Testimonials

I am a member of the Otsego-Plainwell Chamber because owning several businesses under one roof can be quite a challenge. Especially with all the marketing that is needed. I have experienced being a Chamber member certainly helps to get the 'word' out in more ways than one to be very beneficial. Our local Chamber is a great "Community".

I recently joined the chamber. I have learned so much from their support. The best part about it for me is being involved in the community & the connections I've made with these amazing people who are all sharing their gifted talents.
