Each month, the chamber organizes an early morning educational meeting to provide information, upliftment, and networking opportunities. We have had well-known speakers and educators from all over the state come to share their expertise with our members. Be sure to bring a notebook to take notes. You won’t want to miss these. In the case of health risks, we may move this meeting to a virtual platform.
This event also gives you the chance to sponsor breakfast for the chamber members and guests. This gives you visibility and tax write-offs. You can sponsor breakfast for $50 or less. Do not forget to bring your business cards
Those outside the chamber are welcome to attend for $5.
Chamber Membership with Window Decal
Each member will receive a window decal you can display in your storefront window to show your customers that you are an active supporter of our chamber. If you do not have a storefront, you will receive a digital decal you can display on your website and social media sites.
Your hard copy will be distributed at monthly events, like Breakfast Club, Business of the Month, and other networking opportunities. Please let the director know if you would like one mailed to your office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each member will have the opportunity to join a small group of diverse business owners/leaders to meet with and discuss issues having to do with business or otherwise. Each group will determine when, where, and how often to meet. This is a great opportunity to network and to gain and offer support, skills, and knowledge.
