Back to Business - Now offering monthly automatic payments
As of July 1, we have begun invoicing for membership investments again with the change in anniversary dates to reflect the free 90-day extension. We know that you are likely considering means to preserve capital and address cash flow challenges. To that end, we are now offering the option to pay your annual membership investment as a monthly auto payment. There is no convenience fee or increased cost. The monthly payment amount is less than $17 per month for the basic membership.
Your investment in the Chamber allows us to continue to do this important work for and on behalf of the business community. During this unprecedented time, we will work with you to ensure you maintain your membership. Please do not hesitate to contact our office to make alternative arrangements if you are unable to pay your membership investment. Our priority is that you continue to have access to the Allendale Chamber as we work to keep businesses afloat and our local economy recovering.
Working For You
For the last three months, when most businesses were forced to shut down, the Allendale Chamber went into overdrive, working around the clock, to support our businesses/organizations and the community during a time when we were needed most.
The Allendale Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors not only froze annual dues and billing for 90 days during the Covid-19 shutdown to support our members, but we also went a step further to provide every non-member business and organization in Allendale with a complimentary membership so they could access the information, resources and support services needed for business survival.
From the end of March until the June 2020, the Allendale Area Chamber of Commerce provided over $20,000 of complimentary marketing and support services to businesses and organizations in the Allendale community. We are confident Allendale is better positioned to recover economically because of the Allendale Chamber’s decision to do what we thought was right for the community.
Given these extraordinary circumstances, the Chamber is employing strategies to support recovery, resiliency and readiness for our member businesses and organizations.
We will keep working the #AllendaleStrong - www.SupportAllendaleBusiness.com economic recovery marketing campaign on your behalf to promote member businesses/organizations and educate the community about the importance of supporting local.
We will notify members first about new business grants and lending programs available. We will continue to filter information and share only the best resources our COVID-19 Resource web page and Allendale Chamber Facebook page and private members only Facebook group.
We will help you prepare for whatever the future may bring by utilizing virtual workshops/trainings and providing access to no or low-cost resources such as legal advice, human resource information and readiness templates and training.
Lastly, we will continue to offer all the valued benefits we normally do such as advertising, marketing, educational programming, networking, referrals and community leadership.
Now, more than ever, the community needs the leadership and resources the Allendale Chamber provides. Together, we will overcome this crisis and will emerge on the other side better and stronger than ever before. Thank you for your ongoing support so we can continue this important work.
