Happy Holidays from the Chamber Team!

Happy Holidays from the Chamber Team!

The holiday season brings us the opportunity to celebrate and reflect on the success we’ve enjoyed this year, while we look forward to what lies ahead in the new year.

On behalf of the Grand Rapids Chamber, thank you for your membership and continued commitment to our community. With members like you, we are able to promote a thriving and prosperous West Michigan for all. It is your time and investment in our organization that drives our work forward.

Over 130 years ago, a group of business leaders gathered to discuss the future of Grand Rapids – and in doing so, formed the Grand Rapids Board of Trade to advocate on behalf of area businesses. Today, the Chamber still works to address the needs of the evolving business community.

We all benefit from this next step in evolution, enriching and growing our business environment. By being an active member in the Chamber, you play an important and rewarding part in supporting our Chamber and community.

The Grand Rapids Chamber works hard to provide real benefits for you and your employees. Our team is well underway planning for 2020 and beyond as we continue working to make West Michigan a dynamic, top-of-mind region. As you will see below, our 2020 Membership survey is currently live. Please take a few moments to provide your feedback so we can tailor our efforts to best serve your needs. We can’t wait to unveil more innovative programs, events, and opportunities to continue creating great into 2020.

Your feedback is invaluable to us. Together, we can build a magnetic community and a business environment built for your success.

As we look forward to the new year, you are invited to join the Grand Rapids Chamber at DeVos Place for our 132nd Annual Meeting on January 28, 2020. We will celebrate what our members did to Create Great in 2019 as well as look ahead to 2020.

From the Grand Rapids Chamber team, happy holidays!
