  • Message from the CEO

  • Welcome to the Merrill Area Chamber of Commerce!  Merrill is a wonderful community because of its people and businesses.  It is a great place to live and work and the quality of life is outstanding.  Our economy is diversified and has room to grow and expand.

    As a former business owner myself, we selected Merrill because of its small town charm; it's a friendly, safe community that has kept its history alive through preservation.  It is home to several world-class businesses and some of the best "mom and pop" shops that  Wisconsin has to offer.  Its people and its businesses are generous and support community activities and organizations in ways that favorably impact our community year round.  And we are surrounded and enhanced by the beauty of nature.  From waterways to forests, Merrill is a relaxed state of mind.

    The Merrill Area Chamber of Commerce was established in 1911.  Our mission is to (1) support the area's businesses to grow, succeed and thrive; and (2) promote Merrill as a community to live, work and play for today and tomorrow.  We have strived to meet these goals through the use of multiple committees, ad-hoc groups, memberships with other groups and professional affiliations.

    The Merrill Area Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to strengthen our member businesses and community by building success through our partnerships with the manufacturing sector, retail community, professional services, governmental agencies and small business.  Together we work towards the solid, steady and continued growth of our community.

    The Chamber also acts as the official visitor-tourism center providing information and promoting events, activities and "must see" locations to visit when in the Merrill area - everything from festivals to trails, leisurely play, outrageous fun or simply relaxation.  We serve as Merrill's ambassadors of the community, providing calls and letters,  literature and answers about our community's businesses, life-style, schools, and our many resources - basically everything Merrill.

    Come see why I selected to call Merrill my home and why the best Merrill businesses are Chamber member businesses! 

    Best Wishes,

    Debbe Kinsey
    CEO
