The Martin County Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit membership-based organization that advocates for, and works with, our member businesses. The primary reason that we exist is to do what is necessary to keep Martin County’s businesses healthy, thus ensuring economic, civic and cultural well-being. We represent 250 businesses and organizations of all sizes throughout Martin and surrounding counties.
We are not part of local, state, or federal government, though we do often partner with governments to accomplish economic/community development. We do not collect taxes. We are funded by membership dues as well as non-dues items such as event revenue, sponsorships, programs, and fundraisers.
Members of the Chamber serve on the Board of Directors, on committees and as Ambassadors. The board directs the Chamber staff to carry out the “plan of action.”
Our chamber is not narrowly focused on one particular industry, issue, cause, or activity. We focus on a broad range of activities and support for both businesses and communities.
We serve as the “welcome center” for the entire area in order to attract new businesses/industry, new residents and tourists. Many newcomers, job recruits, visitors, and business people get their first impression from their visit to the chamber. We are the ones who answer the phone calls and emails from people who have questions about Martin Country. We are an information resource for prospective business owners deciding about locating to our area.
We support new and existing businesses with educational seminars and networking events. We provide connections and promotional opportunities which are critical for the survival of some businesses.
There are many benefits for a business to be a member of the chamber including exposure, promotional and networking opportunities, referrals, website link, workers comp discount, Chamber gift certificates, among many others.
