Golf Outing

If your business would like to sponsor a raffle prize, for say the price of $50 or $100 (or any amount you see fit) we could do the shopping for you and put a card with the item indicating that it is “compliments of *your business here*”

 

Prize donors will receive recognition of their generosity on a table tent that day. This is an excellent marketing opportunity for your company to be in front of a target group. Our deadline for prize donations is Friday, August 6th and prizes may be dropped off at the Chamber & Visitor Center or we would be happy to pick up at a day/time that is most convenient for you.

 

Attention sponsors and golfers:  An email was sent last week regarding the event details.  If you did not receive Golf Outing information, please contact Lori

Young Professionals

Who are the Menomonie Young Professionals?
Mission: To grow young professionals’ involvement and influence in shaping and highlighting the Greater Menomonie Area as an area that is attractive to young, diverse talent. A community influenced by young professionals is a community that can attract and retain them.  The Menomonie Area Chamber of Commerce believes that the more informed, involved, and networked our young professionals are, the more influence they will have on what the Menomonie area is and what it becomes.

Advocacy

At the regular Menomonie City Council meeting on July 19th the council moved to amend title 3-3-5E Class “A” beer and “Class A” liquor license quota for the City of Menomonie, opening up 5 additional Class “A” liquor licenses (specific to wine) and 7 additional Class “A” beer license.  There were multiple parties who spoke in favor of the increased quota, explaining the benefit to local businesses and area tourism.  During the meeting, Chamber CEO Ashley DeMuth shared that membership has continuously expressed a need for more licenses to become available.  The Chamber has provided feedback to the Council for more than a year, asking them to tune into the business community’s needs.  To read the official Council proceedings from the meeting, click here: https://www.menomonie-wi.gov/vertical/sites/%7B658A84DC-EEE8-4DAA-86F3-51123954A378%7D/uploads/7-19-21.pdf.
