It’s that time of year when Knox County Chamber has a membership drive to renew memberships and get new members. People ask, “Why should I join the Chamber?” “What’s in it for me?”
Some of the benefits of joining our local Chamber are:
Networking with other business and community leaders
General membership meetings with informative topics of interest
Assistance with special business promotions and events, such as ribbon cuttings, open houses, or Business After Hours
Business referrals to Chamber members in response to inquiries received at the Chamber office
Kentucky state maps
Rental Property Owners Information
Training opportunities for businesses; i.e. Business Retention, Google training
Monthly Calendar of Community Events
E-mails about things going on in our state, county, and community
The Knox County Chamber of Commerce meets on the last Tuesday of each month, 11:45 a.m., Union College Student Center. (Or sometimes we are invited to meet at local schools and/or businesses.) Come join us for lunch at Union (only $6.50 per person) and an informative meeting. Next month we have scheduled the Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles as our speaker. We are also open for speaker suggestions and program topics.
