Membership Criteria

Membership is open to all companies or organizations who do business on the Eastern Shore. The company is the member.

Your membership investment/dues are based on the number of full-time employees in your business or organization. This allows for one Primary Representative who is listed in the Chamber directory, receives one vote and mailings. There is no extra cost to include additional representatives who would receive Chamber email updates and may attend all Chamber events at the member rate.

Other Special Categories of Membership

  • Retiree Membership – is for individuals who were active in the Chamber as part of a member company. These individuals are allowed to join as retired members at a reduced rate, so they may continue to be involved in the Chamber after retiring from the company. Retiree membership dues are $56 per year.

Membership Investment Schedule

The Standard Dues Rate, which is based on the number of employees, allows one voting member, who receives mailings. These dues will be charged annually in January.
