New Dues Structure: Membership Tiers
In order to better serve our members and community, the Monmouth-Independence Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center Board of Directors began to examine a restructuring of our membership levels. Following feedback through multiple open focus group sessions, we are excited to announce our new tier structure allowing members to best determine which benefits will enhance their business or organization and level of engagement. We could not be more excited to roll out this program over the next year as we work together to strengthen our local economy and community.
Key points on why the transition was made:
- Demonstrates member benefits in an easy-to-read format
- Makes dues more fair and affordable
- Highlights the value of membership
- Provides a method for members to utilize the benefits they want
- Meets the needs of different types of members while offering flexibility
- Generates fewer “asks” throughout the year
Sponsorship Opportunities: Members may now sign up for sponsorships for all upcoming Chamber events at one time. That means one payment, one time, once a year!
Benefit Forms: To be completed by members selecting the Platinum, Gold, or Silver tiers.
