Networking Opportunities – Get to know fellow Chamber members at regular meetings and special Chamber events. Chamber meetings are open to all members. There are many areas of specialized interest and expertise in which to participate. This is a great way for our business community to work together for our mutual benefit. We find that the more active members are, the more satisfied they are with their membership.
Online Exposure – Our website includes Nicollet Chamber business listings, organizations, and community information links; it’s used by members, local businesses, area residents, and visitors. Chamber members are listed for free in the Business Directory on our nicollet.org website, with the option of having a direct link from the nicollet.org website to their individual business website. Mini websites are another important online tool, available to Chamber members only.
Sponsorship Opportunities – Community event sponsorship of Nicollet’s Friendship Days Celebration & Fireworks Display, Nicollet’s Hometown Holiday Event, City Wide Spring Clean Up, City Wide Garage Sales, Wine & Beer Tasting Events and Nicollet’s National Night Out, just to name a few.
Participation in Chamber Bucks Program – Our chamber bucks program is designed to encourage shopping and doing business with Chamber members. (See the Chamber Bucks tab for more information on this chamber sponsored program.)
New Resident Packets – New Nicollet residents receive welcome baskets filled with promotional items from area businesses. Only Chamber member businesses are included in this advertising opportunity.
Referral Service – The Chamber receives thousands of requests for product and service information, and we forward the names of only Chamber members who provide that product or service.
