Membership Info

The Put-in-Bay Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau has more than 160 Island Members as well as many Associate Members who have businesses on the mainland.

Full (Island) Membership is offered to businesses that have a physical business on either South Bass (Put-in-Bay) or Middle Bass Island.

Full Membership Dues are $200 per year and are due by mid-August of the preceding year in order for members to be included in the following year’s Put-in-Bay Island Visitor Guide. Island Members also pay Assessments each year, depending on the type of business. Every membership is assessed a minimum of $20 for the Business Owner/Operator. A copy of the current Assessment Worksheet is provided below along with a copy of our current Membership Application. These fees have not been increased for more than 20 years.

Full Members have a listing on our website and a link to their business website. The Put-in-Bay Chamber Executive Board, which meets the second Monday of each month, must approve membership applications before any benefits are provided.

Associate Membership is $100 per year and is offered to individuals, businesses, and organizations that do not qualify for Full Membership. Non-business owners residing on South Bass Island are invited to join the chamber as an Associate Member. Island businesses, however, are eligible only for Full Membership, not Associate Membership. Associate Members will be listed on our website. A copy of our current Associate Membership application can be found below. Associate Members do not pay any Assessments, only the $100 membership fee.
