MEMBERSHIP LEVELS

Your Membership. Your Choice.

“One size fits all” has never been a term that applies to business. Your business is unique and so are its needs. We encourage you to select the level of membership based on the opportunities and benefits offered: choose what best fits your desires and needs! Below is a brief description of each of the membership levels Greater Mankato Growth is offering.

Investing Membership
Investing members are businesses that recognize the importance of investing in Greater Mankato Growth programs and services, not only for the direct benefits they receive, but for the positive impact made on the entire marketplace. Investors are leaders in supporting current and future initiatives that serve the entire business community. With this option, unlimited representatives from your business can stay connected by receiving Greater Mankato Growth communications (e.g. weekly eNews, mailings, Minnesota Valley Business magazine) and may participate in Greater Mankato Growth member events, programs, and leadership/volunteer positions. Depending on the level of commitment you want to make, there are five Investing Member levels to select from: Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Copper.
