Membership in your local chamber of commerce (That’s US!) makes you a member of the Ontario and Canadian Chambers of Commerce. The Huron Chamber of Commerce   believes that if we shop local we support local and we all benefit, but there are services offered outside Huron County that will help us save and grow for with the global economy.

I wrote recently about the rewards offered the chamber members with Esso Rewards, and the response has been huge. Let’s look at some of the other benefits available.

The most popular by far is the Chamber Group Insurance Plan. Whether you are one employee or 5,000, they have the best rates for chamber members. You can also contact our local Group Insurance representative Joe Carter directly. Email Joe Carter!
