We would like to invite your business or nonprofit organization/club to become a member of the Spring River Area Chamber of Commerce. Our purpose is to promote and advance the commercial, industrial, civic, tourism and historical interest of the Spring River Area.
Why Join the Spring River Area Chamber of Commerce?
The Spring River Area Chamber of Commerce is the premiere organization advocating on behalf of all businesses in the Spring River area, which includes the cities of Ash Flat, Cherokee Village, Hardy and Highland. As a member you receive the following benefits:
Blue Ribbon Welcome – Ribbon Cuttings are a great way to quickly bring awareness to your business. The ceremony introduces you and your employees, along with your location, products and services to the community. The chamber sends press releases to the local newspapers and to the local radio stations to announce the BRW, and then we send a follow-up picture of the ribbon cutting to the local papers afterwards. We also help you in coordinating your event to get the maximum exposure to the community. Ribbon cutting ceremonies are available to those joining the Chamber for the first time, celebrating a major business anniversary, announcing an expansion, renovation or new location. And, we are open to other major promotions you may have. The events are promoted on our website and Facebook ,Twitter and Instagram, and the Chamber Board of Directors, Ambassadors and community leaders are encouraged to attend these events.
