A major task of this committee will focus on sharing news, events and coming up with ideas to let organizations “tell their story”.

Grounds & Re- Development Committee

The Grounds & Re-Development Committee works with contractors accepting bids for the upstairs storage unit to be converted into living space for on-going revenue source. Also, to look at opportunities for land to rent for festival events, markets etc. throughout the year.

The Missaukee Area Chamber of Commerce is needing members of the community to step forward and play an active role in the development and growth of our county. The Board of Directors and Committees are supported through volunteer dedication and commitment through donating time, energy and experience.

The present staff includes 1 full time and 2 part time employees and can not do the necessary Chamber requirements plus take on the annual festivals and events. This is where our community needs to take action and be an active part of the town they love and want to be successful. It will take everyone working together to achieve the small town where everyone can thrive, grow and be successful!

We are pleased to announce that Lake City Area Chamber of Commerce is now
Missaukee Area Chamber of Commerce!
