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.

The Alpena Chamber has been extremely helpful to us in the establishment of our new business, especially using the monthly notes announcement for our upcoming events, in addition to sponsored mailings where we can get our name and services known to the local community. Every time we call the Chamber we get fast action, something very important to us.

Specification Stone Products has gotten involved with the Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce because they have been doing an awesome job in promoting the Alpena area, and wanted to be a part of that. We are proud to be members.

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
