Membership Meeting Sponsorship
Being a Membership Meeting Sponsor is a great way to promote your business at one of the Chamber monthly membership luncheon meetings with an average of 180-250 attendees – one of the largest and best Chamber meetings in the St. Louis area. Sponsors receive a display table within the meeting room to promote their business, they are one of only two sponsors allowed for each meeting allowed to place company literature at each attendee place setting, and as a meeting sponsor may give a 1-3 minute promotional commercial from the podium to the entire audience. This very low cost sponsorship opportunity is available to any currently active (paid) Chamber member but is limited to only two businesses per meeting and these are coveted marketing spots.

The Chamber provides its membership mailing list in a label format to any currently active (paid) Chamber member. The list in label format is sent via email for your own direct mail to the entire Chamber membership.
