Message from the President

Each year, your Chamber leadership sets aggressive goals that take the organization to new heights and the results are visible.

The Michigan Association of Chamber Professionals (MACP) awarded the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce with the 2010 and 2007 Outstanding Chamber of Commerce Award—Small Chamber Category. Among the chamber’s noted achievements were its leadership in regional and international business issues, expansion of chamber programs and initiatives, regional cooperation and organizational financial performance. It is through the hard work and dedication of our committee and board volunteers that we are able to achieve such recognition.

The vision of the chamber is to be a leading business resource in the Blue Water area. The chamber promotes our members through networking and referrals and provides businesses with providing advocacy, education and assistance.  This work is achieved by member volunteers who serve on our Public Affairs, Education/Leadercast, and Business Assistance Committees. Networking is essential for long lasting member-to-member relationships, referrals and returns and we offer a variety of monthly activities for businesses of all sizes.

If your business could use a RAISE – Referrals, Advocacy, Information, Solutions and Exposure – then joining the chamber of commerce should be a part of your annual marketing plan. The chamber offers online business directory listings, enhanced listings, mobile app and web advertising, and annual event sponsorships all designed to elevate your business. Our newly designed website delivered over 9 million online business directory referrals to our membership in 2012.  Ensure your business is associated with the long term credibility of the chamber and watch as we give your business a RAISE!

Come, join us!
