Member Meetings FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions About MCCC Member Meetings

MCCC Member Meetings are a direct benefit of MCCC Membership.  These informal gatherings are an opportunity to network and be informed about what is happening in the business community. Topics range from infrastructure and land use to a management series for small businesses. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions and input to create an exchange of information. 

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Member Meetings are a free benefit for members only.
  • Every MCCC member is invited to any or all sessions.
  • Anyone from an MCCC Member company is welcome to attend.
  • RSVPs are requested for planning purposes but not required.
  • Come early, stay late, we leave ample time for networking with presenters and attendees.

Sessions are typically held on the following days:

  • 2nd Tuesday of the month – focus Infrastructure and Land Use
  • 2nd Thursday of the month – focus on Economic Development
  • 3rd Wednesday of the month – focus on Small Business/Management Series
  • 3rd Friday of the month – focus on Legislative Affairs

Will I be asked to provide my opinion on a topic during the meeting?

Each member introduces themselves with their name and company name at the beginning of each meeting.  Other than this, you won’t be asked to contribute to the discussion unless you choose to contribute, which we always welcome.

How is the information used?

In addition to providing information to our members, these sessions frequently inform MCCC positions on program initiatives and advocacy work at the local, state and federal level.  Member input, in particular with elected and government officials, provides vital feedback directly from the business community that helps to shape public policy.  This is especially true for business climate, tax structure and regulatory issues.
