Chamber launches

annual membership drive

The Danville-Boyle County Chamber of Commerce launched its annual membership drive Oct. 14.

Chamber ambassadors will be contacting local business owners to invite them to become Chamber members.

The local Chamber recently received awards from the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Executives for "Outstanding Web Site" and "Best Membership Retention and Membership Growth" for 2003, according to Sheila Horn, Chamber membership director.

"As a member of the Chamber your business automatically becomes a part of this award winning Web site," Horn said. "The Chamber Web site receives more than 3,000 visits per month on average so this is a great way to publicize your business."


The cost of joining the Chamber is based on the number of employees within the business. For a business of one to three employees the cost is $132 annually. The membership drive will continue through Nov. 10. The Chamber hopes to reach a goal of 500 members during the campaign, Horn said.

For additional information, contact Horn at the Chamber at (859) 236-2361.
