The North Port Area Chamber of Commerce is conducting a year-end membership drive.

The concept of this membership drive is to encourage businesses that are not currently a member of the North Port Area Chamber of Commerce, to expand their efforts and make a commitment to help their business grow and be more successful.

The chamber wants to help by offering non-chamber businesses an opportunity to join the chamber and receive benefits that will help their business be more successful and grow.

Any business that joins the North Port Area Chamber of Commerce by Dec. 31, will receive three days advertising in the North Port Sun newspaper ($192 value), will be entered a raffle to win a 55 inch smart television ($420 value donated by Wal-Mart Supercenter) and the chamber will waive the $25 administrative free.

This is also the last chance that a business can join the North Port Area Chamber of Commerce and claim the membership dues on their 2018 business tax return.

Any current and active chamber member that solicits and secures a new chamber member during the membership drive will receive a $50 credit to their chamber account (for each new chamber member secured) and be entered a raffle to win the Business Spotlight in the February 2019 Communicator Newsletter.
