Aspire to halt increase in member dues next year

In a move to help provide predictability and affordability for businesses, Aspire Economic Development + Chamber Alliance is not increasing member investor dues rates for the 2021 year.  2021 membership investment rates will remain the same as in 2020.

“We understand the unprecedented public health crisis and related economic disaster are straining businesses,” stated Christian Maslowski, Aspire president & CEO.  “A vast majority of Aspire member investors are small businesses, and we know the recovery on the horizon for 2021 will be felt on Wall Street before Main Street. Aspire can help ease some business anxiety by providing certainty in budget planning.”

Aspire is a private nonprofit business association, and the heart of Aspire’s mission is to drive business success and economic development.  Member investments advance Aspire’s mission in the community to retain and expand businesses, advance pro-growth policy and deliver services to entrepreneurs, small businesses and large corporations.

Member investments in Aspire renew each year on a rolling 12-month basis. In addition to enabling Aspire’s work to grow jobs and advocate for pro-business public policy, member services include special programming and exclusive business savings.

“Business success is very important to us and we are here to support all businesses in Johnson County and southern Indianapolis. In fact, we can connect any business owner to free, confidential business coaching and microlending to navigate the crisis or launch a new business,” said Maslowski.
