what is the chamber?

The Chamber’s mission is to enhance the retention and expansion of business throughout Grant County.

The Chamber is a voluntary membership-driven organization that unites

business, government, education, philanthropy, health care, and services.

The Chamber is a comprehensive group of

businesses and organizations dedicated to

fostering a healthy and vibrant local economy. To

cultivate an environment for business growth and

sustainability, the Chamber has pledged to provide

business support, networking opportunities,

advocacy, educational and peer outreach for the

business community. The Chamber with its 350

members representing approximately 11,000

individual employees, is a voice that is well

respected within the community.

The Chamber provides both a venue and a platform

to interact with others in the community to share

experiences, information, and practical applications

to help further business and organization growth.

In recent years, Grant County has shown itself to be

a shining example of how collaborative efforts and

innovative thoughts can benefit the greater good.

There is no better example of that effort than the

foundation of community discussion and interaction

found within the Marion-Grant County Chamber of

Commerce.

The Marion-Grant County Chamber of Commerce

was founded in 1909. Today, 110 years later,

the Chamber is a voluntary membership-driven

organization that unites business, government,

education, philanthropy, health care, and services,

creating a central agency which lends itself

to improving business and building a better

community.

It must be understood that the Chamber is people.

The Chamber of Commerce offers a place for all

who share in the desire to improve the community

and the conditions under which business is

conducted. It directs the energies to those who

believe that a community worth living in is a

community worth improving. The Chamber enables

those people to accomplish collectively what no

one of them could do individually.

The Chamber continues to serve as a key facilitator -

bringing government, education, business, industry,

not-for-profit, and community service organizations

together in meaningful and productive ways.

Chamber leadership is made up of committed

individuals from different sectors of industry, who

understand the complexity of issues that face

modern businesses in the 21st century. Chamber

staff is comprised of professional individuals with

a diverse background of skills that relish in any

opportunity to better understand the challenges

and needs of a member’s specific business or

organization. They are committed to serving all

members in a manner that adds value to their

membership and bringing useful resources and

organizational support to

the operation.

59% of business decision-makers are more likely to do

business with a Chamber member than a non-member.

why become a member?

Any business, large or small, can benefit from

Chamber membership. There are four legs of

membership benefits: business support, education,

networking, and advocacy. The support tools such

as the online Business Directory, e-newsletter,

Member2Member Discount all work to the member’s

benefit, at all times of the day or night, and are

relevant to all prospects. It can increase professional

development through educational events

such as the Sales & Marketing Seminar and

Business Growth Series. The networking

opportunities provided by the Chamber can

develop into strong sales leads and business

relationships. In addition, Chamber membership

provides businesses a voice in local, state and federal

government through its advocacy efforts.

An independent national study showed that 59

percent of business decision-makers are more likely

to do business with a Chamber member than a

non-member. That’s because Chamber membership

demonstrates civic involvement and support of

initiatives that focus on economic development, as

well as overall community advancement.

The Chamber’s online Business Directory has the

potential to increase traffic to a member business’

website as the public looks to the Chamber as a

reference when searching for businesses, services

and organizations. Member contact information,

link to business website, direct email access, driving

directions, and business description are included in

basic Chamber membership. Chamber members

can also submit press releases and announcements

to be included in the Chamber’s e-newsletter and

displayed on the Chamber’s website.

member industries and their needs for their employees.

marion public library museum

The Marion Public Library Museum is located in downtown Marion

adjacent to the Marion Public Library. The Carnegie Museum building

housed the original library that was built in 1888. When the new

Library opened in 1991, the Carnegie building was transformed into a

Museum that gives a glimpse into life in early Marion and Grant County.

The Museum underwent a major renovation in 2016. History Made

Here opened in November 2016 featuring a new exhibit on the Gas

Boom era. This exhibit is interactive and covers this exciting era in

Grant County history when gas was discovered and businesses and

industries flourished. Future plans are underway for new exhibits

highlighting historical events in the history of Grant County.

In addition to the exhibits, the Museum also has a collection of Fine Art

which includes paintings from both Richmond and Nashville, Indiana

artists. Several paintings are on display in the Indiana Room, the

Library and in the Museum.

The Indiana History and Genealogy Department is also located in the Museum.

The Carnegie Museum periodically features special exhibits and partners with the Quilters Hall of

Fame during its annual July Quilt celebration.

presented productions in a variety of locations

including the Hostess House Ballroom, the lodge

room of the IBEW Building, the Grant County

4-H Community Building, Eastbrook High School

Auditorium, Marion High School Auditorium, and

Carey Services.

