All businesses are welcome to participate in the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce’s 2017 Community Business-to-Business Membership Drive. The Membership Drive will start on January 1st and end on March 15, 2017. Chamber volunteers will invite the businesses to join the local business community through Chamber membership. There will be grand prizes for top volunteers along with networking and many other opportunities to grow businesses that are currently members and that are looking to join the Chamber.
This kickoff will also include applications for three $2,500 Façade Grants. These grants are available to small businesses that are members of the Chamber. Applications will be available online on December 28, 2017, and will be due on Friday, April 7, 2017. Printed copies of the application will be available at the Chamber as well (720 Krebs Avenue, Pascagoula).
There will be a drawing for any new member that becomes a member during the membership drive. Only businesses and non-profit memberships are eligible. The drawing will be for the following:
- Two Chamber website page ads (value of $1,200 each)
- Two Small Business Grants (value of $1,250 each)
New members will also be able to take advantage of other Chamber membership benefits. Those in the industrial field will receive a free outdoor booth at the Jackson County Industrial Trade Show on March 21st, 2017 (value of $400).
The goal of this membership drive is to increase the membership base and together grow the business community. During this time the Chamber will host a Community Awareness Day in banks and credit unions throughout the county and a Neighborhood Outreach in different shopping centers throughout the county. Chamber Ambassadors and Chamber staff will be distributing information on the Chamber’s resources for businesses and the community.
The Chamber Membership Appreciation Day will be held in April. Companies that have joined can network with the membership at a Business After Hours and Membership Drive Grand Finale.
Together the membership of the Jackson County Chamber of Commerce accomplishes many things throughout the year including the Jackson County Industrial Trade Show, Jackson County Veterans Day Program, Taste of Jackson County, Explosion of Excellence Scholarship Program, Leadership Jackson County and much more.
