Union Area Chamber of Commerce Membership Benefits
Union Area Chamber of Commerce Menu.


Members of the Union Area Chamber of Commerce receive many valuable benefits with their membership. We are a very friendly and community minded group and when asked why people join our chamber, it is for these very reasons.  Members also appreciate the chance to network with other members and volunteer in community related projects and events sponsored by the chamber.

We invite you to consider these benefits and opportunities and join us to realize them for your business.

  • Networking with other area businesses
    Networking at monthly meetings, events sponsored by the chamber and projects we do is so important to keeping your business visable, helpful to socialize with other business owners and find out what is going on in our community.

    At our monthly meetings, we go around the room and each of the 20+ members who regularly attend have 30 seconds to tell the group about their business and what is new and important.  Events are then published via email to members and posted on our facebook page to increase the exposure.

    What is telling is that before and especially after our monthly meetings, people stay and talk with each other, discuss issues and get business done! This makes coming to our meetings a great opportunity to interact, meet new members, hand out a business card and make contact with your fellow business owners.

  • Member listing on our website
    Our website reaches members and communities in MidCoast Maine and beyond every day.  Your listing includes what you do and how to interact with you via your phone, email, website, Facebook and Twitter.  Your listing may be included in multiple categories to better reach our customer base.

  • Inclusion in our Map and Guide
    Every other year, the Union Area Chamber of Commerce publishes a Map and Guide which is available at member locations and  reaches out to the rest of the state through various outlets such as the rest stops on Rt. 95, in our Kiosk and at events like the Union Fair and our workshops.

    Our full color, double sided Map and Guide includes our map with reference points to member listings and  advertising opportunities for members.  We print more than 10,000 copies and in off years, reprint as necessary.  This is a professionaly designed and powerful piece of literature members are proud to be represented by.

  • Monthly Meetings
    Our monthly business meetings are held on the last Wednesday of each month at the Badger Cafe and Pub on the Union Common at 8am.  Our meetings are entertaining, informative productive and efficient. Coffee and a muffin are included so come join us for a meeting to find out more how we can help you grow your business.

  • Group Advertising
    The Map and Guide is a good example of our group advertising opportunities.  But did you know we also have chances to advertise in our Christmas in the Country flyer and group advertising rates in local news papers?  It's true and when combined with the flyer being mailed to everyone in Union, Washingrton, Appleton, Warren and available at businesses in Waldoboro, your group ad in the Free Press becomes a powerful tool to reach your customers!

  • Educational Programs
    Twice a year, the Union Area Chamber of Commerce offers business workshops on Technology and Business related topics.  Our programs are presented by fellow members, professionals and people from government and academia  topics you need and want to know about.

  • Business After Hours
    Showcase your business with a business after hours event!  We have had several after hours events which were huge successes.  This is you chance to shine! Call for details!

  • Member use of our Bulk Mailing Permit
    Our members may use the chamber's Bulk Mailing Permit for a fee of $10 per mailing.  This gives members access to discounted postage rates for their mailings.
