Membership Information

We invite you to become a member of the Pike County Chamber of Commerce!  Becoming a member strengthens the Chamber's efforts in our county to promote business and tourism. This helps our area's economy become more prosperous which means your patrons will increase in number and have more money to spend.

Chamber membership offers opportunity. You can attend many networking activities and workshops each year which give you the chance to meet other business and professional people and to tell them about your business.

The Chamber represents and promotes the area's economy and encourages business and industrial investment, broadening the tax base and providing employment. Your business interests are represented at the local, county, state, and federal levels. Our professional staff is knowledgeable about the issues of concern to the business community and will provide leadership and research assistance.

Your membership investment is important to the Chamber's operation, and so is your participation.  We hope you can attend meetings or work on a committee, such as the Ambassadors. If you can't find time to participate as often as you would like, the Chamber will appreciate your presence in our membership directory, and we now are offering advertising opportunities that will provide great benefit to your business from being promoted on the official Pike County web site, to advertising space in e-newsletters.  

The Chamber is a 501(c)(6) organization.  Although we are tax exempt, dues and sponsorships are not consered to be tax-deductible contributions, but rather a normal business expense. 

If you are interested in joining the Chamber, please contact Kaye Iftner, our executive director at info@pikeil.org or by telephone at 217-285-2971.  When joining the Chamber, please indicate if you would like to serve on our Ambassadors committee. Future committees are to be announced as well. Thanks from the Pike County Chamber of Commerce!
