Chamber ribbon cuttings are a great way to gain exposure for your business!!
To qualify for a ribbon cutting, the business must be a new member to the chamber, or a returning member. Existing or new members qualify if they are under new ownership, in a new location, have had a major remodel, or are celebrating a milestone business anniversary.
Planning your Event:
Click here to complete the ribbon cutting request form.
Enter in a few times and date options. ( We do need a minimum of 2 weeks to properly promote the event.)
Mondays through Thursdays during regular business hours are the best and the events typically take 30-40 minutes.
Once the form has been submitted, you will be contacted to get your event on the chamber’s calendar.
