Our Client Service Promise
At NCCI, nothing we ever work at is more important
than the drive not just to put the collective member’s interest before any
single member, not to hide something they would hate, but to understand them,
to learn to think with them while assisting them to think with us in return.
Client service is our cause. Our first priority is to deliver the
highest quality service to our members. We are committed to making your experience
with the Chamber the best it can be. We recognize that a reputation for
excellence must be earned every day; as a result, we have created and implemented
a Client Service Promise:
We will be accessible
- Our pledge is to be available to you on your schedule. Our goal is to have you talk to a person 99% of the time, not a machine.
- We assure you that you will speak to a person who will identify themselves and courteously assist you in reaching the person you are calling.
- We will return your phone calls and emails promptly, no later than by 5:00 p.m. the next business day but often much sooner.
- Each NCCI representative will provide their necessary contact information so you can reach them easily. If an NCCI employee is not available you’ll be provided with an alternative contact.
- We will train our employees so that more than one person can handle your inquiry on any given issue.
We will be responsive
- Our team can be mobilized 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in the event of a reasonable call to service.

- We will provide you with appropriate recommendations based on your business.
- We will discuss strategy and tactics with you before taking any action on your behalf.
- Your membership will receive constant review and attention from our staff. We will be there when you need us.
We will keep you informed
- At the beginning, throughout our representation, and as often as you like we will provide you with information about your membership, the business issues arising and our advocacy efforts.
- We will touch base with you through regular forums and communication channels that fit your schedule.
We are service oriented
