What is the Bundle-Up Plan?
"Bundle Up" offers eight different levels to choose from, with each level clearly identifying the products and services it offers. Each increase in level provides more benefits and is a better value than purchasing them separately. The Bundle-Up program gives you the member control and choices on the level of membership that you want.

I am with education, government or a place of worship. Do you have a special rate for these categories?
Yes. Education, Government and Places of Worship meeting IRS status criteria can access the Believer tier at a special rate of $175 instead of $350 and the Supporter tier at a special rate of $375 instead of $475. The other tiers are available at the regular rate or purchase other services a la carte.

I have several business locations. What are my options? Are there criteria to meet to buy additional locations a la carte?
Depending on the investment your business wants to make with the Chamber, you can invest in a tier that includes the number of locations you have. For example, if you sign-up at a Partner Level member at $650, your membership includes two additional locations. If you have more than one additional location you can upgrade to a higher tier or buy additional locations a la carte. Multiple Business Definition and Fees: A Chamber member who owns 50 percent or more of more than one business entity is considered to be a multiple business owner. To be considered for multiple business locations the largest business must first be a member and their additional businesses can be listed if they bundle into a level that includes multiple businesses. If you have more than one additional location you can upgrade to a higher tier or buy additional locations a la carte.

Do additional locations receive a membership discount?
Yes. The membership dues for additional locations meeting the above criteria are $160 instead of $300 for the Believer Level tier. Higher tiers of membership are available at regular rates for additional locations.

Are the individual programs and services available a la carte?
Even though most of the programs and services are available a la carte, in most cases it would be more cost effective for a member to consider upgrading to a higher tier and receive the program sought after, as well as additional services. Click here to view our a la carte list.

Is it true that my membership includes sponsorship credit to be used toward a menu of sponsorship opportunities?
Yes. For members of the Partner level tier or above a portion of your membership is allocated to sponsorship. You may choose which sponsorship opportunities listed that meet your marketing and public relations needs.

What portion of my membership can I use toward sponsorship?
The sponsorship credit applies as follows: Partner Level, $650; Advocate Level, $1,000; Premier Level, $1,800; Executive Premier Level, $3,000; Chairman's Circle: $5,000. Sponsorship credit is an integral part of the tiered dues at these levels, thus it is non-refundable and non-transferable. There is no exclusivity for any sponsorship.

What is the best time of the year for me to upgrade my membership? Can I use part of my current membership investment to pay for my upgrade?
If you are a new member: After your joined date, there is a grace period of 60 days during which you can upgrade and pay only the difference between your new tier and your current tier. For example, if you join as a Supporter Level ($450 tier) and you want to upgrade to a Partner Level ($650 tier), you will pay $650 minus $450 or $200 more to be a Partner Level member, if you upgrade during the grace period. After the grace period you will be paying the full amount of your new tier. If you are a current member: Anytime during the year is a good time for you to upgrade. You will be paying the difference between your new tier and the unused portion of your current tier. For example, if you are a Supporter Level ($450 tier) with a renewal date of October 1 and on January 1 you decide to upgrade to a Partner Level ($650 tier), you will pay $650 minus the part of the $450 you did not use. You used your membership from October 1 to December 31 (3 months): $450 divided by 12 months equals $37.50, multiplied by the number of months used (3 months) equals $112.50. The $112.50 represents the used portion of your membership. $450 minus $112.50 equals $337.50, which represents the unused portion of your membership. So, you would be paying your new tier amount ($650) minus the unused portion of your membership ($337.50) or $312.50 to become a Partner Level member.

Will my renewal date change if I upgrade?
Yes. Your renewal date will change to the date you upgraded your membership. For example, if you joined in January as a Supporter Level member and you decide in June to upgrade to a Partner Level member, you will be billed the Partner Level rate in June of each subsequent year. Please note that your tiered membership investment is paid upfront and is non-refundable and non-transferable.
