BENEFITS OF JOINING THE CHAMBER
Quarterly Chamber Page in the Versailles Republican
The newspaper devotes an entire page to the Chamber on the first Thursday of the new quarter. Chamber members can advertise on this page at reduced rates. This provides additional visibility for our member businesses and organizations.
Visibility and networking is available through the monthly board meetings and Chamber events.
Individual counseling is offered to Chamber members through the Small Business Development Center in Madison.
Training and networking programs that help business and community leaders increase productivity and higher levels of success, all while helping them excel professionally.
When we receive inquiries for places to shop, eat, or any other service, we refer ONLY Chamber members.
This is another marketing opportunity for Chamber members. Members are invited to place items in bags given out to new residents in Ripley County. The bags are distributed by the Chamber and the local Town Halls. There is no additional cost to members for this service.
