The Benefits of Membership

Membership benefits are designed to assist you with promoting your business and fostering valuable relationships throughout the community. Chamber members stay a step ahead of the game by being involved with all that’s happening in Forest Park.

PROMOTING YOUR BUSINESS

The Chamber offers its members a variety of ways to promote their business, products and services. A complimentary listing by category in the Annual ‘Answer Book’ is distributed to residents and local businesses, and given throughout the year to visitors, prospective business owners and residents. Advertising is available at a steep discount to Chamber members. Member E-Blasts and Facebook postings provide added exposure.

CHAMBER WEBSITE

The Chamber’s website provides visitors multiple ways to find members both alphabetically and by category. Member businesses are also listed under the appropriate ‘dining,’ ‘shopping,’ and ‘services.’ Category. The site promotes all members as well as Madison Street and special events. Links are provided to help folks connect to the Park District of Forest Park, the Forest Park Public Library and the Village of Forest Park and more.

SPECIAL EVENTS

Residents and area locals flock to Forest Park each year for the Chamber’s special events, including the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Forest Park Music Fest, Wine Walk & Shop, Casket Races, Sidewalk Sales and Holiday Walk. Some events are open to participation from Chamber members only, and members receive discounts on participation fees.

NETWORKING EVENTS

Meet and build relationships with other business owners, community members, village officials and potential partners at one of our monthly luncheons, ‘after hours’ and ever-popular Annual Meeting. Members can also request a Chamber member mailing list on pre-printed labels to help stay connected.
