Exclusive Chamber Membership Opportunities

The Chamber displays an alphabetical list and a categorical list on our website that includes contact information for all member businesses. The Chamber also offers a program accessible via our website to promote member businesses to citizens and visitors to Carthage. This program displays your information next to a map for shoppers’ convenience. Finally, all members are welcome and encouraged to link their Facebook pages to the Chamber Facebook page to promote and market their businesses.
