Join us as a Member of the 2015 Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce! This is your invitation to be a part of the continuing effort “….to develop, enhance, and maintain a viable business climate in Muhlenberg County, and to provide leadership for the economic growth, educational development, and a better quality of life.” (Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce Mission Statement).

By joining more than 200 other local individuals and businesses as members of the Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce, you give the added support in pursuit of that goal and mission.

The citizens and business community of our county made the bold and historic decision in 2005 to build a more effective Chamber of Commerce that would unite our best efforts to achieve our economic development goals. Since the 2006 inaugural year, your “Greater Chamber…” has been actively involved in the pursuit of these goals with membership meetings that included state officials such as former Governor Ernie Fletcher and Lt. Governor Steve Pence, as well as Agriculture Secretary Richie Farmer and State Chamber of Commerce President David Atkinson, just to name few.

Your Membership investment in the Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce has many benefits, including:

  • Economic Development of Muhlenberg County, including expansion of existing businesses and recruitment of new industry
  • Member information source and direct liaison with Kentucky Chamber of Commerce
  • Working relationships with area legislators about our needs and positions

Our Membership Dues structure is based generally on staff size. To determine what your dues amount would be, please reference the enclosed chart detailing the levels of a Sustaining Membership.

While most members will make the Sustaining Membership commitment, many choose to be one of the “Business Champion” members by making a Bronze ($1500), Gold ($2,250) or Platinum ($2,750) level commitment. If you choose to join and are similarly led to voluntarily increase your level of support, we encourage your enhanced investment.

Please consider this invitation a call to action for you to help lead Muhlenberg County toward the goals of a “Greater Muhlenberg…” For more information or to join, please contact us at 338-5422, 754-2360 or visit www.greatermuhlenberg.com.

 

The main source of revenue for the general operating expenses of the Chamber is through membership dues.  The amount of the membership dues may vary from a Sustaining Membership based on the number of employees in a business to a Business Champion Membership that exceeds a basic membership.  Membership dues are payable annually.  Statements are sent in advance of the due date.  Additional revenue comes from fundraisers held by the Chamber throughout the year.
