Become a Member
Our membership follows an annual membership structure with a $50 per year fee (our fiscal year is April-April). In 2017, with our reach out to parents, your direct market, we have increased the benefits you will receive as a member! We will have a monthly email newsletter for parents and pop-up events for families. Our goal is to be the parent resource for all of their needs and we plan to meet their needs with our members’ services.
As in the past, to be a Lake Kidz Biz member you will first need to be a member of one of the three Lake County Chambers: Eastern Lake County Chamber of Commerce, Mentor Area Chamber of Commerce or the Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce. We look forward to having you as a member and helping you build your business!
As an organization, Lake Kidz Biz feels very strongly about giving back to others. We are open to new opportunities but will always provide assistance and help to school age-children and families in our yearly outreach efforts.
Every Fall the members of Lake Kidz Biz collect school supplies and choose a school system who will be the recipient of the school supplies. We have, in past, provided to Fairport Harbor, Mentor and Painesville school systems.
Each year in December our members are very generous and we are able to provide a Christmas to a local family in need.
Attend a Meeting
Monthly meetings are held for businesses sharing the same family customer base to exchange marketing ideas, develop marketing promotions, create cross promotional opportunities, and secure buying power for marketing purposes.
Meetings are held throughout Lake County on the first Wednesday of each month except the months of January and July when we do not meet. The meetings are held from 8:15am-9:30am.

If you are interested in taking an active role, we have several committees that could use your help! Please indicate your area of interest in joining the following committees:
