JOIN THE CHAMBER
The Islip Chamber Of Commerce is a dynamic group, and we’d love to have you be a part! We welcome businesses, non-profits, entrepreneurs and resident members to our organization. If you would like to become a member or renew your membership, you can click below to sign up and pay the annual fee. New applicants are submitted to the Board of Directors monthly, to be considered and voted on before membership is approved and deemed valid and active.
Annual memberships run with the calendar year, through December 31st. If you are a mid-year new member looking to join, please speak with our Membership Director for details. Renewing members must pay for the entire year, there is no prorating. Don’t be late, your business will miss out and be excluded from the annual community calendar and other opportunities! If your membership is not renewed by March 31st, we cannot guarantee your inclusion in the Annual Membership Directory. To ensure your listing from dropping from the website, we begin accepting renewals in November.
Members will receive a listing and link on the Chamber website.
