Kim Schmidt - Wausau Homes BUSINESS AFTER HOURS ...there’s great energy at the CCC!!! AND it produced outcomes - two potential presenters; I met a stylist which I needed because my normal girl is moving; I got a nugget of great real estate advice and I got to laugh and catch up with a good friend.

A Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony is an important part of your overall marketing and advertising plan and is a great way to kick off the grand opening of a business. It offers an opportunity to meet key leaders in the community and get acquainted with your neighbors, Chamber members and potential customers. The Cornerstone Chamber of Commerce would assist you in planning a successful event for your company. Having participated in hundreds of ribbon-cutting ceremonies, we know how to get optimum exposure for your company. The Chamber would be delighted to help your business celebrate with a Ribbon- Cutting Ceremony if the company has: • Opened its doors in the last 12 months • Changed ownership or is under new management • Moved to a new location • Been remodeled or expanded at its present location ...We were blown away by the support.

Each year we have hundreds in attendance, resulting in excellent promotional opportunities, increased marketing exposure, and tons of networking connections. This annual event gives our members the opportunity to show off their products and services to other Chamber members, as well as the public at-large in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. The Fall Trade Fair offered great visibility and networking. We had the opportunity to present something educational, and it was fun! Lawrence A. Olson - CFP™ Great Lakes Wealth Management, Ltd FALL TRADE FAIR ...Having these relationships has allowed us to serve other members of the Chamber, and has helped us find local solutions for our business needs! Finding local solutions often saves us on shipping costs and travel expenses, and keeps our money circulating in our area!
