WHY have other businesses joined the Chamber?
“The Chamber provides opportunities for members of A.T. Still University to participate in the community as service-oriented professionals who volunteer to make a difference perhaps to change the world. For example, the Highway 63 Transportation Corporation came out of a committee of the Chamber and out of this came a plan for 22 miles of four lane highway between Macon and Kirksville.”

“Chamber membership is not only a way to connect with the local community via the newsletter and Business After Hours but with potential new library users moving to Kirksville through relocation information.”

“Joining the Chamber of Commerce in town was one of our top priorities when it came to getting situated starting our bed and breakfast business. Not only did they help in contacting contractors, suppliers, etc., but it was a great way to meet other business owners in town and making many new friends. The great team work by chamber members has given us great opportunities to become involved in the community. The referrals later were greatly appreciated, too. All in all, a great return on our investment.”
Mac’n Jill McCord, Owners/Hosts

“The Chamber of Commerce provides an invaluable conduit to other businesses. Since we specialize in business to business sales, that means every contact with a Chamber member is a contact with a “qualified” prospect. For the small price of our Chamber dues, Lone Pine Embroidery & Design has received many referrals from Chamber staff, the Kirksville Guide, and the Chamber Web site.”

“Joining the Kirksville Chamber of Commerce has been a great way for ETC ComputerLand to network with the community. Being in the technology field, it has given us many opportunities in the Kirksville area with Computers, Computer Service and Repair, Managed Services, Network Support and Programming, Website Development, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and Mobile App Development. Attending the Business After Hours, the Annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet, the Chamber Golf Outing and Helping lead the Chamber Technology Committee along with all of the other Chamber sponsored events gives us the chance to meet and connect with the business people of the community.”
