There are perks to being a member of the Mercer County Chamber of Commerce! We take pride in visiting and connecting with each of our members face-to-face as well as other avenues. We have a very active Facebook page that we post on frequently and the Mercer Chamber webpage is continuously updated. Also, weekly e-news letters are sent vie email for the public to view. Our Executive Director, Jill S. Cutler also hosts Chamber Chat on the radio and newspaper weekly. Monthly meetings and events are organized and scheduled to promote a sense of connectedness throughout our community.
The Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of citizens who are investing their time and money in a community development program - working together to improve the economic, civic and cultural well being of the area.
Any citizen who is interested in helping to develop the area (which means more money, more business, more jobs, and other better living for everyone) is eligible to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce. The dues structure is designed to permit individuals and even the smallest businesses to be members.
The work of the Chamber is financed by the investment of the members who support it on the basis of their size and interest in the progress of the area. We are partners with the new Conover Education Center of Campbellsville University and are housed with them at 1150 Danville Road.
These are just a few of the many perks that the Chamber has to offer its members!
