The Chamber’s Allegan Dollar program has been around for more than 15 years and are accepted at a variety of Allegan businesses. The program was set up years ago to promote local shopping and spending. The dollars work the same as cash and can be purchased at the Allegan Chamber office. The dollars make great wedding, birthday, or Christmas gifts, are a great way to say ‘Thank You’ for referrals, or even bonuses. If you want more information about purchasing or accepting Allegan Dollars please contact us.
The chamber is committed to helping businesses grow and succeed. We are very knowledgeable when it comes to helping businesses with start-up information and business and marketing planning. We also have a number partners and resource that we can provide to members and businesses when they need assistance with growth and development.
Each year the chamber publishes a Visitors’ Guide and Membership Directory that each one of our members are listed in for free. This full color publication is displayed across the state at other chamber locations, visitor bureaus and rest stops as well as member locations. Our directories are also mailed out in our relocation and visitor packets. They are also on display at our office for locals and visitors that are looking for local information and local businesses.

Celebrating the opening of a new business, a business relocation or expansion is very important to us and we do everything we can to help spread the word! When a business invests in the Allegan Community we aid them with promotion by scheduling a ribbon cutting! The photos and press releases that are generated from these events are then shared with our various sources of media for publishing.
We do our very best to connect the community to our members and increase awareness of local chamber members. We are involved with Connecting Learning to Life through AAESA and Allegan Public Schools, Silent Observer of Allegan County, Allegan County Community Mental Health’s Career Concepts Division and much more.
