales pitch to why they should become a member and what the ROI is for membership. Here is an example of a well placed and functional version of a join button in action on the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce website:
