March 22, 2012
SBAM added 97 new businesses to the association’s membership last week. Included in this 97 were 75 businesses from the Holly Area Chamber of Commerce, SBAM’s newest Strategic Partnership.
The Holly Area Chamber of Commerce joins 30 other local chambers of commerce and business associations from across Michigan that have engaged their membership with SBAM through the Strategic Partnership program. The Strategic Partnership program was developed to connect more small businesses with SBAM’s mission and member-only benefits. Members of the Strategic Partnership program have complete access to SBAM’s valuable member-only benefits, legislative advocacy in Lansing and Washington, D.C.; Focus on Small Business magazine and e-newsletters featuring topical stories and key business growth tips, as well as other member-only content.
“The growth of SBAM’s membership can be directly linked back to our continued engagement of local chambers and business associations who understand the value of an SBAM membership,” says Pierre LaVoie, SBAM’s Director of Strategic Partnerships “We are excited to welcome the Holly Area Chamber of Commerce and are pleased by the continued growth this program brings to our membership.”
