Don’t just join the Chamber… Belong!
Becoming a member of the Missaukee Area Chamber of Commerce is just the beginning. As the primary voice of business in our city, the Chamber mobilizes members to promote and drive important initiatives that benefit our region’s business environment. We encourage you to join a committee and add your voice to the growing business community in Missaukee County.
The Events & Program Committee helps to plan the 3 annual events including: Greatest Fourth in the North, Festival of the Pines and Membership Banquet. This committee is responsible for choosing entertainment and event logistics.
The Membership Committee is responsible for actively recruiting new members, developing strategies for reaching prospective members, and assisting staff with the development of membership leads. This committee will focus on maximizing individual memberships and benefits for being part of the Missaukee Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Economic Development Committee helps to advance ideas, and strengthen business development through interaction with city and county officials. This committee will work with local Realtors and come up with ideas for helping to educate potential business owners of opportunities to start a business and utilize the empty buildings and store fronts. The focus of this committee will be to help grow and transform Missaukee County as a place for people to live, work, visit and achieve success.
The Community Action Committee works to raise awareness of the non-profits, clubs and groups in the area and helps to address their needs by connecting residents to individual organizations. A major task of this committee will focus on sharing news, events and coming up with ideas to let organizations “tell their story”. A major project will be working with area organizations and coming up with an event to focus on “love thy neighborhood” to include local businesses, contractors, residents through volunteer and in-kind donations and hours.
The Personnel Committee assists with Chamber staff retention, training opportunities for development, Board planning and training to work towards maintaining the integrity and intentions of the by-laws.
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.
