Reasons to become a Chamber member
Membership in the Chamber brings many advantages for member business. Although there are many benefits to joining the chamber, here are some of the big ones:
A STRONGER SENSE OF COMMUNITY
As you attend events, get involved with committees, and develop stronger relationships with members of the business community, you’ll make real and lasting differences to the Marquette area.
SHAPING OF LOCAL POLICY
The Marquette Chamber of Commerce is a member-run, not-for-profit advocate for business in the Marquette area that provides our business community with a unified voice. We represent you to the government at the municipal level on issues that impact business in our community. When you join the Chamber, you know that someone has your back and that you have a say in addressing the issues that concern you.
WE REFER OUR MEMBERS FIRST
When we receive inquiries about community offerings, we always refer our Chamber members first.
In addition to the referrals of our member businesses, the Chamber offers promotional opportunities through our monthly newsletter, websites, social media, and event sponsorship.
The Marquette Chamber organizes a year-round schedule of educational events, mixers, and other special events. Collaboration is the key to a successful community.
INFORMATION AND EDUCATION
You’ll receive regular newsletters to keep you up-to-date on community events, member news, and programs of interest to our members.
A COLLABORATIVE RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHER BUSINESSES, ORGANIZATIONS, AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS
Our staff and Board meet regularly with other business organizations such as the Lake Superior Community Partnership, Marquette County Visitors Bureau, The Marquette Downtown Development Authority, and the Marquette SmartZone. This allows us to identify opportunities and issues collaboratively and work together to build a more positive business environment.
