Renovation/Expansion Must be a member of the Chamber in good standing.
The Chamber will...
Provide a staff member to facilitate your ceremony.
Provide large ceremonial scissors and ribbon.
Invite Chamber members, Board of Directors, City / County Officials, and Press.
Create a flyer and market your event though emails, website and social media.
Take a photo of your ribbon cutting to be posted to the Chamber's social media.
Planning your Ribbon Cutting...
Ribbon cuttings should be planned a minimum of 3 weeks in advance.
Business must be fully operational for 3-6 weeks before Ribbon Cutting is held.
Ribbon cuttings are typically held Tuesday-Friday between 9am-4pm. Based on our experience, events held during standard business hours tend to have the best turn out. We are not able to facilitate ribbon cuttings on the same day/time as a scheduled chamber event. Please review the Chamber's events calendar and discuss with Membership Director when selecting your date. The Chamber cannot guarantee attendance at your event, but will send out invitations in an attempt to get those mentioned above to attend.
You may want to consider hosting an open house in conjunction with your ribbon cutting ceremony. Invite your customers/clients, neighbors, family, friends and colleagues, promote your event on social media, and to other groups you may be a part of.
You may also want to consider offering event-only discounts, door prizes and/or giveaways. Please be sure to include this information on the Ribbon Cutting Information Form to help us better promote your event.
