The Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to the economic growth of Sampson County, a healthy business community, and an outstanding quality of life.

The Chamber serves as a voice for the county and surrounding area businesses, uniting those who realize that through the Chamber they can accomplish collectively what no one of them can do individually. The Chamber works to build and maintain productive relationships with the business community by implementing programs that enhance the quality of life and spirit of the community. I always tell our businesses that one of the best things that they can get out of the Chamber is the opportunity to network, meet other business leaders in our community, and build a trusting relationship with them through our many programs and opportunities that we offer.

Join us in one of our biggest networking opportunities, Business After Hours on Thursday, June 15, at Tim’s Gifts here in Clinton. Bring your business card and let the Chamber work for you from 5:30-7 p.m. at 112 Northeast Blvd., Clinton.

Come out on Monday, June 12, at 3 p.m. for a ribbon cutting ceremony at Tucker and Tucker Towing. They have done a lot of renovations to their towing business and we would like to congratulate them for their expansion and dedication to our community. It will be located at 58 Donald Tucker Road in Autryville. We hope to see you there.

If you’re a member of the Chamber, don’t forget to display your membership decal. Did you know that studies shows that when a consumer knows that a small business is a member of the chamber, they are 63 percent more likely to purchase goods or serves from that company in the future and it increases your local reputation by 57 percent in the consumer’s eyes. Check out the new 2017 green membership decals and display them proudly… consumers notice.

I encourage you to get involved with the Chamber of Commerce. As an individual or business member, take advantage of the opportunities to network, advertise, attend educational seminars, and more. We are over 400 members strong and continuing to grow. Give us a call at 910-592-6177 and let us be a part of your business or organization today.
