Grand Openings/Ribbon Cuttings/Groundbreakings

If you want to get the word out about opening a new business, relocating or even remodeling a business, let the Chamber host a Ribbon Cutting for your business.  It’s a great way for us to promote you and your business.


Business After Hours

Business After Hours is the premier networking event for business professionals. This program offers individuals the opportunity to share ideas and experiences while learning about other local businesses. It is about building lasting relationships in a relaxed setting that benefits you and your company.  Through added contacts and resources you'll get to know fellow business leaders and owners.  Beginning and growing business relationships is what these gatherings are all about…don't forget your business cards!


Chamber Resources

The Chamber ONLY refers its members to hundreds of prospects that call monthly.


Weekly Email Blitz

Chamber members can promote sales, special products and events through our weekly Email Blitz that goes out to over 400 e-mails. If you open a new business, have a grand opening, have a new product or service, receive an award or if you want to recognize a new employee, we can highlight your business. This service is free to our members with optional paid-advertising packages available.



The Chamber has partnered with local media outlets to offer free promotional ads for new small business owners.  Contact Debra Wintory at 662.378.3141 or more information or dwintory@wceams.com.

Committee Involvement
