COMMUNITY PROFILE/PRINTED MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY
Each year we put together a printed Membership Directory for our Members that works as their Chamber phonebook. We work with different Chamber Members on this publication each year.
We are now alternating our spiral bound Chamber phonebook style Membership Directory and our Kearney Community Profile with Membership Directory each year.
2018 was the first time that we combined our Community Profile and our Membership Directory together. This not only showcases all the different key pieces that make Kearney amazing, but also showcases our Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce Members.
These two publications are put out once a year and we always need our Members help to make sure that we have the most up to date information for their business. We ask that you login into your Membership Information Center and make sure that your business name, representatives, phone number and addresses are all correct.
