A Chamber of Commerce is not only meant to serve local businesses – it’s also beneficial to the community residents and workers it serves! Did you know a Chamber of Commerce is not government related? Sure, it’s important for us to maintain a great partnership with our local government, but we’re actually a not-for-profit organization, believe it or not! Do you know what a Chamber of Commerce can do for YOU? Here are the benefits our Chamber brings to Macomb County:
· Business Directory
Similar to an address book, the Business Directory lists local businesses in our surrounding communities. The directory can be found on our website. You can search a Keyword or by Category if you’re looking for something specific. Not finding a business you’re looking for? They may not yet be a Chamber member! There are more than 1,300 reliable, professional and trustworthy members ready to serve you! We understand how important it is to “Shop Local” and support Michigan businesses. If you contact a member, be sure to tell them the Chamber sent you!
· Community Calendar
Looking for something to do locally? Our community calendar is open to the public to search for an event, or to post one of your own! Search now for a fun-filled event right in your hometown! Do you have an upcoming event that needs promotion? Submit an event here!
Want to save money? Who doesn’t! Our members like to offer exclusive deals to the community via Member-to-Public coupons. View the coupons here and don’t forget to mention the Chamber website to get your discount today!
· Job Bank
Due to the high-demand from our members, the Job Bank is a brand new feature on our website. Seeking employment? View available jobs here, or upload your resume. Chamber Members are able to post available positions or view resumes of job seekers.
· Events + Expos
We plan and host a plethora of events that are great for developing your network and learning more about community businesses. Keep your eyes open for Macomb’s Business Showcase, Bass Brew & BBQ Festival, the Healthy Living Expo, and our Ladies Evening Out. Stop by the beverage tent at Sterlingfest and say hello to your local Chamber of Commerce staff.
Mark your calendars for our Fall Grub Crawl community event on Wednesday, September 23rd. More details coming soon!
Not only do we host social events in person, we’re also pretty social online! Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest and keep up with our weekly blog!
