What are the benefits to joining GUMBO?

GUMBO provides a forum for our stakeholders to meet with local, state and federal policymakers to share  concerns and provide suggestions on solving problems that confront our area. Our goal is to be a united force  working with these governmental leaders to develop policies that will provide for the future growth and  development of south Baldwin County. GUMBO members meet on a frequent basis with the mayors of Gulf  Shores, Orange Beach and Foley and with the members of the Baldwin County Commission. Continuous  contact with members of our local legislative delegation helps facilitate and focus interaction with leaders in  Montgomery, including the governor and members of his cabinet, such as the Department of Conservation  and Natural Resources and the Department of Transportation.  

Working together and through our full-time lobbyist, GUMBO provides a forum for business leaders  throughout Baldwin County to communicate effectively with policy makers who make decisions that impact  the future growth and development of our area and our bottom lines. 

How much does a membership cost?

Stakeholders are asked to participate at a level they feel comfortable based on the size and nature of their business. GUMBO Inc. is organized as a 501(c) (6) corporation, similar to a trade association or chamber of  commerce. Contributions or a portion of your contributions to GUMBO Inc. may or may not be tax  deductible, except for that portion used to cover direct lobbying expenses. Please consult your tax advisor  for a clarification on the tax deductibility of your contribution.
