What's in it for me? This is a question often asked when a business joins the Chamber. There are many direct and indirect benefits as a result of YOUR Chamber membership. It's fair to say that YOUR chamber does not "cost", but rather it "pays". One thing is certain - YOUR Chamber is constantly working on YOUR behalf to produce bottom-line results for the local economy through efforts in public policy, economic development, community promotion and networking.

In Your Own Words...
"The Willmar Area has supported my small business for many years, so it is very important that I give back to the community through volunteering for our chamber. I love being part of the Business Community and continue developing professional relationships with fellow members…and for me, these connections could lead to future business." – Carla Kahle Miller, Design West Membership Advisory Committee Chairperson  
My wife and I were considering moving from North Carolina to Minnesota. We have never lived in Minnesota, or even any nearby state.  This needed to be the right decision - for both of us. Ken Warner was able to introduce Anita (my wife) to several other like-minded individuals, and that was a swaying factor in her agreement to move to Minnesota. She has near endless opportunities to explore new forms of art or music, without even leaving Willmar. But, most importantly, she has a built-in network of artists and musicians to challenge her to grow in both forms. – Dr. Ken Flowe, Rice Memorial Hospital
"The reason we belong to the Willmar Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce is they are our ears and eyes representing us on issues that we can't possibly take the time to address on a local, regional, state, and federal level. We concentrate our time on taking care of the families we serve. The Chamber is there to protect us and let us know as a business community when there are things coming down the pipe that will affect us and thus the families we serve." – Nathan Streed, Harvey Anderson and Johnson Funeral Home
"As a 29 year member of the Chamber, I understand and realize the importance of having a "business voice" communicating to the local government, public, and educational entities. I view the Willmar Lakes Area Chamber Public Policy Committee as a critical element to that voice being heard and the business community also hearing their concerns. Just that committee alone justifies every business' membership." – Russ Bennett, Bennett Office Technologies
I recently moved to the Willmar area from out of state. While job searching, I discovered the Friday morning Chamber Connections. At the very first Connection I attended, I met several business people eager to welcome me to the community, and I ultimately found a great new career thanks to one of those connections. – Amanda Diercks, The Managed Assets Group
"The Willmar Area has supported our business for years and I am proud to be a member of the Willmar Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber is the voice of business when it comes to major issues that affects the business community. I have enjoyed being a member of the Public Policy Committee for almost 20 years." – Bob Dols, President Northern States Supply
