It is my pleasure to invite you to join the Greater Durand Area Chamber of Commerce Inc. We are made up of businesses who, like yours, are investing time, finances, and energy in services to the greater Shiawassee area. Like you, they provide jobs. They pay taxes. Like you, they are the backbone of our community.
During the last 18 months the Chamber has increased membership by 40%. The Chamber has been more visible in the community than ever before. The Chamber Facebook Page following has increased almost 300%.
The Chamber has brought new activities to the downtown area, including a collaborative effort with the city with Rock the Block. There are sidewalk sales, Harvestfest, Small Business Saturday, Buy Local Promotions, and Christmas in Durand. The End of Summer Cruisin' has grown and continues to grow. The Chamber is encouraging and welcoming growth in all areas.
Thanks to a grant from the Cook Family Foundation, the Chamber Board was given workshops focusing on board and Chamber management. We continue to work with the Not-For-Profit Network to look for ways to better serve our members.
Please join us. Annual membership dues are based on the number of people who work in each business and range. The dues schedule is described on the enclosed membership application.
