I've been a member of the Munster Chamber of Commerce for 36 years. Our Chamber gives me great opportunities for networking with other businesses to help by business and meeting new people and making new friends.  The Munster Chamber is also a great resource for our Munster Community as well as other communities in Northwest Indiana.

I've been a Munster Chamber of Commerce member for about 9 years.  I served on the Board of Directors for the last 6.  As you attend events and serve on committees you will have the opportunity to interact with many other business professionals.  As others get to know you, they get to know your business.  This naturally equates with growing your business.  I have seen tremendous growth in my business through my Chamber relationships.  Some of these relationships have turned into friendships.  There are many intangible benefits to being an active Chamber member.  I highly recommend it!

Joining the Munster Chamber of Commerce provides a number of benefits to small business owners. Since joining the Munster Chamber, I have had the opportunity to get into my local community and meet other business professionals, business owners, and network on a consistent basis.  As a small business owner myself, often times I need a little motivation to go out and network because of the daily demands of running a business.  There are usually several events each month that the Chamber organizes and I try to make it to at least one each month because I know my return on investment will be higher the more active I am. The opportunity to join committees has also been a great bonus because I can connect with Chamber members directly and on a consistent basis. I am very happy that I made the decision to join the Munster Chamber and looking forward t continuing my membership for many years to come.

I've been with the Munster Chamber of Commerce 5 out of the 6 years I've been in business. I knew as a solopreneur witha service based business that had no brick and mortar location for people to visit, I had to get involved with the business community through the Chamber of Commerce in order to let people know who I was and what I did. I whole heartedly believe in our Chamber and it has proven to be a great supporter and grower of my business. More than that, I have gotten to know GREAT businesses and business owners in our community who I believe in and would recommend their business/produce/service without hesitation.
