Wetumpka Chamber News




The Chamber will be closed Nov. 26th - 28th in observance of Thanksgiving Holidays.


The Chamber Office will be closed Dec. 22nd - Dec. 26th in observance of Christmas Holidays with our families.



What they are:

Chamber Bucks are a valid bank check that spends just like cash and can be used at any Wetumpka Area Chamber member business. The program is designed to promote community members to "Shop Locally First."

 

Why Chamber Bucks?

Chamber Bucks make great gifts! Consumers can purchase Bucks for birthday gifts, wedding gifts, gifts for moms, dads, grads, college students, and for holiday gift-giving. The Bucks can be used to purchase merchandise, products, and services at nearly 250 businesses.

 

How Does the Program Work?

Chamber Bucks are like super gift certificates that are purchased at the Chamber office and spent at a Chamber Member business. After receiving a Chamber Buck check for payment of products or services, the Chamber Member processes it for deposit as they would any other check.

These are certificates that can be used the same as cash. They can only be purchased through the Chamber and redeemed at participating Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce businesses. They can only be used for goods and services. The certificates are good for 6 months from date of purchase. If you have any additional questions, please contact the chamber office at (334) 567-4811.

We are in the process of creating a brochure and a listing of Chamber member businesses that will accept chamber bucks!

Become a Challenger >

 



Beginning January 1, 2014, we are pleased to introduce a new program to allow members to support the Chamber at a 110% level.   

We invite our members to become a 110% Chamber Supporter. When members voluntarily contribute an extra 10% over their annual investment amount, it is a testimonial to the business community of their support of the Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce in serving the needs of its members, as well as promoting business growth in Wetumpka and the surrounding areas.  Our 110% Chamber Supporters receive special recognition on the Chamber website and selected events throughout the year.  So, these members not only help to promote their business, but also help the Chamberís role in promoting Wetumpka.


110% Supporters have invested 110% in the Wetumpka Area Chamber of Commerce. Please Patronize their businesses!
