NEW Value-Based Membership Investment Opportunities!
We are excited to announce a change to our membership structure. For the past 10+ years, the Chamber has not changed its structure nor has it modified pricing. Similar to other Chambers, we are moving to a value-based membership structure. Instead of your membership being based on the number of employees you have, you will have the opportunity to decide what's important in your partnership with the Durango Chamber, what your needs are in your business life cycle, and how you to take a leadership role in the business community.
FAQ's on why the Chamber is making this improvement: Why is the Chamber Making the Switch to a Value-based Membership? Members value a variety of benefits for different reasons

Signature programs will also continue: Leadership La Plata (LLP), Diplomats (DIPS), Young Professionals of Durango (YPODs), Leads Group, and Look Local First.
Many benefits are available a la carte, so you can choose the level best for you and still take advantage of advertising, networking, and training/workshop opportunities and pay as you go.
What are the payment options?
Pay via ACH, credit card or check
Choice of installments: monthly*, quarterly, biannually or annually
The Chamber works off a rolling 12-month period, so your membership anniversary date remains the same and you are paid up until your anniversary month in 2023.
The new value-based membership structure was rolled out in January 2023. Your membership anniversary month will be honored along with your rolling 12-month period, which means your billing period will not change.
Attend a Chamber FAQ Session to learn more about the new membership structure, or call us and we can help you determine what is best.
We’ll continue to share additional information with you throughout the year. If you have any questions, please contact us at 970-247-0312.
