Macomb Chamber app 

The Macomb Chamber App that many members have downloaded over the past few years is now outdated and will be going away. To replace this app and for quick chamber website access, members can simply use their mobile device's web browser to go to our website and, from there, set a bookmark to the homescreen.  This will create an app-like link to get to event registrations, the chamber directory, news, and more.
