Benefits of Membership

While our organization focuses on destination marketing and building brand equity for the Mad River Valley, it’s only through the support of our membership – businesses, organizations, and individuals – that we can be successful. That’s why the needs of our members are a priority.

We understand that everyone’s choice to join the Chamber is unique.  And that every member has the right to ask ‘what’s in it for me’, and get a logical answer.  The Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce offers a complete package of marketing, educational, networking and support opportunities for our members, while keeping the cost of membership affordable.  VIEW BENEFITS HERE>>


Our brand is BIG.  If your goal is to increase your exposure to visitors of the Mad River Valley, the opportunity to promote yourself on (275,000 annual visits and growing), via the @madrivervalley social media network (8,000+ followers and growing), in our emails (4,000+ subscribers), and in our new Visitor Center (400+ guests in Sept/Oct), may be worth membership alone.  But there are so many additional benefits!

Non-profits & Community Organizations

In addition to reaching visitors to the Valley with your messaging, we offer networking and communication opportunities with the area’s business leaders, as well as educational and marketing workshops that may be of great value to your organization’s efforts!


You live, work, or own a home in the Mad River Valley, and hold this special place close to your heart.  You do your part in supporting the economic health of the Valley by paying taxes, shopping here, dining out, purchasing products made locally, and attending events.  But, you want to do more?  Thank you!  Your contribution helps to Advance the Valley by adding dollars to our marketing budget.  The benefit you get is our sincere thank you, and the opportunity to join us at networking events.

Mad River Valley Marketing-Events

The MRV-ME program is a voluntary funding program that helps to support local events through grants, based on a competitive application process.

The Chamber community is invited to purchase one or more ‘shares’ in the MRV-ME fund, and participate in the decision process when the event applications are collected. There are additional marketing benefits for members who choose to contribute to the MRV-ME fund: Read more HERE>>

Event organizers (you must be a member of the MRV Chamber of Commerce to qualify) may download the application HERE>>

Applications for 2018 events were due by November 30, 2017, and are closed.  Grant awards will be announced in mid-December.

We are consistently evaluating the value proposition of membership, and welcome ideas to expand our benefit offerings.  Please contact Member Services Coordinator, Ginger Berkelhamer to discuss.
