Chamber of Commerce Benefits of Membership

  • Networking – The monthly membership meetings -- whether our traditional lunch meetings, breakfasts or social gatherings -- provide the perfect business environment in which to do business. There can be no substitute for interacting with fellow business leaders in a professional setting.
     
  • Education – Monthly meetings of importance and interest to area business leaders make us all more informed and resourceful.
     
  • Workers Compensation Group Rates – Substantial premium reductions and high levels of service are offered to members through NOACC's Benefits 1 Group.
     
  • Referrals and Promotion – Businesses benefit from our continual promotion from within our office. Brochure displays, phone referrals and individual promotion of our member businesses occur on a daily basis. Personal referrals also take place at our monthly meetings. Our staffed office promotes Geauga County, and Middlefield specifically, to tourism opportunities.
     
  • Advertising – The Chamber offers members low-cost advertising opportunities on our monthly Chamber page as well as yearly within the Business After Hours structure. Members are also welcome to put flyers within our monthly newsletter on a periodic basis as postage weights permit.
     
  • Cooperative Buying Programs – Natural gas discounts, group rates on health and life insurance, retirement planning and discounted freight rates are all services offered to members by the Middlefield Chamber of Commerce.
     
  • Mailing List – Every member of our Chamber is entitled to the membership mailing list to offer fellow members special offers, discounts and special opportunities.
     
  • Enhanced Website – The Middlefield Chamber of Commerce is currently working to upgrade our website, providing more local information, calendar of local and Chamber events, links to member websites, home page hosting and advertising opportunities on the site.
     
  • Coaching and Mentoring – Where else can you find more than one hundred years of combined experience in one room? History, knowledge, background and skill are available to members in the sharing and interaction that are the hallmarks of the Chamber of Commerce.
     
  • Social and Civic Enhancement – Our Golf Outings, Steak Fry, Business Hall of Fame, Business After Hour Events, Circus hosting, Food Bank Drives, Family Christmas activities and many more are all reasons to make the Chamber of Commerce part of your professional life.
