Membership value Since 2006, Seacoast Local has been building the local movement here on the Seacoast with the incredible support of you, our members. With the incredible support of you, our members, we have been one of the leading organizations in the U.S. in promoting and building a strong local economy while engaging more conscious consumers and community-minded citizens. This year, Seacoast Local has developed a calendar of events and a strategic plan that is taking our mission of building a strong local economy and supporting the growth of locally owned and independent businesses to a new level of impact. Highlighted here are more accessible and valuable benefits for you, our members.

  Seacoast Local is looking forward to growing in numbers and in influence. We’ll do that by helping each other educate ourselves, our employees, and our customers on the value of shifting our spending and resources to locally owned and independent businesses, and by publicly demonstrating our shared commitment to building a strong local economy. Thank you for supporting and strengthening the important work of Seacoast Local!
