Be a part of the community, join the chamber
We are getting ready for 2016. Collecting pictures for the destination guides, proofreading descriptions, helping to design ads and looking for new members are all a part of our membership drive.
New businesses join their local chamber to get their name and business out to the masses. Larger businesses tend to join because it’s the right thing to do. The older, more established businesses have seen benefits of participation in the chamber and support its mission. The chamber receives many calls each month asking for referrals to local businesses. Consumers recognize that a chamber member is more likely to maintain ethical business practices.
Belonging to a chamber is like belonging to a family. We share weekly emails to stay connected, advertise your events, talk about each other on Facebook and twitter, call each other on the hotline if there is an emergency, host business after hours so we can all hang out together and we pick a friend of the week (member of the week).
Some of the other benefits include: listing in Destination Guide, listing on leech-lake.com, mini website, full-time staffed information center to handle telephone, email and person to person referrals, lobby display racks, and exclusive advertising opportunities. But the most important benefit is encouraging a unified community.
The chamber works for its members, so please attend a meeting or a business after hours, take part in our on line surveys and ask us for help. Membership information below or call 218-547-1313.
