Greater Fennville Area Chamber of Commerce January News
Posted: Dec 22, 2011

As always, the New Year tends to inspire a fresh outlook on life.  Resolutions are made, old habits are (hopefully) dropped, and the hope of success is glimmering in every eye.  No matter the reason for success, it is nice to feel supported within one’s community.  If you are a business owner in the greater Fennville area, think about how the Greater Area Fennville Chamber of Commerce can be a support to you. The Chamber exists to advance the commercial, industrial, civic, and general interests of the City of Fennville and the surrounding community. 

By joining the Greater Area Fennville Chamber of Commerce, local businesses are set up for success. The Chamber helps businesses network with and promote other Chamber members.  Members do business with other members.  With the product or service you have to offer, you will more than recover the cost of your annual dues with increased sales from networking with other members.

The Chamber also helps promote your business through the Chamber website.  Your business listing will include contact information and a link to your website.  Ad space on the website is also available for an additional fee.  Likewise, your business and events can be highlighted in monthly news articles and featured on the website.  Press releases can be sent out to media contacts, events posted on the community calendar, and business news can be included.  Other membership benefits include promotion through community events like Tuesdays in the Park concert series, the Goose Festival and other events, brochure display at many establishments in town, an advertising discounts.

Yearly membership is $80; membership for multiple business owners is $80 for the first business and $40 for the second.  Apply online at, or contact for other options.

Membership renewal letters will be sent out February 1, 2012, and are due February 28, 2012.  Renewal applications can be found on the website.  In addition, members are invited to attend the Annual Banquet and meeting, held Saturday, January 28, 2012.  The banquet is a chance for members to come together to enjoy a delicious meal, and to socialize with one another.  Each year at the banquet, the Chamber recognizes an individual(s) from the Greater Fennville community and is presented the Robert Hutchinson Citizen of the Year Award.  The Business of the Year award is also presented at the banquet.

This New Year, consider adding a membership to the Greater Fennville Area Chamber of Commerce to your resolutions; a very attainable resolution with a great success!
