Joining the Chamber of Commerce has been helpful to our non-profit in so many ways. The Social Media workshop that was hosted in conjunction with the Community Foundation has changed the way we market and use social media to benefit our clients and supporters. Chamber membership is well worth the investment–I am sure it has paid for itself each year we’ve been a part of the Chamber! I look forward to growing with the Chamber of Commerce as our non-profit continues to expand our services in the future. Chamber Membership is vital for growth and longevity within the community!

I invest in the Alpena Chamber because it allows me to grow as a professional. The Chamber offers tools needed to expand my knowledge of local businesses, provides resources that I can use and allows me to network with like-minded individuals. I became a board member so that I could get involved and give back to a community that has given so much to me and my family.”
