MONEYWI$E Monthly Newsletter The theme for July is “Buying in Bulk: What You Need to Know.” Bulk buying can save you and your family valuable money. However, when done incorrectly, bulk buying has the potential to cost you money. Buying in bulk requires careful planning and budgeting to guarantee that you are getting the best savings while avoiding waste. MoneyWise7-2016.pdf

Chamber Ambassadors

The Board approved our working toward a way to help you get to know other chamber members and also help keep information flowing. We plan to start an Ambassador’s Club with interested volunteers, adjusting the ideas to fit our smaller organization.

The only requirement to be a Chamber Ambassador is that you be a employee or owner of a business in good standing with the Chamber or be an associate member and want to expand your knowledge of our business community. There are numerous ways to take part in this program. [[MORE ABOUT THIS PROGRAM ]] This gives you an opportunity to meet other chamber members, discuss ideas and problems in common, and strengthen both your business and the chamber.

Interested in knowing all the stats on Henry County?? Check this amazing site out!
Just select for Henry County Kentucky or whatever community or state.

If your business can benefit from our (Check) Henry County First campaign to keep money in Henry County, call the office to be a member. It costs the business nothing, and when a certificate is used in your business, let the Chamber know and a check is written for the amount of the certificate. We all win because that money stayed in Henry County. We have 15 retail businesses listed now, and we certainly could use more.

Maintaining your membership in the Chamber not only helps you, but it helps the entire community. If there were no chamber, businesses would have no unified voice to promote the county and its resources. Our executive director goes outside the county to meetings and events to promote Henry County. It is another arm to make sure Henry County stays successful.
