Membership Rates

Your membership investment is determined by the following rates. Investments are based on two factors: the number of full-time equivalent employees (FTE) and the type of firm or organization. Your company must determine its FTE count if it does not fall into one of the Special Investment Categories.

Your employee level can be found under General Investment. Your annual investment is listed there. You must pay this amount, plus a one-time $25 enrollment fee, upon application. Each $370 investment will include a representative as the contact.

All employees of a member business can participate. Employees who wish to be listed in the directory and receive mailings can be added as additional representatives for $155 annually. See exceptions for the professional category listed below.

“As a small business owner, the value of the Chamber has been tremendous for our business. From providing us with a vast network of mentors and business owners to several referrals, this partnership has been one of the most valuable business decisions we made in our first year. The first year is a significant challenge and ensuring we align our investments in the area where we see the most return is critical.”
Liesl Hays, Owner The Historic Browning Inn
