Chamber Membership

What is the Fox Cities Chamber?

Founded in 1874, the Fox Cities Chamber is a nonprofit membership organization that unites the regional business community for greater economic impact. As the second largest Chamber in the state, our organization proudly captures the energy of one of Wisconsin’s most dynamic regions and transforms it into innovative programs and services to champion employers, economic development, and quality of life.

Why should I join the Fox Cities Chamber?

Studies show that consumers are 74 percent more likely to be aware of a business — and 80 percent more likely to spend money there — if that business is a Chamber member. Connect your business, grow your business, and lead the business community as an official member.

How do I join?

New members can join via our online membership application. If you have any questions about your membership or need assistance applying, contact Eric Broten, VP – Business Growth and Development at [email protected] or (920) 831.4908.

What geographic area do you serve?

The Fox Cities Chamber serves Outagamie, Calumet, and northern Winnebago Counties.

What is the cost of membership? Are dues tax deductible?

Annual memberships vary based on your specific needs and goals, starting at $0 for small businesses who qualify. Custom levels are also available. View our primary membership levels here.

Membership dues in the Chamber may be tax deductible as an ordinary and necessary expense. Dues paid to the Chamber are not a charitable tax deduction for federal income tax purposes. The Chamber is not a charity, but serves as an non-profit advocate organization for area businesses. With the passage of The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993, tax deductions for certain lobbying expenses incurred on your behalf by the Chamber are now prohibited. Effective January 1994, your Chamber investment is 95% deductible as a business expense.

What are the benefits of membership?

Chamber members enjoy a wide range of benefits including the opportunity to connect with businesses and local talent for strategic networking; opportunities for corporate sponsorship of Chamber programs and events to increase your brand awareness; engaging and comprehensive learning and development programs; member exclusive discounts, and much more.
