Thank you for taking time to consider investing in your business through the DeKalb Chamber Partnership. Before you browse our investment options, we want to take a quick moment to introduce you to our organization. Our mission is to connect business, community, and education. We believe having skilled individuals in our businesses is vital for the business’s success, and when our businesses thrive so does our community. Our role is to facilitate the connection of those three pillars: business, community, and education. We do this through member services, taking an active role in policy and legislation, and building and facilitating partnerships throughout the community.

You will find six membership packages with a variety of benefits to support your business. We recognize each business has unique needs and the goals of one will be vastly different than another. We can customize your membership package to ensure your investment helps your business reach its goals whether that be more sales through marketing and referrals, advancement of your workforce through training and development, or enhancing your company’s image through community support.
