It provides a searchable directory of members, an interactive calendar of upcoming events, and useful links to other informative sites and Chamber members’ Web sites. A link from the Chamber site provides a valuable access point to your own Web site, as the incremental traffic your site receives is likely to be from potential customers preferring to do business with Chamber members.

This bi-annual publication is a valuable guide for local residents and businesses alike. It provides information on Village statistics and services, government officials, park districts, churches, schools, and the library. It features an alphabetical directory of all Chamber members as well as a listing of member products and services, and offers an opportunity to advertise to the local community. Your message is wrapped in an informative and interesting reference guide that is used by your potential customers throughout the year.
