We are pleased to introduce a new program to allow members to support the Chamber at a 110% level.   

We invite our members to become a 110% Chamber Supporter. When members voluntarily contribute an extra 10% over their annual investment amount, it is a testimonial to the business community of their support of the Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce in serving the needs of its members, as well as promoting business growth in Wetumpka and the surrounding areas.  Our 110% Chamber Supporters receive special recognition on the Chamber website and selected events throughout the year.  So, these members not only help to promote their business, but also help the Chamber’s role in promoting Wetumpka.


110% Supporters have invested 110% in the Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce. Please Patronize their businesses!
