Members are encouraged to bring in their brochures, business cards or other promotional material for display. Other information distributed includes tourism guides, phone books, demographics, membership lists and much more.

Directory Service
The Tecumseh Area Chamber of Commerce works as a “personalized” telephone directory. Directory assistance operators regularly refer local and out or town inquiries to the Chamber. Membership helps to insure a business that their name is readily available.

Events
Events and activities sponsored by the Chamber each year may include: The Musgrove Evans Award Dinner, Golf Tournament, The Annual Meeting and Christmas Parade.

Gift Check Program
Chamber Gift Checks are an easy, turn-key gift check program that allows us to offer versatile gift checks, redeemable at any participating Chamber member.  The public has the opportunity to purchase these checks that can be used like a gift card.  The checks are easily redeemable by our members, who simply deposit them in their bank account.  Members could recoup the amount of their dues just from Chamber Gift Checks.

Members First Discount Program
The Tecumseh Area Chamber of Commerce offers a member to member discount program.  The program is voluntary with members being encouraged to develop a member discount and take part in the program.   This discount program is a great way to attract customers, build relationships with customers, save money and strengthen our local economy.  

Networking
Whether at an educational workshop, Business After Hours or a general membership meeting,  there are many occasions for you to network.  Networking is a great way to spread the word about your business and often is used to generate business building referrals.

Referral Service

The Tecumseh Area Chamber of Commerce works as a referral service for our members.  Since the Chamber refers members only, you must be a member to take advantage of this service.

Window Display
The Chamber window is available to members on a monthly basis to set up a display to advertise  their business.  This is a great opportunity for those members who do not have a store front.

 

Our mission is to promote and enhance professional and member interests and to
increase the general
 welfare and prosperity of the Tecumseh area.
