Join the Chamber

Proud Champion of Local Business

COVID-19:

We need each other now more than ever.

We know that people are under a tremendous amount of economic stress right now. That’s why we’re willing to work with EVERY Lakes Area business and organization on membership rates and terms. We will not turn our back on anyone due to financial hardship. When you join the Chamber, you make us all stronger. That’s invaluable.

Right now, we’re working overtime on Lakes Proud “buy local” messaging, driving sales to businesses, connecting members to each other, organizing peer groups and webinars, and providing all sorts of resources to help our members be successful. We’re also driving consumers to our Business Directory for real-time member updates.

View our membership rates, which start at around $30 per month. Monthly payments are an easy way to make things work. Just let us know what works for you.

We are a 1,000-member team of regional businesses and organizations working to strengthen each other and the entire Brainerd Lakes Area. We come from all communities, sectors and sizes. We socialize, strategize and succeed together. Welcome to your Chamber of Commerce, one of the largest and strongest Chambers in Minnesota.

What I love (about the Chamber) is seeing people in the community come together to support each other... And meeting new businesses that I had not known about and partnering together.

Julie Gowen, JAG Interior Solutions

I cannot imagine not being a member of the Brainerd Lakes Chamber. The chamber plays such an important role in the things that happen in this area that have an impact on my businesses.
