Milan Area Chamber of Commerce
A Word from the Chamber
Thank you to all of our members for a wonderful year! We are beyond thankful to be serving the Milan Area Community. We are excited to see what the new year brings to all of you!
Renewal Season & Updated Benefits
Happy December, Chamber Members!

It’s coming up on renewal season, and we wanted to share some exciting news. We’ve been thinking about the future, and we’ve come up with some ideas for some new, or “renewed,” benefits to help serve the businesses in our community. Here are a few things we’ve discussed to help you get the most out of your Chamber membership:

  • More active social media presence: over the coming months you may begin to see your social media posts shared to the Chamber’s Facebook and Instagram pages more often. If you’re not already following us, be sure to do so, and if you have a post you want us to see, please send us the link in a message so we don’t miss it!
  • Refreshed and expanded list of member-to-member discounts and perks: Let us know if you currently offer or would like to offer your fellow Chamber members an exclusive perk when they shop with you or use your services.
  • A bigger variety of networking opportunities: in 2023, we will begin offering more gatherings, like our Business After Hours events, but with more options for days of the week and times of day to help allow more of our members to attend. We also plan to add options for online networking opportunities.
  • Business educational events: also in 2023, we will be connecting with experts in the business field to offer presentations on various subjects relevant to Chamber members - for example, business finance, accounting, taxes, marketing, etc.
  • Early Bird Membership and Sponsorship Pricing: in early 2023 we will be sending out an email to allow businesses to pre-register for our yearly sponsorships and events. This will allow us to offer discounted rates for early registration, and get that information into your hands at the beginning of the year when most businesses are figuring out their budgets.

Plus of course, the benefits we already have in place as part of your membership:

  • Business listing on milanchamber.org: please check your listing and let us know ASAP if anything needs to be updated.
  • Participation and sponsorship opportunities in Chamber supported events: Downtown Trick or Treat, Small Business Saturday, Win the Window, and Milan’s annual Christmas Parade to name a few!
  • E-newsletter coverage: Our newsletter highlights Chamber and member events and activities and provides updates on events and happenings in Milan. If you have an event you’d like featured, let us know!

Be on the lookout for an email soon inviting you to renew your membership. As a heads up, we will be restructuring the membership fee scale so that we can offer benefits that are more comparable with some of our neighboring Chamber of Commerce offerings. Please feel free to respond to this email and let us know what you think of our new ideas, or if you have suggestions of your own!
