Dear Chamber Member,
If you are reading this article, it is because your membership is up for renewal soon. ~Your~ Chamber is proud to share some of the achievements we’ve made over the last year. We want you to see how your investment is working and hope that each of you know that our open door and warm hearts desire to learn more, how we can better serve you.
In the last year we have opened the Chambers doors in a couple of different ways. One of the more fun ones is proudly called “Commerce Coffee Shop“. Located in Pineville, on the square, Commerce Coffee Shop is open Mon-Wed each week welcoming patrons to stop by for a coffee, water or delicious baked goods.
Each week we welcome Coffee Sponsors who are able to help us keep the coffee shop open. Sponsors receive prominent mention via the Chamber’s Facebook page and are encouraged to display their products and services along the way. This has been a tremendous success so far and we are hoping to open in Anderson, late 2019.
Chamber Ambassadors joined us in August of 2018 and have taken the community under their wings, working to earn new members and to convey the needs of our existing members to the Chamber Administrative team. Many of you know D.Wayne & Janice Bearbower & can attest to their love for the County in everything they do.
Leading the Commerce Coffee Shop each week, ~Your~ Chamber Ambassadors are doing great things for all of you!
We also piloted a program for Students in McDonald County, forming The McDonald County Student Chamber of Commerce. We’re proud to say that the first year was a success & one project in particular became the result of the talents of this first year’s group of students. To learn more about their project, The McDonald County Gazateer, reach out to us by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have began holding monthly member meetings where we all come together to focus on the needs of the County, bringing resources to the meetings to educate us and help us further ourselves in the great community we live in.
As we continue our growth you’ll see our presence continue to serve our members. We are working to grow our resource library and to be able to best serve every business in the County.
Join us for a meeting, held the 2nd Wednesday of every month at 929 Business 71, Anderson, MO.
We are currently 175 members strong & ready to cross the threshold of 200 members!
From the Board of Directors, we hope you all know how much we appreciate your support of our efforts. Growing is a process and we are making this change for the long haul. Our great County should be on the map as passers go by. Help us help you bring them to our County to…
