Calhoun County’s service industry continues to grow. From new hotels to new parks like Choccolocco, is your business taking full advantage of this growing local audience?

    Your Chamber of Commerce also serves as a visitors center. Make sure to bring coupons, menus or promotional cards by the Chamber office for display to be included in welcome packets. As an example, for the Dixie Youth Little League World Series we’re creating 576 packets. That’s just for one event, so bring plenty of items.

  3. IMG_7337Sponsorships are vital to the success of an event. Sponsorships help cover the cost of organizing the event, so proceeds can go to local non-profits and organizations. It’s also a way to get your business noticed. From signage to links and announcements, sponsorships range in cost based on the publicity received.

    Several community events also allow for vendors. Keep an eye on our Chamber Community Calendar and show your support of the community events through your participation. Many times, it’s a way to introduce a new audience to your products and services.

We’re all in this together, so more than anything, be in the know. A community’s success trails back to the people who make it up. If a community is proud and fully aware of what’s going on, it’s best for everyone, from the visitors to our neighbors and families. There’s always something to do when you Visit Calhoun County!
