We invest in the Alpena Chamber because of all of the support and services that they offer to the Alpena business community. Planning events to bring visitors to our area, offering seminars and other types of business related training opportunities and their unrelenting focus on marketing our area are just a few examples of how they are continually trying to improve and strengthen our local business.

Art in the Loft is a proud member of the Alpena Chamber of Commerce. Since being a member we know that we are in a group that has a mission to make Northeast Michigan a destination, not only for tourists but also a place where Alpena’s natives are proud to call home.

The Alpena Chamber of Commerce is in support of all types of businesses that will benefit the business climate of our community, which is refreshing for our Fine Arts Center.

As a host to the monthly “Good Morning Alpena” breakfasts, which we always look forward to, we are able to see firsthand the activities and events that local businesses produce. When being a part of these types of events, as well as a member of the Chamber, we know that our business will flourish and will greatly benefit our community.

I can’t speak to the quality of other Chambers, but in my observation, it appears that the Alpena Chamber is right up there with the best. I’m happy to join the organization. You do a great job.

My Chamber membership helps me keep in touch with the business community in Alpena. I really appreciate how the Chamber has expanded its role over the last few years, and has aggressively sought to improve Alpena’s business climate. Jackie and her crew are deeply involved in soliciting business owners to relocate to Alpena, or to start-up businesses in Alpena. Our community desperately needs economic growth, and I believe our Chamber is working diligently to facilitate growth

As someone who has owned a business in Alpena for 20 years It’s a little embarrassing to admit I didn’t belong to the chamber. As many business owners understand you are inundated with people wanting you to buy this and that. However, I’m sorry I didn’t join sooner they are more than accommodating and do all they can to help you. The information is very informative, and you can keep abreast of all that is going on in the community. I would recommend anyone sitting on the fence about joining to do it without hesitation.
