The Chamber of Commerce is committed to supporting our local businesses, promoting community development and economic growth in Hartford City.
It is a team effort by all the members. We work side by side on many projects throughout the year.
Being a member of the Chamber sends a message to the community that you care about the growth of our city. When you help us invest in Hartford City, it demonstrates a long-term commitment to those we serve.
The Chamber is the first contact that a newcomer or visitor will seek. The Business & Service Directory is given to them as an easy reference with the name, address and phone number of businesses and service organizations in the county. The Chamber members are highlighted in the directory.
The Chamber recommends members first when asked by the public for input. We take pride in each other’s accomplishments.
Chamber Luncheons are the second Wednesday of each month, and are held at a different location each month. They include lunch, a speaker, and give Chamber members a chance to make announcements which is added advertising for you. The luncheons last only an hour and are a good way to touch base with other local business people in the community.
Business After Hours are an informal gathering which has recently taken off and are hosted by Chamber members at their business after 5:00 p.m. Just another opportunity to meet other members and find out what services and help you may exchange with each other.
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
As a new business in the community, the Chamber is delighted to welcome you with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is an important part of your overall marketing and advertising plan. As well as a great way to kick-off a grand opening of a business. It offers an opportunity to meet key leaders in the community and get acquainted with your neighbors, Chamber members and potential customers.
Our monthly E-Newsletter keeps members only informed of luncheons, upcoming events, fundraisers, and other community activities. Members are welcome to also have an event mentioned and a service coupon included. All you need to do is call or email the Chamber office.
H.C. $'s Program
This program promotes shopping at home. These dollars come in $5 and $10 increments and make great gifts for all occasions. When you buy one of these certificates at the Chamber office you will receive a list of what Chamber members accept these dollars at their retail stores. They spend just like money; however, no change will be given for these. That way all of the money can stay in Hartford City. You could be one of the businesses listed as a member of this program.
