Benefits of Joining

Networking & collaborating with local professionals

What do monthly membership meetings, business after hours and volunteering at community events have in common? They all offer networking opportunities with other professionals who live and/or work in Summerfield – and, you’ll have fun while you’re at it, which is why many of our members tell us they look forward to our meetings, social events and volunteering with other members.

Community involvement / volunteer opportunities

Increase your company's visibility by participating in community events which include: Summerfield Founders' Day Celebration (every May); Summerfield Fire Department Stop, Drop & Roll 5K (every September); Town of Summerfield’s Tree Lighting (every November) and supporting the Backpack Buddies and Backpack Ministry programs throughout the year.

Online Exposure

A business listing and website link on this site is provided for every member, making their contact info easily accessible to other members and to the community. Ads for Summerfield Merchants are also placed in the Northwest Observer and members are promoted on our association’s Facebook page.

Guest Speakers

We periodically have speakers at our monthly meetings who update us on issues relevant to our community and our businesses and organizations.

Business Spotlight

Create awareness for your company and generate new business prospects by sponsoring a monthly general membership meeting. A meeting sponsorship allows for a 10-minute presentation about your organization to a captive audience. Sponsors are also recognized on the agenda, our website, and in an ad appearing in the Northwest Observer.

Ribbon Cuttings

Merchant members join with town dignitaries and community members to welcome new Summerfield-based businesses by hosting ribbon cutting ceremonies. We’ll take care of the scissors, the ribbon, the invitations and have a photographer there for the event, which provides a great way to introduce your new business or location to the community!
