A Message from FACC Executive Director:

Happy Fall!
This is an exciting time to be part of the Fenton Chamber. The Fenton area is home to hundreds of businesses that serve customers around our region, across the country, and throughout the world. Given all of the changes and uncertainty of the past year, we are proud to support our members as they continue to grow and thrive.

The Chamber staff is busy preparing for 2021, and we look forward to resuming our full schedule of programming as soon as it is appropriate.

We hope you take time to enjoy the many outstanding scenery, parks and trails throughout Fenton, providing so many opportunities to take advantage of the beautiful fall weather.

As always, please let us know how we can be a resource for you. We continue to meet for lunch the first Wednesday of each month, and we hope you'll join us!

All the best,
Bridget Nations

Small businesses are vital to a local community and have always been an integral part of the U.S. economy and growth. With that being said, it's no surprise small businesses generate the majority of jobs in the US. According to the SBA, small businesses (500 employees or less) create 1.5 million jobs annually and account for 64% or created jobs. Throughout the month of November, we will be featuring Fenton Chamber member small businesses, highlighting the importance of shopping small, and encouraging community members to shop locally and keep dollars local. *More information on this program to come*


What to Watch For:

2021 "Explore Fenton" Lifestyle Magazine
+ Business Directory

 We are excited about this year's publication as we have partnered with Lunar Cow Publishing to offer even more benefits to Chamber members! A representative from Lunar Cow will be reaching out to the main contact at each member business to give information about the magazine and the opportunity to purchase advertising.

Reminder: we will print 4,000 copies of the magazine; one magazine will be direct-mailed to each Chamber member business. Magazines will be placed in high-traffic locations throughout the Fenton area as well as state-wide tourism centers. The increased digital component of this year's publication will bring increased exposure mainly to advertisers, but all members will benefit regardless. 

You will also receive a form through which you can set up how your business is listed in the directory. As a reminder, this five-line listing for each Fenton Chamber member is included in the price of membership.
