1ST FRIDAY & 3RD THURSDAY COFFEE CONNECT
Consider highlighting your business by hosting a 1st Friday or 3rd Thursday Coffee Connect. You provide a continental breakfast and a door prize and we’ll do the rest. You’re breakfast is promoted in the weekly Monday Email, the monthly E-Newsletter and a dedicated email just for your event. It’s a great opportunity to showcase your business. By inviting fellow chambers to visit your business you’ll have the perfect opportunity to discuss your products and/or services, introduce staff, offer a tour and make sure chamber members know all they can about YOUR business.
Contact the Chamber office if you are interested in hosting …

The value of membership with Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce has been immeasurable.
Our involvement has help to grow our business, increase our exposure in the community and connected us with people we now consider family.
We originally joined the LACC to participate in the Chamber coordinated West Oakland Regional Job Fair but have since become active on the Government Affairs Committee, Young Professionals Committee along with attending many of their networking coffees, lunches and after-hour mixers as another way to connect with area business people.

I have been a member of the Lakes Area Chamber for 9 years now and I’m so glad I joined!
Not only have I grown my business through the many referrals I have received (many of them from the wonderful people in my networking group) but I have also grown my centers of influence. I now have a growing list of hardworking, fun, customer-focused friends in this community to call on when my clients need their services. Like anything in life, you get out what you put in. So, join today and get active!!

I love being a member of the Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce
To me, it provides the trifecta of benefits. It affords me the opportunity to be up to date with my local commerce growth to gain referrals, provides me opportunities of ownership in my own community to volunteer and gives me exposure to other businesses that I may refer to my own clients. At Huron Valley State Bank, I pride myself in the ability to assist my clients with their banking needs but also serve as a trusted resource adviser by matching them with my fellow chamber members for additional services that may enhance their ability to grow their business more effectively.
