Hermantown Area Chamber Launches New Program

The Hermantown Area Chamber of Commerce is set to launch a new program with the mission to grow small businesses in the Hermantown area. Partnering with Hermantown Federal Credit Union as the sponsor, the program will award an enhanced chamber membership package to an area business.

Doug Ralston, Chief Operations Officer at Hermantown Federal Credit Union stated, “Hermantown Federal Credit Union’s niche is to provide products and services that will benefit small businesses and startups in the communities we serve. Our relationship is more than just an account or a loan; it’s to make sure we are a resource for growth by helping these business owners establish contacts in our community, especially with the Hermantown Area Chamber. We are excited to sponsor the Grow With The Chamber program and look forward to working with the business selected.”

“We are excited to bring this program to up and coming new businesses in our area. Creating a business climate that attracts new businesses aligns with our mission,” said Karen Pionk, Executive Director of the Hermantown Area Chamber, “Entrepreneurs place a lot of time and energy on day to day operations. With an intentional focus on small businesses, this program is designed to be more than a membership. Working with our sponsoring partner, Hermantown Federal Credit Union, we believe with their community minded focus along with the many chamber resources, the selected business will have an enhanced business growth opportunity.”
