After over 90 years, the Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce is still going strong! That’s quite an accomplishment these days when so many local iconic buildings and companies are changing names and ownership.
What has helped the MGCCI remain a viable part of the local community is the willingness of the members of our business, civic, education, faith-based, fraternal and other organizations to work together for a greater good. It is this collaborative spirit that has earned Morton Grove the accolades of being a great place to live, work and raise a family.
Established in the Jazz Age, the Morton Grove Chamber embraces the use of today’s technology (social networking, online video, electronic newsletters, internet optimization and more). This is blended with the tried-and-true common sense marketing techniques of personal networking at events like business after hours, lunches and breakfasts along with educational programs to improve operations.
The Chamber is pleased to have the Morton Grove Farmers’ Market as one of our committees. The market has become a focal point for the community to come together and let business prosper, just as it was when Morton Grove was a young farming community back in the late 1800s.
I encourage you to seek out a member of the MGCCI when you are looking to fill your needs for goods, services and more. Visit our website, www.mgcci.org, and Facebook page – Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce – to learn more about our members, upcoming events and the Chamber itself. Thank you for using this guide and supporting local business.
