New Member “Working the Room”
When attending your first General Membership Meeting or Mixer our Ambassadors will be on hand to greet you and get you started “working the room”.  An Ambassador will then introduce you to other Chamber Members at the event to help make the most of your networking experience.  

Complete your web page listing
Every member of the Chamber has an online listing on our website, the Chamber's online connection to a virtual world of business information. Your online listing contains basic contact information for your business, and can include one free link each to existing e-mail and web site address if you provide us with that information. It also can contain a 50-word description of your business and 12 searchable keywords, which you must provide. To edit your listing, please follow the procedure below:

  • Step one: Follow the instructions in letter provided.
    Now you are ready! If you have questions, we will be glad to help you complete your listing. Call the chamber office at 847-669-0166 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .


”The Chamber Connection"
Your free subscription to "The Chamber Connection," a monthly membership e-newsletter, is designed to keep members current on events and activities. You will receive the newsletter via e-mail each month.

Get involved and grow your business
We have networking groups that can help you to “fine tune” your networking opportunities in a non-compete atmosphere.

The networking groups are devoted to helping each business get connected, and the best part is, there are no additional membership fees to join. They work within themselves to look at various speakers and programs to provide forums and information specifically tailored to the many challenges of running a business. Finally, entrepreneurs will benefit from the networking groups to help guide those businesses on the path to success. For more information about the Chamber's networking groups visit the Chamber website to find out when and where they meet.
