Meet Your Elected Officials!
Now that the election is over, it's time to reach out and make connections with elected officials.

Your Chamber has advocacy staff who are dedicated to working with elected officials to influence pro-business policies. Having a voice in the government is essential to creating an environment for business success.

Early Out, Later In
The new flight leaving the Muskegon County Airport at 6:00 a.m. means you can get to meetings all over the country.... on time!

The Muskegon County Airport (MKG) launched a new business friendly flight schedule that provides more convenient flight times. Current flights depart from Muskegon at 6 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and depart from Chicago at 12 p.m. and 7 p.m.

This schedule is designed to save you valuable time and money. It is important for you to forward this information to your associates and customers.

Now you can easily pick up customers in Muskegon and drive them directly to your facility! For all day meetings, they can head out on the 7 p.m. flight or they can make local dinner or hotel reservations and be back in the office the following day.

Hist-o-gram Stories: 1950
In late 1950, your Chamber began raising funds to construct a new sports arena in the Muskegon area. 

In February 1952, L.C. Walker, head of Shaw-Walker Company, took over this project. The arena was finally completed in 1957 and named in honor of L.C. Walker for his contributions to the project.

The L.C. Walker Arena has recently been renovated with the goal of improving the fan experience.
