We help with all the planning and invite our members to join us through Facebook, email, and hard-copy flyers in the mail. These events are great for networking with other business owners, and they help to further connect our business community in the area, along with promoting the business where the event is taking place!
Leadership Hancock County is our leadership program we offer once a year. This program is great for businesses that are looking to promote employees into management or leadership positions. This program is also a great way to make connections with future leaders of our community. Essentially, these become generational connections that will further our business community. Leadership Hancock County teaches you how to lead and furthers your connections in the community.

When you join the chamber, you are granted access to our audience. We can provide email lists, mailing lists, and call lists for you to get information out quickly. Our audience also frequently checks our website, where you can post events, and once your event is posted, we will also put it in our E-News, which goes out to every one of our members! Our audience is one of the biggest reasons we are a valuable tool for businesses.
