January came and went fast, Welcome February! And we are moving right along…


I want to start by saying WELCOME to NEW Chamber Members, Johnson & Company Flooring Sales & Installation, Second Stride Inc, and The American Saddlebred Legacy Foundation.

The Chamber is gearing up for Leadership 2017!

I am planning the 2017 Leadership Henry County Class, and really looking forward to continuing this great program! If you want to learn more about the history, industry, government, agriculture, education, tourism and more here in the county this is a great program for you! The 2017 Class will begin with an opening ceremony at the end of March and will run through November. Leadership Henry County is a program formed by the Henry County Chamber of Commerce to instill in present and future leaders a sense of pride about Henry County. The program will bring about an understanding of the assets of the county as well as appreciate the di-verse opinions of the citizenry. Above all, the program will assist in developing an insight as to how we can all con-tribute to a better community. If you are interested or know of someone that may be interested, please let me know. The tuition is $200, which includes food and other expenses. We will meet once a month. You will be amazed at the information and resources you will learn about the county. Contact me by email or by calling the office for more information and to get an application. This is open to Chamber and Non-Chamber members.  PDF APPLICATION CLICK HERE.


Mark your calendars for the March Chamber Networking Dinner ~ March 28th at the Locker in New Castle. Damien Prather with the Six-Mile Creek Distillery, which will be located here in Henry County, will be our guest speaker. Dinner will be catered by “All The Way Shoppe” – Linda Aldridge. Cost - $20.00. Reservations can be made by calling the Chamber office 502-845-0506 or by email. Seating is limited so make sure to RSVP. We look forward to a great evening!


The Chamber will host its 2nd Business Showcase in April 2017 at the Eminence School Ed Hub! What a great opportunity for our businesses, organization & community groups to get their information out to the community and showcase themselves. This event will be FREE to the public. We are working hard to get this event planned and will have booth applications available by the end of February. Booth space will be open to Chamber & Non-Chamber members.

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.

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.
