Business Spotlight: Each month one investor is chosen at the monthly luncheon to be featured throughout the month on our website, Facebook and email blast as well as mentioned during the Chamber’s regular radio interviews and allowed a short presentation at the next investor’s luncheon.
The Chamber’s website offers a wide variety of information to Chamber investors and visitors, including a business directory with investor links, event postings, all forms and applications for events and memberships, event photos, local tourist attractions, churches, schools and medical information for new residents and much more.
The Chamber has it’s own facebook page which is updated often with local happenings, member promotions and networking opportunities
Ribbon Cutting & Ground Breaking Ceremonies
Newly opened or re-opened, the Chamber will help with your celebration by inviting other chamber members community leaders and local media to your ceremony.
Monthly Investor Meetings
Monthly investor luncheons provide members a chance to network and be informed on updates of Chamber happenings and community interest through special speakers. We meet the first Tuesday of every month.
Our meetings are held at noon at Desloge City Hall. (Sometimes the location needs to be moved, but we give plenty of notice in advance.)
Our investors enjoy a catered meal, while being informed of chamber events and investor happenings. We have a featured speaker and a business spotlight each month as well.
Advertising & Sponsoring
What better way to get your name in front of your community than to advertise your business and what you offer. You can do this for an extremely low cost by various ways of sponsorship throughout the year. The chamber hosts several events and we are always looking for sponsors, whether it be monetary or by being present and giving a little “sweat equity.” Contact the Chamber for more information.
The Chamber offers five special events each year including Trivia night, a night time Golf Tournament, Labor Day Picnic, Community Yard Sale, and a Jingle Bell Run (5K Run / 1 Mile Walk).
This is a great way to advertise and promote your business!
