Your Business. Your Community.

Growing your business more than selling goods and services. You need to reach customers, connect with other businesses, and stay up to date with legislative and cultural shifts. In short, you need to be a part of the community. Since 1940, the Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce has helped people establish their place in the community.

The Chamber Recommends: Our Members!

Yellow Pages are out, but our online directory of members makes it easier for people in Clark County to find your business.

Joining the Chamber gives you credibility within the community. People see members as engaged business owners looking to improve more than just their business.

If anyone calls or asks in person who we recommend our answer is Our Chamber Members. That person-to-person recommendation converts more than any Google search.

Relocation Packages

Each month, 30 - 50 people contact us to learn more about Clark County. We mail them the Winchester Clark County Book, a book with only Chamber members and additional information about the community. For an additional fee, you can even include your business's brochure. Relocation packages go out across the United States to businesses and residents thinking about making Clark County their home.

 

Advertising and Sponsorship

In addition, we offer a wide range of affordable advertising options and sponsorship packages regardless of how big or small the budget. Throughout the year, members have the chance to host events or be featured as sponsors. There's a lot of options. Give us a call and we'll go over them with you.

Connecting with Other Businesses

Winchester Clark County Chamber of Commerce Breakfast at Clark REgional

If we were good at everything, we would have no need for each other.  - Simon Sinek

We admit it, we are known as a bit of "social club." Our breakfasts, after-hours, and other fun events do serve a purpose though. Networking is a necessary for any business to survive. This is especially so in a small town like Winchester. We get to know each other at these events. We encourage each other to keep it local. We step back from our businesses and see the larger picture.
Come to a Chamber social event, even if it is just to commiserate and make friends. You'll find new pathways opening up. Discussing challenges and successes not only strengthens Clark County's economic flexibility, but sparks action for community building.

Community Building Through Service & Sponsorship

Many of our members are non-profits who joined to build relationships with businesses. Whether your business wanting to fulfill community service hours or an organization needing a sponsor for you next event, the Chamber can help you. These are not one-off exchanges, but lasting partnership that will make you truly feel part of the community.

Staying Up to Date

A large part of the Chamber's networking purpose is to keep people informed. We program classes that prepare business owners for specific challenges as well as educational opportunities that zoom out to look at the bigger picture. The Leadership Winchester class, for example, gives an in-depth look at government, agriculture, education, and more aspects of Clark County over a nine-month course.

Of course, we've got our finger on the pulse on Clark County. At our events you'll hear about the goings on in Winchester through casual conversation and the host's presentation. Our social media and community calendars are among the most active and up to date of any organization in Clark County.
