Business after Hours/Business During Hours/AM Buzz
These are key networking events allowing business owners and professionals to meet fellow Chamber members. Within your new Chamber network you can create a pool of resources as you exchange ideas, business cards and share common challenges/successes in the business community. Networking events are typically scheduled for the second Thursday of each month, with the exception of February, June & July.
Ribbon Cutting Celebrations
The Chamber is proud to recognize economic growth within Sampson County for Chamber Members by sponsoring Ribbon Cutting and Grand Opening Celebrations. The photo will be sent to the media to include in the local paper. The event will also be posted on the Chamber social media. Ribbon Cutting Celebrations are extended to Chamber Members that have been in business two years or less. We encourage other Chamber members to take advantage of this networking opportunity and celebration growth within Sampson County.
New Chamber Members that have been in business more than two years are extended the opportunity to have a photo taken with a sign that states, “Proud to be a New Member of the Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce.” The Chamber also sends these photos to the media.
Professional Development Opportunities
The Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce partners with the Small Business Center at Sampson Community College to offer a variety of seminars each year. These seminars are to foster community growth and development by identifying key issues that affect a healthy business environment and the quality of life within the community. We always encourage members to take advantage of this educational opportunity as well as bring your business card and expand your professional network with other attendees.
Many networking opportunities are announced by e-mail through the Chamber E-Blast and Monthly Chamber Chronicles.
