Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

They say "a first impression is the last impression." This ceremony is your ticket to the best small business PR campaign. Whether you are opening a new business, under new management/ownership, new location, remodeled or expanded, we can't wait to celebrate this milestone with you. Ribbon Cutting photos and story are shared across our platforms with more than 10,000 followers on social media. Learn more

During the ribbon cutting, we will also meet briefly to discuss the resources we can offer your business.

 

Facility Usage

Whether you require a small private room for a deposition, a 20 person training closed door area, or a place to host you next 40 person board meeting, you are always welcome to our spaces. All spaces include WiFi, laptops, projectors, display screens, and tech support. If you have catering, we have a full kitchen at your disposal. Room requests can be submitted to shoals@shoalschamber.com.

 

Business Referrals

According to a 2017 Neilson Survey from the Silent Gen to the Gen Z, 79% - 83% respectively trust referral advertising. The Chamber, for more than 100 years, has been considered a trustworthy source of information and so its members are considered trustworthy too. Referral marketing is a must have for both B2C and B2B to have a "seal of approval" from others to survive the market.

 

Education & Training

Seminars, business workshops, webinars, small business resource events and more are on our calendar quarterly. Chamber member trainings on business startup, financing, human relations, insurance, leadership, social media, taxes, and employee engagement are consistently available. Make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter to stay up to date.

 

Job Board

Our Job Board is a resource for our Members and we work consistently to share that across our platforms. Your Member Information Center allows you to post job openings instantly online. The Shoals community is made up of citizens that want to live, shop and WORK local. With trends shifting to remote work and the post-pandemic labor shortages, we are focusing significant effort on our job board.

 

Economic Development

We collaborate with the Shoals Economic Development Authority and the SBA to not only to increase the tax base of our local economy, but also recruit new businesses into our community.

 

Legislative Advocacy

As the Shoals' premier governmental relations resource, the Chamber is proud to advocate on for pro-business public policy at the local, state, and federal level. Our staff is committed to protecting our membership from harmful legislation and promoting policy that allows economic growth in the Shoals. Click here to view our full public policy agenda.

How Much Does Membership Cost?

It’s all about choice and improved membership benefits.

We have built a tiered dues system, which provides benefits based on the investment level a member selects.

Members choose the benefits that they want and need, then invest accordingly to their number of employees. The Chamber’s tiered system provides increased benefits with comparable dues – plus many new benefits, even for our Connect and Enhance tiers.

The tiered structure guarantees equity and choice when choosing a membership package that is important to your business and is aligned with the Chamber’s mission of developing a robust economic base.

We encourage you to contact us and discuss what membership level is best for you and your business and how to maximize your membership benefits.

Thank you for supporting our mission to develop a robust economic base!
