Why Join the Chamber of Commerce?

Networking Opportunities

Member Spotlight

The Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce offers over 100 networking opportunities to Chamber members each year

Twice a month, on the first and last Tuesday at 11:30am the Chamber recognizes a Chamber member through a Member Spotlight. We encourage other Chamber members, Ambassadors and Committee members to join us as we celebrate and thank a fellow Chamber member for their support of the Chamber and contribution to Sampson County.

All Member Spotlights are highlighted on our Facebook page and in both The Sampson Independent and The Sampson Weekly newspapers. Chamber members are chosen at random for Member Spotlight and must have been Chamber members for at least 2 consecutive years.

Business After Hours

Business After Hours is the premier networking event through the Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce. By hosting, you’ll have the opportunity to engage with other local business professionals without the distraction of the work day. Discuss and share ideas and build relationships in a relaxed setting! This event is also a great way to promote your business and services to the community.

Business after Hours are typically hosted for 1.5 hours directly after the work day (ex: beginning at 5:30pm-7:00pm) with refreshments provided by hosting Chamber member. Schedule your Business after Hours today!

Ribbon Cutting / Grand Opening Celebrations


The Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize economic growth within Sampson County. Ribbon Cuttings hosted by the Chamber are exclusive for Chamber members that have been in business for less than two years. Hosting a Ribbon Cutting is a great way to help promote a new business to the community. Please see our Ribbon Cutting Packages to decide which fits your needs the best!

Grand Re-Opening Celebrations are available to all Chamber members. See below for more information.
