If you are a business owner in the Marengo-Union area, or are considering the expansion of your business into this ripe market, then you need to join the chamber of commerce.

The Marengo-Union Chamber of Commerce mission is, “to be an advocate for business; promote business alliances; and provide services to our members which encourages growth and economic stability for the community.”

We are a catalyst for business growth and development in the Marengo-Union area through our advocacy and support services for our members. We are a common vehicle through which mutual interests of all segments of the community work together for the common good of the total community. In any community, it is from the profitable operation of business that all other benefits are derived. Only by succeeding in this goal can we provide jobs and produce the wealth to finance all of the governmental, civic, cultural, and charitable needs that our community is faced with every day. We do many things to accomplish this goal.

With a turbulent economy businesses, are faced with reduction of staff and lower profits. Time and money are at a premium for all businesses. The chamber helps its members with these issues by offering low or no cost opportunities to promote their business and venues to encourage net-working and new customer generation.
