We've entered the world of Social Media
Well at last we are now on facebook. Check out our new page. We will try to use this as well as every other way we can to communicate more effectively with our membership as well as promote our members and publicize local events. [more]
What are you waiting for? Come and join
Full membership starts at $50.00 per calendar year and includes your listings on the community calendar and places your business in front of potential customers and clients. We also offer affiliate memberships for individuals and seniors. As members of the G-JCCOC businesses are eligible to place a banner ad on our Welcome Center page including a link to their own website for a very nominal fee. The Welcome Center is the most visited page on this site so this would probably be the most cost effective advertising dollars you will spend all year. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE CHAMBER DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY PARTICULAR CANDIDATE, POLICY OR POLITICAL PARTY. WE ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE US CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
Jackson County Has a new website
The new Jackson County website has been up and running for awhile now. This is the result of a lot of hard work by many parties including representatives from Jackson County Government, the chamber, Concise Logic and Dodson's Branch Graphics. I think the outcome speaks for itself. We have links between both the chamber and the county sites as well as to many other useful resources to help keep everyone informed of what a great place Jackson County really is. One of the new features is our interconnected calendar of events. Thanks to the unique programing skills of Concise Logic the calendars for both the chamber and the county sites pull information from the same database. This means that an event entered on either site is visible on both. Also both sites now have links to Edge Trekker which is a great new tool to help attract tourists to Jackson County. All in all this is another example of what we can achieve by working together. Check it out.... [more]
Exciting Tourism Opportunity
With projections of hundreds of thousands of visitors from practically every state in the union during its first year of operation alone Cummins Falls State Park along with other attractions is set to make tourism the growth industry in Jackson County. The key to capitalizing on this opportunity is promotion. If you are in a business that can profit by this coming tidal wave of tourists then you need to take advantage of "Edge Trekker". Edge Trekker is a tremendous tool administered through the Alliance for the Cumberlands for promotion of tourism in the Upper Cumberland region. The Alliance originally represented only counties which actually sat at least partially on the Cumberland Plateau but through some efforts and investments by TTU's Tech REDI program Jackson County along with others are now also being severed by the alliance. Now we need to make sure we get all of our county attractions listed so they will be visible to people planning trips to our area. So if you have a restaurant with a unique and local flare (NO CHAINS PLEASE), a quant retail shop, historic site, B & B, or cultural event that you want the world to know about please contact the chamber so we can get you on the site. Best of all this is FREE SERVICE to any attraction in Jackson County. Even though you don't have to be a chamber member to participate why not be a part of a group working in conjunction with so many like minded organizations to improve the economic outlook of Jackson County? Our membership dues are much less than surrounding areas. We meet the second Thursday night of each month at 6:00 P.M. at 107 East Gore Ave. also if you're one of the many talented pickers in the area come on down to one of our "Jammin at The Chamber" sessions on any of the other Thursday nights of the month. Everyone is always welcome and as always its FREE!!!
