Member Benefits

First and foremost, the Clinch County Chamber of Commerce actively strives to enhance the economic
development of the community.  Making Clinch County a great place to live and work directly effects your
customer base and your business.

Increase Business Exposure to New Customers

The Chamber of Commerce proudly serves as the front door to our community. We regularly promote the
community as a whole as well as specific community events through various sources. This not only increases the
community’s presence in the area, but also increases your business’s exposure to potential new customers.

Member Referral

Numerous requests are made each year for the names of local businesses, professionals, services, and other
establishments. Our policy is to refer only chamber members unless there are no Chamber members in the category
being requested.

Tax Benefit

Your investment in the Clinch County Chamber may be deductible as a necessary business expense.

Membership Directory

This guide lists all Chamber membership by business category and is sent to those who request relocation
information and is available to in person visitors.

Small Business Counseling

The Chamber of Commerce can help small businesses seeking assistance by referring the business to the Small
Business Development Center, where they will have the opportunity to make an appointment to meet with a
business development specialist who can offer expert advice.

Ground-breaking and Ribbon Cuttings

Grand Openings and Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies are available to members who open new business or those
members that are re‑locating or expanding their existing business. Chamber Board Members and local Officials will
attend to welcome and support the new business and your business will receive free newspaper coverage through
our local newspaper. In addition, Members enjoy free advice and assistance from our staff, in staging Ribbon
Cuttings, Ground-breakings, and other similar events.

Free Notary Public Service for Members

The Chamber provides notary services free of charge for all chamber members. Simply bring your document to the
Welcome Center during regular business hours.

Business After Hours

The Chamber provides an opportunity for the business to show off their facilities and products by hosting an
informal community gathering after the work day is complete. These events are designed to highlight the hosting
business and are perfect networking opportunities to establish new relationships and business contacts.

Drugs Don’t Work

Georgia’s Drugs Don’t Work Program entitles participating businesses to a 7.5% discount on their worker’s
compensation insurance premiums. The Chamber has many resources available to companies wishing to start a
Drugs Don't Work program in their workplace.

Presence on the World Wide Web

A Chamber of Commerce website is generally the first place of inquiry for prospective visitors who are searching
for lodging, food, recreation, and other products or services. As a chamber member your business’s contact
information and website address (if applicable) will be listed free of charge in our on-line interactive membership
directory.

Membership Plaque

Customers like to do business with firms that have a stake in the community that supports them. A Chamber of
Commerce membership plaque on your wall makes a statement. It tells everyone you are a home town business that
is here to stay.

Brochure Distribution

As a member of the chamber you are welcome to provide business cards and/ or brochures for display in the
Welcome Center.  Hundreds of people visit the center each year and displaying your business’s information
provides excellent exposure for your products or services.
