Chamber of Commerce
The Madison Area Chamber of Commerce is made up of about 120 businesses and individuals who are concerned about keeping the City of Madison active and networking with each business. They support approximately 18 promotions a year. Some of these are Ag Day, Bird Watching Weekend, Summerfest, Stinker Days/Fourth of July, Golf Benefit and Health Fair, Heritage Day, Octoberfest and Norsefest, and a Christmas Promotion.
The Chamber is made up of several working groups such as the Board of Directors who meet monthly and makes all of the decisions on the budget and is in charge of the monthly meetings. At the monthly meetings(note, held the first Wednesday of each month at the Madison VFW Post #1656 building at noon) where there may be a speaker on a topic of interest as well as a general meeting of the entire Chamber.
A Retail Committee which plans and works on most of the promotions, makes decisions on store hours and assists the Board of Directors in many ways.
The Marketing Committee makes decisions about what specialty items should be purchased to sell and the advertising for each promotion. This committee also acts on economic development ideas and strives for more tourism for our area.
The Ambassadors are the social arm of the Chamber. Ambassadors do ribbon cuttings for new businesses, Business After Hours, annual meeting and party and any other social affairs necessary.
