Your membership in the Whiting- Robertsdale Chamber of Commerce is an investment in the future of your business. The Chamber works hard for you while you are hard at work!
The Chamber creates a stronger local economy with “shop local” initiatives implemented through our Merchant Division. Examples of this are Wine. Dine. Shop., Dog Days of Summer, and many other innovative events that bring customers to local stores and restaurants.
We promote the Whiting-Robertsdale area with events such as Oktoberfest, Chalk A Lot Art Festival, and Pierogi Fest, the largest and most celebrated festival in Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana!
We provide numerous networking activities, day and night, so that you can meet your future customers and clients. This includes the quarterly General Membership Luncheon, our Business after Hours program, a casual opportunity to connect with your fellow chamber members hosted by one of our member businesses, and our annual Installation dinner and silent auction, an elegant affair featuring dinner and entertainment at the Dynasty Banquet Hall. We also provide support to new businesses with ribbon cutting events, inviting our membership to welcome you and to learn about your business.
The Chamber helps you affordably market your business through our outlets – including a monthly newsletter, weekly e-blast, free billboard, social media, and our digital media board, which is shared in several locations in Whiting, including City Hall and the Whiting Library. We even host one of the longest running radio shows on WJOB!
