Special Notice Concerning Membership
Considering the prevailing health and economic crisis, the Pontiac Chamber Board Members recognize the varying levels of stress it is placing upon our membership.
As such, the Chamber Board has made the decision to waive its membership fee for the year 2020. Any members who have paid the said fee already shall be reimbursed.
All members from the 2019 roll shall still be considered members in good standing for the year 2020.
If a local Pontiac business would like to join the Chamber for the 2020-2021 membership year, the fees for a Level 1 membership will also be waived. Please see the "Become a Member" page for an application form.
