Business Profile Page
Your membership includes your own business profile page that you control and manage on our website. This also acts as an online searchable digital directory for consumers and customers to find your business or organization. Keep it updated and visit it often to make changes and you will see results. With the enhanced web package, you can add unlimited pictures, a video, and additional content. Having another online presence is effective in our digital world today. Here is a video you can view VIDEO and you can download instructions HERE for your convenience.
Send us your news and announcements and we will toot your horn in our monthly electronic newsletter ChamberNEWS. This newsletter goes to an audience of over 3,000 people in the St. Croix Valley and we FREE to our members to share their news. You can find past ChamberNEWS HERE.
Ribbon cuttings are a great way to gain exposure for your business. To qualify for a ribbon cutting, the business must be a new member of the chamber, or a returning member after more than five years. Existing members qualify if they are in a new location, have had a major remodel, or are celebrating a milestone business anniversary. The Chamber reserves rights to make final decision on qualification. Check out one from at Stillwater Commons HERE, compliments of Pictures Over Stillwater.
Planning Your Event
Click HERE to complete the ribbon cutting request form. You must enter 2-3 date and time options. We need a minimum of 2 weeks to properly promote your event. Once the form is submitted, we will contact you to confirm a date. The event must take place Monday-Thursday during regular business hours and typically takes 30-40 minutes. The event must take place within 6 months of your join date or celebration. If your business is home based, the event can take place at a Chamber member location, contact us if you need ideas.

Also included are frequently used community resources, our cities, elected officials, and the previous year for the Chamber in review. This directory is mailed to all member businesses with the purpose of reminding us all to “keep it local” with easy access to the many great resources we have right here in the Valley!
