Chamber membership is not one-size fits all

The amount of your membership investment depends on the type and size of your business or nonprofit. You may choose to pay annually (billed on your renewal date) or in monthly installments by setting up automatic payments through ACH withdrawal or credit card.  We’re always open to discussing ways to maximize your membership investment to suit your organization’s specific needs. We’ll also work with you on whatever dues payment option makes sense for you at this time. On average, our members pay less than $30 per month to access full membership benefits.

Have questions about what the correct dues amount is for your organization? Just give us a call at 617-244-5300.
