As a new member, you will be listed in the Alliance newsletter, weekly email, website, social media and opportunities to be highlighted in other publications. You also can grow your business by advertising and sponsoring events. The Alliance may also promote your grand opening/ribbon-cutting ceremony and assist with any public relations efforts.
The most fundamental mission is to generate more business activity for the community. The Alliance is a member-driven organization that initiates more business-to-business commerce and networking opportunities than most other local organizations.
Alliance events and programs provide members with great opportunities to get to know new people and expand their prospect base. Alliance events are innovative and fun ways to help members meet potential customers, clients and generate new business leads.
The Alliance serves as the county’s marketing and promotions team to generate new growth, jobs and investment opportunities to advance Hardin County’s economy, as well as expanding the county’s market awareness on a regional, national and global scale.
The Alliance builds relationships with our local, state and federal elected officials and political leaders to support efforts to encourage a pro-business atmosphere. We advocate principles of a free enterprise system that allows our local industrial, commercial and retail businesses to grow and prosper.
Newsletters and informational notices provide new member information, current business and community updates, articles about timely issues, a community calendar and details about upcoming Alliance events, among other things.
Every day, the Alliance receives calls from individuals and businesses looking for specific business needs and Alliance Members typically recommend fellow members.
Membership allows you to reach potential clients through member exclusive advertising and opportunities for business-to-business publicity.
From time-to-time, Alliance members will offer discounts and promotions only good to those current and existing members of the Hardin County Chamber & Business Alliance. A great way to promote Buy Local and seek supporters from our membership.
