Member Benefits

Chamber membership is much more valuable than any list of services and benefits could possibly communicate. That’s because the real value is in the relationships developed, economic development and advocacy on your behalf regarding business friendly legislation. These help to keep our local business community sustainable and growing! There are also a number of direct, tangible benefits that members can use right away. 


  Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies

The Chamber will conduct a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony using ceremonial scissors and ribbon, invite the mayor, and take photos of your special event. To further market your business, the Chamber will post a photo and brief summary on our website, in our eNewsletter, on our social media sites and submit to the Gates County Index.
