When a Chamber member decides to cancel its membership
investment, it is REALLY saying…
Please cancel our support of promoting a good public image for business
Please cancel our support of creating more jobs by attracting new
business and industry to McGregor
Please cancel our opportunity for further enlarging our business
Please cancel our support of the welfare of the residents of McGregor.
Please cancel our support of the tourism activities in McGregor.
