    About our Sponsor – GrowthZone/ChamberMaster
    Our parent company, MicroNet, Inc. began as a provider of software and networking services in 1996. The company’s first commercial product, ChamberMaster, was developed exclusively for chambers of commerce and was released in 1998 as the first affordable SaaS (Software as a Service) solution. And due to popular demand from trade and industry associations, the company subsequently developed MemberZone and then GrowthZone specifically for the association market.
    Our customers’ organizations range in size from 30 to more than 50,000 members and consistently rate our technical support and customer service as the best in the industry.
    We are headquartered in Nisswa, Minnesota, USA – a town noted for its scenic beauty, resorts, golf courses, and lakes. As chambers and associations are integral to the business health of any community, this was the perfect location to develop smarter software for associations.
