Member professionals volunteer their time to evaluate the needs of Israeli companies, provide essential market feedback, and recommend methods to assist by opening doors to potential partners, customers, or investors. Israeli companies can also benefit from the Chamber’s Virtual Office program which provides them with an American image and presence at low cost and with high visibility.
