Southern Dutchess Chamber
The MBA has embarked on an exciting collaboration with the Greater Southern Dutchess Chamber of Commerce. Partnering with the GSDCC not only helps us promote a favorable business climate for our members and the Millbrook community, but opens up Chamber benefits-at a significant discount-to all MBA members who choose to participate.
Benefits include, but are not limited to:
Access to GSDCC Health Insurance offerings starting at just $140 per month. Plans are available for both sole proprietors and groups of two or more. The options provide choice and flexibility of 14 plans; benefits range from basic to comprehensive coverage; a 365 day GHI Hospital Wrap plan; individual Health Savings Accounts; coverage options for employee, employee and spouse, employee and child(ren) and families and dental plans, too.
Visit the Southern Dutchess Chamber web site for information on the benefit plans.
Discounted advertising opportunities in Chamberviews, the GSDCC monthly newsletter which is distributed to several thousand individuals and businesses as an insert to the Poughkeepsie Journal.
Marketing & Public Relations
Marketing and public relations activities, including regular ribbon cuttings and celebrations to launch new product lines, commemorate anniversaries or business openings, and a press release service and other PR activities to help give your business greater exposure in the Millbrook community and beyond.
