Our program of work is designed to deliver value to our members and community using four specific methods: networking, advocacy, marketing, and education. We find it’s helpful to remember these methods with the acronym “NAME”, with the Chamber’s goal to help you make a NAME for your business in Atmore! We believe that by helping individual members in these four ways, that over time, we will help build a stronger, more resilient and vibrant business community.
The Atmore Area is a place where a handshake and a promise still mean something. At the Chamber, we host countless events every year, and each of them is an opportunity for members to exchange business cards, make a connection, and open the door to new customers. In fact, some of these events are intended exclusively for that purpose. Our Business & Breakfast and BA5: Business After 5 meetings are just two examples of convenient ways our members can connect with one another while learning about all the local happenings.
Many of our members are simply too busy running their businesses to focus on regulatory or governmental issues that might affect them. Fortunately, the Chamber is always working to make sure the interests of our business community are never ignored by key decision-makers. By working directly with officials at the national, state, and local level, we communicate the needs of local businesses and help direct action that reduces the barriers to prosperity.
Our members come first, which means that of the many referrals we provide every day, nearly all of them go to businesses that have chosen to invest in the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce. As the representative voice of the Atmore business community, people trust that what we suggest will be the very best of what our community has to offer. Businesses looking to raise their profile and enhance their credibility know that the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce is the most cost-efficient and effective way to reach their audience.
We understand that a successful business is an informed one. That’s why we go to great lengths to ensure our members have access to the resources they need to make smart decisions. Whether it’s receiving a timely email update from us, attending one of our events, or simply contacting us to help answer a business question, we’re here to make sure that our members have the tools they need to respond to a variety of circumstances.
