Building economic development in our area.
Membership benefits your employees and the community by providing your business with opportunities that create a thriving local economy.
We are here to listen to your business plans and needs and connect you with the information and organization that can assist you in the perfect solution.
Economic Development often requires advocacy efforts at the local, county, state, and even federal level. We are here to work for you!
The Winona Area Chamber, in partnership with the Minnesota Chamber, conduct confidential, comprehensive, one-on-one conversations with several businesses each year. We track on-the-ground business conditions. We collect data on what it takes for businesses to stay and grow in Minnesota. We identify private-sector solutions and/or advocate for public policy changes to address business concerns. This program is a wonderful and unique opportunity for us to learn about the needs, struggles, and successes of our businesses. We facilitate this through our Economic Development Committee.
ENHANCING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
We offer opportunities for local businesses to receive resources and direct assistance in order to impact local economic growth, job retention and job creation.