Currently the Marion Civic Theatre calls the James

Dean Memorial Theatre home which is located

marion civic theatre

at 505 South Washington Street. Marion Civic

Theatre is a nonprofit 501c(3) organization that

is completely operated by volunteers. While

the Marion Civic Theatre is an important

part of the Marion community, it is the

commitment of hundreds of faithful

patrons, volunteers, and board

members that has sustained MCT

through the years.

In recent years, MCT patrons have enjoyed

top-notch productions such as The Music Man,

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Annie, Seussical

The Musical, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas

and well at the Wilson Vaughan Historic Hostess

House. It was designed in 1912 by talented African-

American architect Samuel Plato. This National

Register structure has retained its architectural

integrity for more than one hundred years. It was

built as a wedding gift for Capitalist and banker, J.

Wood Wilson’s bride, Lillian (Peggy) nee Pampel.

The Wilson couple loved to entertain and receive

a variety of notables to their palatial home, and

this is still the case today with the Hostess House

welcoming many diverse groups for meetings,

conferences, and special happenings. It is always

a treat to visit the third floor ballroom/gallery for

entertainment, art lessons, or an art exhibit.

The Star Financial YMCA moved into its current location

in August 2008. This historical location was formally

known as the “War Memorial Coliseum” built in 1928.

Restoring the Coliseum and adding on additional area

for YMCA programs makes this one of the most unique

Y’s in the state. The gymnasium can accommodate over

2,500 people and continues to host everything from

trade shows to high school basketball games. In 2011,

the famous “Marion Easter Pageant” was brought back

to life after an 8 year absence.

The YMCA also has an aquatic center which includes

2 pools, a water slide, splash pad, steam room, and

whirlpool. The state of the art fitness center features

35 pieces of cardio equipment, free weights, and a full

line of Technogym weight equipment. Group exercise

classes featuring Spinning, Silver Sneakers, Yoga, CORE

classes and Water Aerobics are some of our more

popular offerings.

At the heart of the YMCA is a goal to deepen the

connection with individuals and families in the

community. Engaging people as members is one of the

primary ways for the YMCA to accomplish its mission.

Through membership, individuals and families can

establish a long-term relationship with other members

of the YMCA and ultimately garner the enriching

benefits of a sense of “belonging” and a

commitment to the vital contribution the

YMCA can make in our community.

for Excellence in Nursing Services from the

American Nurses Credential Center’s (ANCC)

Magnet Recognition Program®. It is one of the

highest levels of Nursing recognition a hospital

can achieve.

Designation as a Magnet hospital places MGH in

a very select group of healthcare organizations,

both in Indiana and nationwide. MGH joins

approximately 8% of all hospitals in the nation

that have achieved Magnet recognition.

uncomfortable with a circle style scanner as

well as offering ambient experience for our

patients. The 128-slice CT scanner allows for

fast and efficient visualization of anatomy for

the evaluation of disease.

allowing high quality images to be produced

using less radiation. Images can be burnt to a

CD for the patient’s convenience or sent via a

secure digital transfer (cloud) to another facility.

gym area, in their room or in the transition

apartment. There is also an activities room

and dining room to help with socialization.

day utilizing at least two out of three different

therapies (physical, occupational or speech).

marion regional career center

College bound? Career bound? Need skills that

will help you get a job after you graduate high

school? Marion Regional Career Center is the

right place for you!

Grant County continues to meet the growing

demand for career and technical education

and other specialized training to help students

succeed after high school. MRCC, located at 750

W. 26th St. (at Marion High School), is part of

Marion Community Schools and offers a wide

range of courses, workplace certifications, and

advanced college credits. Students from all over

Grant County can take MRCC courses, splitting

their school days between there and their

home schools.

Earning advanced college credit saves students

time (because they will already have some

requirements for their post-secondary degree

fulfilled) and money (because it’s far more

expensive to “buy” those credits, by way of

tuition fees, at the college level). It also allows

students to explore potential

career paths before choosing a

college major or other career and

certification opportunities. That

can save them even more time and

money, because changing majors

can delay degree completion.

MRCC offers advanced college

credits in a wide range of fields,

including aviation, criminal justice,

construction, culinary arts,

cybersecurity, drafting, early

childhood education, graphics/

printing, health careers, HVAC,

information technology, landscape

management, logistics, and welding.

In addition, a student-run restaurant, the

Giant Bistro, 2201 S. Western Ave., is open to

the public Wednesday through Friday from

October through May, excluding school holidays.

The menu includes house-made breakfast

fare, soups, sandwiches, salads, and desserts.

Culinary students can earn advanced college

credit as well as a nationally recognized food

handling certificate.

“The Giant Bistro gives students the opportunity

to run a functioning restaurant for the public,

and if this is their career choice, it gives them

a leg up against the competition,” culinary

instructor Hans Huber said.

