Membership Benefits

A Message From Our President


Did you know Otter Tail Lakes Country Association has been promoting this region since 1976? Forty years later, our organization is stronger than ever. Today, our membership is comprised of a wide range of businesses, organizations, and communities. We rely on the collaboration and collective action of our members in order to promote this region as a premiere destination to live, work and play. I’d personally like to invite you to join us!


As a member of Otter Tail Lakes Country Association you will receive benefits from a comprehensive marketing plan that would be too expensive and difficult to implement alone. For starters, all members receive enhanced profiles on our new, state-of-the-art, mobile-friendly website. We monitor all website traffic so members can evaluate their return on investment in real time. Membership has other advantages as well. Members can promote their business through our social media sites and email marketing campaigns. In addition, your business will be included in the Official Destination Guide of Otter Tail Lakes Country which is distributed across the Midwest and at 300 locations throughout our region.


In this day and age, our membership has to demonstrate value, and it does. However, some advertising simply isn't measurable. For example, most of our members are very serious about referring to other members. You'll be amazed at how your participation in this organization will increase referrals from other local businesses. Can we measure that...not very well. Anecdotally, however, I can tell you it is very powerful. Don't just take my word for it. Talk to some of our current members!


A rising tide lifts all boats. By increasing our regional brand awareness, we all benefit. Of course, doing so relies on the collaboration and collective action of our area businesses.
