Reasons to Join
When you join the Chamber, you’ll discover that meeting some of the key contacts you’re trying to reach is a huge benefit of membership. You’ll soon find yourself in situations where you can identify and meet decision-makers face-to-face. From seminars, luncheons, business expos, and various business and community committees, there’s an abundance of opportunities to meet new contacts, referrals, and people who can help you with ideas.
Visibility – When you are out of sight, your business becomes out of mind. The Chamber keeps your business at the forefront in the eyes of the business community.
Training & Education – Unless you have the luxury of a training budget or can afford to bring in local, regional, or national speakers on different topics, no other organization delivers timely programs at such an affordable price as the Chamber.
Low-Cost Advertising Opportunities – The Chamber offers a wide range of free or affordable advertising options and sponsorship packages for just about every business or nonprofit, regardless of how big or small their budget may be. This is a wonderful way to hold your marketing dollars accountable and see them working hard right before your eyes.
Money-Saving Discounts – The Chamber offers discounts ranging from health insurance to office supplies, to discounted phone service, to other items your business currently uses or will need. It’s not uncommon for a small business to easily find enough savings to recoup most, if not all, of their membership dues.
A Chamber researches and routinely discusses with government, politicians, and the media in order to keep people up-to-date on issues pertaining to our businesses and the community. What happens to your local employees and customers has an impact on your business, even if you’re a national chain.
Visionary – As a community leader, your investment helps create a prosperous economic climate and advances growth in the La Crosse Area.

Leader – As a key contributor to the community, your investment is helping support the Chamber’s work in shaping policy and connecting with other key decision-makers. You are helping create a voice that advocates for businesses in the La Crosse Area. You will receive two tickets to Oktoberfest in the Capitol, invitations to exclusive investor meetings, two Young Professionals All-Access Passes, two Forum All-Access Passes, and an invitation to our VIP Reception at our Annual Celebration.
Champion – As a role model in the community, your investment is helping small businesses grow while also allowing you to showcase what your business has to offer. As a Champion investor, you are helping increase your brand awareness and connecting yourself with your peers. You will be able to join our Connect in 60 meetings with other Champion investors, have the opportunity for additional listings in our Member Directory, and have the option to host a Small Business Council Meeting.
