Member Benefits

member-benefits

The Edgewater Chamber of Commerce is implementing a new dues structure that will provide more value to you, our members. We’re moving from a fair-share model in which dues are based on the number of employees, to a tiered dues model where businesses choose a level based on the benefits they wish to receive from the Chamber. This allows for the Chamber to serve our membership better by focusing on the value of membership at three distinct tiers.

Over the past two years, the Chamber has increased its value to its membership tremendously. We increased our staff capacity, we launched several new events and programs that promote our businesses and attract customers to Edgewater, and we have created partnerships with the Small Business Advocacy Council and the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce that provide more resources for our membership.

In addition to a new dues structure that will serve you better, we have added the capability to charge dues on a monthly basis to a credit card. Transitioning to this service allows for flexibility and convenience for our members.

Below you will find our new tiered dues structure. You will notice some exciting additions to the member benefits:

-20% off an ad in Loyola University’s Rambiln’ Around Guide or Blog

-A month-long spot on our edgewater.org homepage as a featured business

-One month of sponsored e-newsletters with a large banner ad at the top of the newsletter

-One on one consultations with an Illinois Small Business Development Center Consultant

-A two-hour consultation with a certified CPA

-One Saturday at the Chamber table tent at the Edgewater Farmers Market

-Silver level sponsorship of State of Edgewater including two VIP tickets to the event

We look forward to continuing to help you grow your business!
