Why Does Membership In the Chamber Matter to You?
Dues are affordable and tailored to the size of your business. Your investment in the Durand Chamber automatically qualifies you for insurance group discounts through member agencies.
People log onto our website looking for places to shop, visit, or to live and do business. You’ll be there with a link to your website, making you easy to find and contact.
Let our office display your brochures, flyers, business cards and other promotional materials.
Special events? We’ll include them in our weekly “What’s Happening?” e-mail, on the chamber website and in the monthly e-newsletter.
“Who ya gonna call???” The chamber! People call and visit the chamber office asking where to eat, shop, stay, etc., and we only refer them to our members. We will speak for you.
Being Informed Matters
The chamber office gets updates to pass along to you from the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Corporation and other agencies whose information can affect your business and bottom line.
We work closely with the Michigan Small Business Development Center which offers a wide range of services including counseling, training and research to assist you. Many MSBDC services are offered free or at very affordable prices.
When it comes to your business, YOU are the expert. Share your expertise directly with others at chamber events or speak at a meeting. You’ll be pleased with how much interest you can generate and how willing others are to help support you and your business…when they know about it.
The expression may be old, but it still fits. No one is an island and everyone has a story. Membership in the chamber means you’re invited to monthly board meetings, “Coffee and Calendars,” the annual dinner, breakfast, and more. Find out who’s new, what’s new, and take time to chat about problem solving and issues of interest to everyone.
Attend, enjoy, and help out at existing events or start new ones. Come reminisce at the annual End of Summer Cruisin’ car show. Win big at the Hometown Party. Bring the family to Autumn Fest. Enjoy the sounds of Wednesday Night Live concerts and other events provided by our members. Invite them to YOUR events.
There is strength in numbers. Your Chamber of Commerce is the only organization in Durand that exists solely to build and expand business through information, communication and growth opportunities. The larger our membership, the greater impact you’ll have on our community.