MRCC can put you a few steps ahead at college,

or get you closer to a career certification. It

can help you find out what career path is the

best fit for you. It’s an opportunity too good

to pass up! For more information, visit their

STAR Financial Bank, a family-owned community

bank, began right here in Grant County more

than 75 years ago. The bank has grown to over

$2 billion in assets with 39 locations in central

and northeast Indiana. STAR’s ties to Grant

County remain strong, and it is our mission to

not only grow profitably, but to fully invest in the

communities where we live and work. Central to

this ideal is a commitment to give back,

do what’s right and deliver the highest level

of personalized service.

In 2018, STAR employees performed more than

3,000 hours of volunteer work at 175 nonprofit

organizations in Indiana, including many in Grant

County. Continuing a tradition of giving back

to Indiana communities, STAR donated over

$640,000 to more than 100 Indiana nonprofit

organizations. Those donations were focused

on STAR’s three pillars of philanthropic giving:

Education, Arts and Economic Development.

With three branch locations in Marion, including

STAR’s training hub, we employ more than 30

of your neighbors while providing you with

convenient banking locations. As a full-service

bank, we have solutions for personal banking,

commercial banking and insurance.

At STAR, we are proud of our Marion-Grant

County roots, and we invite you to explore our

exceptional products and services and let us

show you how our innovative banking solutions

can work for you.

Mutual Bank’s roots have grown in Grant County

for 83 years. Founded as First Federal Savings

and Loan Association of Marion, Indiana on

July 20, 1936, the bank’s name may have since

changed but our mission has remained constant

--- we help people live better lives.

On January 1, 2000, First Federal partnered

with Mutual Federal to ultimately become

Mutual Bank in 2008. In 2014, the bank

celebrated it original founding in 1889 with

125th Anniversary festivities throughout the

entire year. We focused on our customers,

specifically how we shared in ways we have

helped them live better lives. In other words,

we celebrated the first portion of our name, not

just our last.

It’s not “what” we do that describes who we are.

Rather, it’s the “why” we do it that permeates

our identity. Like a true friend, our loyalty and

sincere commitment to our community and our

customers is our defining factor. Our mission

Federal Credit Union. The credit union was

started with 38 members, less than $100 in

the community and the credit union’s name was

changed to Via Credit Union.

first farmers bank & trust

First Farmers Bank & Trust is very proud of its

association with the Marion-Grant County Chamber

of Commerce and considers the operation an integral

part of its success in Grant County. Based in the

west side of the county in Converse, First Farmers’

commitment to remain an independent and locally

owned operation has led to impactful partnerships

and cooperative business development efforts

throughout the area. Our ability to be reflective of

the dynamic nature of our industry while maintaining

excellent service relationships with our clients has

allowed our bank to grow with the new investment in

the resurgent local economy.

The key to any financial partnership

remains the ability to effectively

manage and support the evolution of

an individual business.

While our organization traditionally served rural

communities with a strong emphasis on agriculture,

for the past 20 years we have shown more commercial

growth in communities very similar to Grant County

in both size and type of economy. Now serving over

40,000 clients from 35 locations in Indiana and Illinois,

First Farmers has been fortunate to become one of the

premier community banks in the Midwest.

The key to any financial partnership remains the ability

to effectively manage and support the evolution

of an individual business. Such involvement allows

the creation of lending and deposit services that

are specifically designed to maximize each client’s

efficiency given the demands of their individual

business. The ability of our organization to be

reflective of the client needs has certainly allowed

First Farmers Bank & Trust the ability to better

support local projects and business efforts in the area.

beacon credit union

Fewer fees, high deposit rates, and competitive

loan rates are just some of the benefits Beacon

Credit Union has to offer. Beyond our great

product offerings, Beacon Credit Union is also

dedicated to giving back to our communities.

Just one of the many ways Beacon gives back is

thru the Beacon Foundation.

The Beacon Credit Union Foundation is a nonprofit

501 (c) (3) charitable foundation and the

philanthropic arm of Beacon Credit Union. It

is funded entirely by the credit union. Grant

funding meetings occur in January and July. The

deadline to submit applications for consideration

in July 2019 is May 31. Organizations not

receiving a grant may re-apply for the next

grant cycle.

The Beacon Credit Union Foundation has

presented a total of $37,000 of grants to five

charitable organizations within our communities.

These organizations show a focus on improving

the lives of our members, friends, and neighbors

in the communities that we serve.

In addition to the Foundation, the Marion branch

participates in the Cancer Services of Grant

County Walk of Hope, volunteering for the

Walkway of Lights during the holiday season,

and is active within the CSA-Community School

of the Arts and Junior Achievement. Beacon

Credit Union is proud to service our

community and provide our members

& area with a friendly, professional

staff. We enjoy being part of all of

the communities we serve, and we

are enthusiastic about joining other

organizations committed to

bettering Indiana.
