While maintaining the chamber with a skeleton crew since the end of 2017, we have fallen behind in sending out letters for renewals of dues. As a result, there are many businesses who have been loyal members for years, but we have not collected dues for 2018 u0026amp; 2019. These dues are necessary in assisting with our operating costs as well as funding the events we hold each year. We have recently mailed a letter with and option to mail in your dues.
We do prefer that businesses register their business on our new website as well as pay your dues through our website. Members of the chamber will have access to post events on our community calendar, which we are marketing as the “go-to” source for everything happening in our area. The Newstead Library, the Newstead Historical Society, and a few merchants have begun adding events along with the chamber. Your business will also have a directory page where you can list your own deals, links to your social media, map your location, and post pictures of your products. We are here to help, if you need assistance with registering your business or setting up your directory page, please contact us.
For the remainder of the 2019 Calendar year, we are offering free registration for local non-profit organizations. We have removed membership fee’s for Non-Profit 501(c)3 organizations as we do not see the advantage in charging an organization that operates purely on donations and the kindness of volunteers.
We also added a FREE membership option for High School Students and Senior Citizens. Who better to have on our chamber than our future business leaders and our past business leaders. These demographics are vital to our community and by working together we feel these individuals will provide valuable feedback and insight for our community.
