It's a year for celebration. Thank you all individuals and companies that have continued to support our mission and vision; we would not be where we are today if it were not for you all. Join us throughout the year in celebrating such an important milestone.
Between July 1 2015 and June 30, 2016 15 Chamber members reallocated $112,128 to Champaign County.
Be a part of the movement this year by taking the Local Purchasing Challenge yourself.
Shopping local is not just a consumer activity. By simply reallocating your purchasing dollars for products and services from a non-local vendor to a local one (again, not spending more), your company will be part of creating significant economic impact in Champaign County.
The Champaign County Chamber of Commerce has a program aimed to increase local consumer spending. It’s called the Commerce Card. The county-wide gift card program is the only one of its kind. The card is great for employee gifts and incentives, presents and more.
