Why Join

Grow Your Business via Networking

Chamber Membership gives you many networking options to expose your business, products and services to other business owners and community leaders.  Annual Events, Ribbon Cuttings, Open Houses, Business After Hours, Workshops, and Seminars are just some of the options available for networking. 

Bring Credibility to Your Business

Consumers are 63% more likely to buy and do business with those associated with a Chamber of Commerce.

Your Information Can be Displayed at the Chamber

We display your rack cards and/or business cards in our lobby at the Chamber. 

Chamber Member Email Subscription

As a Chamber Member, you can subscribe as many email addresses as you like to our list.  Members are updated regularly with important reminders about upcoming events in Shelbyville-Bedford County.  We won’t overload your inbox, and once you are subscribed you can always opt-out if you do not like what you see. 

Excellent Sponsorship Opportunities

The Chamber hosts and co-hosts several events each year giving Members several opportunities to sponsor, support and volunteer for community-based events in our area.  Not only does this create additional exposure and networking opportunities but it also benefits our community as a whole. 

Direct Referrals

We receive calls on a regular basis seeking assistance in finding a particular service, product and/or business.  Our Members receive priority when we provide referrals. 

Chamber Member Identification

You will receive a Chamber Member decal for your front door every year.

Each year you will receive a ballot of Chamber Board Nominees in November.  You have the option of submitting nominations to the Chamber, as well.
