Chamber Membership Investment

Membership in the Central Vermont Chamber of Commerce is a continuing commitment to economic growth and community betterment. Membership is an annual investment in the Chamber’s many efforts to promote the region and make it a more prosperous place to do business. The annual investment is based on a Fair Share Investment Schedule applied to all member firms. The schedule is reviewed annually and adjusted as necessary to insure that the organization has sufficient funds to carry out its programs for the coming year. Renewal is billed annually on or about the member’s anniversary date.
       A $25 one-time application fee must be added for new member processing. WOW! - Add $75 and get web advertising for a full year!
