BUSINESS BUILDING
“When I came to Chicago in 2013 I was starting a new career in a new city. I needed to meet more people and become involved in my community. The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce has been the springboard to developing my business and my network, while at the same time allowing me to be an active member of my neighborhood.”

Jonathan Mayotte | Thornton Powell Insurance

MARKETING, EVENTS & VISIBILITY
“The LPCC is a great way to connect with the business community in Lincoln Park through their Coffee Connections and other events. Their value-added resources such as the street pole banners, website hot deals and email blasts can help gain visibility for your business. I recommend becoming a member of the LPCC.”

Wesley Yee | Massage Envy Spa

LEADERSHIP & GROWTH
“After relocating to Chicago and starting a new job, I was desperate to make connections in Lincoln Park.

I began attending LPCC events and my network immediately began to grow. Each time I attended an event I would make a new connection. I have since joined the board and stepped into the role of Chairman. Through my board service, I have gained valuable experience that has given me both the skills and confidence to take on a greater leadership role at my organization.”

Rebekah Paine | Victory Gardens Theater

ADVOCACY
“At Wintrust we are committed to providing our customers with exceptional service and results and I’ve quickly learned that the LPCC is the same way. The LPCC provided the support necessary for our required special-use permit ahead of major renovations to our building. They understand the value of businesses and the importance of businesses investing in their facilities and neighborhood.”

Amy Lemar | Wintrust Bank Old Town

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
“The Lincoln Park Chamber of Commerce operates at the intersection of Lincoln Park business, community and culture. LPCC involvement is a MUST for anyone serious about making an impact in these arenas. At the Chicago History Museum, we have benefitted by the many relationships gained through our work with the LPCC.”

David Deyhle | Chicago History Museum

SPECIAL SERVICE AREAS (SSAS)
“The LPCC manages the Lincoln Avenue SSA and I currently serve as a SSA Commissioner. The LPCC works with businesses and residents to make our neighborhood better. They keep everyone up to date on neighborhood news and developments. Together the SSA and LPCC are the center for Lincoln Avenue merchants and residents to collaborate. They provide valuable services such as streetscaping, marketing, security and façade rebates.”
