During the year, the Chamber holds many community oriented events that will help promote your business.You will also be provided with exposure through website listings and social media promotions. Your company information will be provided at the Visitor's Center as well as your location listed on city maps. However, our largest facet of promotion is through our e-news letter. The news letter addresses the upcoming community events and is distributed to over nine-hundred emails from Madison and Delaware Counties each week.

You will be provided with many networking opportunities, but our biggest opportunity you will be afforded with is our bi-monthly Breakfast Club. You will be introduced to the buisnesses in our community as well as the people behind them creating a greater sense of community and unity.

The community gathers to rally behind members during our ribbon cutting ceremonies. these ceremonies have quickly become the highlight for many members. We host these ceremonies when a chamber business has a grand opening, a re-opening, an anniversary, or special seasonal openings.

Annual Events:
The annual luncheon and awards banquet, golf tournament, and bowling tournament are just a few of our annual events to get excited about. This is a chance for members to come together for a night of fun and relax.
