Ways To Be More Involved In YOUR Chamber: Blog 1

Read the Weekly Newsletter

The Chamber E-News goes out every Tuesday afternoon. This newsletter has all the information regarding upcoming events both chamber and community related. We have even recently updated the look so that it only takes a quick glance to see what is coming up. If something catches your eye, there is generally a link attached to give you more information. The E-News also gives members the opportunity to share what they have coming up!

Any member that wishes to advertise in the newsletter can send a graphic/flyer and website link (if needed) to marketing@lebanonwilsonchamber.com. Ads can be showcased for up to 2 weeks and need to be submitted by 4:00 pm the Monday prior.

Attend Networking Events

The Chamber has many opportunities to get involved in your community and meet with other local businesses including, Business After Hours, Business Card Exchanges, and Ribbon Cuttings.

Business After Hours are held monthly on alternating Tuesdays and Thursdays, these networking events provide a relaxed way for members of the Chamber to connect with one another. Member organizations may host these events, which bring together an average of 50-100 people, to showcase their facilities. Here, new members are introduced and may give a brief commercial about their business.

Business Card Exchanges are held once a month at a local organization that is a member of the Chamber. It is a lunch-time networking event during which other members can meet and exchange information with one another, and introduce themselves to the group as a whole through a brief talk about their organization. 

Ribbon Cuttings are a great opportunity to not only network but also showcase your business. Whether it is a new location, expansion, or you are a new member that wants to celebrate your membership. Ribbon Cuttings are a great way to invite people into your workplace and get to know them. To get in on the fun of Ribbon Cuttings, you do not have to personally host one. All Ribbon Cuttings are open for members to attend.

For more information on hosting or attending any of these events, contact Tonya 615-444-5503 or tonya@lebanonwilsonchamber.com.

Digital Communication

    Here at the Chamber, one of our main goals is to increase communication amongst the Chamber, our members, and Wilson County. As most of you know, we are in the midst of the digital age, where everything you need is just a click away. This is why we have recently taken steps to improve our digital communication through our weekly newsletter, website, and social media accounts.

    We have developed a new and improved weekly newsletter that was sent out on March 5, 2019. The newest edition now includes a new, “on the go” style, this style was achieved by simplifying our previous content to links that will take you directly to where you need to go on our website or event pages.

    In the upcoming months, we will be adjusting our website to be more user-friendly with a clean, modern style.

    Previously, we were a little behind on the social media trend, but we now offer a consistent social media coverage over the upcoming events in Wilson County. This has not only improved our followers and interactions but has improved our event attendance as well. But we’re not going to stop there! We are also developing some new marketing techniques that will show off our events in a way that the Chamber has never done before, so stay tuned.

Makes sure you stay in the know by following us on social media. Facebook: Lebanon/Wilson Chamber of Commerce, Twitter: @LebChamber, and Instagram: @LebChamber.

Wilson Books from Birth Imagination Dinner

                The Wilson Books from Birth Program is a part of the statewide Imagination Library, the literacy service that provides books to children at no cost to the family. The Wilson County Chapter has only one fundraiser each year, making the Imagination Dinner a very important and exciting event! This year’s Imagination Dinner will be held at the Wilson County Exposition Center on April 11 at 6:30 pm. The event is catered by Sammy B's.

                Groups or business can purchase tables of 8 for $250, and each group will also select a “wacky waiter” for the evening. Each group will decorate their table and attendees according to the theme that they have selected. The waiter will collect “tips” for anything requested by the group and the tips will be added to the fundraising total for the evening. Live and silent auctions will be available throughout the evening, and door prizes will be given out as well.

                The cost to supply books to each child per year is $30, 50% is paid for by the Governor’s Foundation and the remaining 50% is raised by the individual organizations. There are currently about 6,000 children in the program, and close to 13,000 have graduated out of the program. With your help, the Wilson Books from Birth program will continue to grow and have the ability to supply proper reading material to children all over Wilson County.

To register for this event email dptsimpson@msn.com or call 615-444-5586
