Why Join

GROW YOUR BUSINESS

As a Chamber member you’ll have visibility and credibility in the community and access to resources that will help you expand and manage your business. We can enhance your marketing through our communication channels, provide practical how-to information through seminars and programs and give you access to shared purchasing, including our ChamberBlue health insurance.

GROW YOUR NETWORK

The Chamber offers the best opportunities in the region to meet new customers, future employees and trusted suppliers. Our Business After Hours, Early Bird Breakfasts, the Business Expo, golf tournament, awards dinner and other events put you in touch with the region’s business elite. And being an active Chamber member, serving on committees or volunteering, will enhance your reputation in the community.

GROW YOUR INFLUENCE

Your Chamber takes seriously its mission to influence public policy on behalf of the region’s businesses. Our recent success in helping to win approval of a new arena for Bangor is but one example. We work tirelessly for sensible regulations, fair taxes and smart public investments that allow our economy to grow.

GROW OUR COMMUNITY

Your Chamber membership supports programs that serve young professionals, build leadership capacity, bring educators and business people together and promote employee wellness. More importantly, by being a part of the Chamber, you are signaling your support for a more vibrant and sustainable community, something your colleagues and customers will recognize the minute they learn you are a member.
