Why Join the Chamber?

Member Dues rates: Our team is currently revamping our dues structure, so we have removed the direct link to the dues investment schedule. Currently, dues are based on the number of full-time equivalent employees, with different tiers of membership.  To give you an idea of dues, if you have less than 20 employees, your dues are under $400 annually, and in some cases half that.  We also offer a non-profit discount and a multiple branch discount.  
Please contact the SMMC office and request a dues investment schedule by phone at (207) 725-8797 or e-mail us your request here.  


Chamber Sponsored Networking Events

Chamber After Hours: Held on the fourth Wednesday of every month, 5 – 7 p.m., Chamber After Hours is a powerful tool for business to business networking, in a casual, laid back environment. (Exceptions may occur due to holidays, please check the community calendar.)

12 @ 12 Networking Lunch: Are you are looking for a way to meet with a group of SMMC members in a smaller group event? Hosted by the Southern Midcoast Maine Chamber in the Community Room, 8 Venture Ave., Brunswick Landing, Brunswick from noon to 1 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. For members only and by invitation.
