Welcome to the Chamber

The Cook County Chamber of Commerce is redefining the Chamber experience! We invite you to explore the many opportunities for you, your business and your employees to join us and get engaged! From economic development to public policy, talent development to networking, the Cook County Chamber is leading the way.


Regarding property taxes, there are two kinds of people: Those who find the topic fascinating and those not paying sufficient attention.

For those with Tax Attention Deficit (TAD), the Cook County Chamber has a deal for you: Come learn about property taxes at our April 4 tax seminar, and we will ensure it does not leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Thanks to underwriting by Voyageur Brewing Company, the first 100 people to arrive for the April 4 seminar will receive a token for a free 9 oz. pour of the Voyageur beer of their choice.
So spend a TAD bit of time in tax discussions and be refreshed in both mind and body:

Come hear two experts on the property tax explain how the tax works in Minnesota and in Cook County, how it interacts with the state income tax and where Cook County tax burdens fall compared to other parts of the state. Join Aaron Twait of the Minnesota Center for Fiscal Excellence (MCFE) and Cook County Assessor Todd Smith for an in-depth look at this critically important tax, 6-8 p.m., Tuesday, April 4, at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. There is no charge, all are welcome, and the first 100 get beer tokens.

In addition to Voyageur Brewing Company, this seminar is made possible by the support of North Shore Title of Grand Marais, Two Harbors and Duluth.
