Each member receives a membership plaque to display in their business along with decals that can be placed in windows or doors to identify your business as a Chamber member and a community supporter. When you open the doors for your new, expanded, or relocated business, we will be more than happy to hold a Ribbon Cutting and place the picture in the newspaper and on our web site.
