Deductible:

  • Membership dues in the Chamber of Commerce may be tax deductible as an ordinary and necessary business expense. Dues paid to the Chamber are not deductible as charitable contributions for Federal income tax purposes.  The Chamber is not a charity, but serves as an advocacy organization for area business.
  • Membership dues are generally paid annually, but our Direct Payment Plan allows for monthly automatic payments from your bank account.

 

Extra exposure:

  • Display your Chamber membership plaque and decal
  • Take advantage of our Ribbon Cutting Service, the perfect way for new businesses to get noticed.  We bring some really big scissors, Chamber leaders, City officials and a Telegraph photographer.  Together with you and your employees, the result is a “free” ad in the local newspaper highlighting your business.

The Chamber works to create mutual success -- successful businesses,
and a quality of life that comes with a successful, vibrant community.
