Welcome to the Chamber Family!

 

We are so glad you’ve decided to join your leading local business community source! Our team is honored to partner up to assist in your growth & development process – in any way we can.

One of the top questions we receive is, “what do I get for being a Chamber Member?” It’s a valid question, considering the fact that you spend money to invest in our support of you – every year.

For that reason, we wanted to make sure all our members have quick & easy access to review & take advantage of paid benefits.

Although we are always concocting creative ways to provide new & improved benefits, the following includes the current tangible benefits that are available for you to take advantage of – Now!

Meet, Scottsboro Nutrition.

Meet, Bloomin’ Muscians

But that’s not all, and we would love to feature you as well! All you need to do is answer the following 6 questions and submit a photo to Debbie at, Dashburn@scottsboro.org

  • How many years have you been in business?

 

  • What motivates you?

 

  • Why are you a Chamber member?

 

  • What’s an interesting fact about your business most people don’t know?

 

  • Do you have any advice for new business owners?

 

  • When you’re not working, where in Jackson County do you like to spend your time?

 

UPCOMING CLASSES

We care about your professional development and often coordinate classes that include training on everything from Marketing to Customer Service. Keep a lookout for classes offered by the Chamber both on our website and Facebook event pages. Often, classes are FREE & when they are paid classes, Chamber Members ALWAYS receive a discount to attend. 

 

INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER

Active on Instagram? We are & would love to help amplify you!

This is a newer feature we’ve added and members can sign up for the chance to tell their business story on our Instagram story account, which receives roughly 60 regulars daily made up of local community members throughout Northeast Alabama and Southeastern Tennessee.

 

NETWORKING EVENTS

We are always looking for creative ways to help our members connect with each other. Watch for the next “Plug Into the Chamber” event, which is a great way to do that, but feel free to keep tabs on our Facebook event page.

Members are even welcome to approach us to host an event that we will gladly promote and help organize on your behalf!

 

RIBBON CUTTING

We offer all our new members a Ribbon Cutting. It’s a chance to launch your business within the community and the local papers are always present. The photo and “launch celebration” is then posted in the paper and our social media accounts. We often have businesses that offer free food and giveaways, but it’s not a necessity. Feel free to get as creative as you would like.
