Networking means meeting new people and “talking up” your services and/or products. It is key to growing a business. The Chamber is your source for effective and beneficial networking opportunities.
The Chamber has targeted marketing opportunities for its members:
- Listing on the Chamber’s online Business Directory
- Listing on the Chamber’s hard copy community brochures
- Advertising opportunities in the monthly Chamber newsletter and website
- Chamber ribbon cuttings
- Label printing available by request
The Chamber helps new members and/or members with new locations or who expand their business with a ceremonial Ribbon Cutting. Ribbon cuttings are a good way for Members to “show off” their business and a good opportunity for members to talk about their products or services to new members.
The Chamber’s Annual Dinner is held at the end of the year to talk about the past year’s accomplishments and outline the new Plan of Work. It is also a time that the Chamber presents distinguished community awards. The annual dinner is the Chamber’s most prestigious event.
Monthly membership meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at a local restaurant or at a member’s place of business. The meetings are at noon and in addition to some great networking time, the host of the meeting will present a program about their services or products.
The Cadiz Christmas parade is held in early December each year and the Chamber of Commerce is in charge of the event. It is held at night and is a wonderful kickoff to the Christmas Season.
Ham Festival Breakfast
The annual Trigg County Country Ham Festival provides an opportunity for city and county residents to come together to celebrate the kick off of one of our most anticipated events of the year. The breakfast is attended by 150 + people each year.
Halloween Safe Night
Trick or Treating is a special event for kids of all ages in Cadiz. The safety of our children is paramount and the local merchants are encouraged to provide treats for our little spooks and goblins that night. Costume contests are held downtown and it is a great way to safely enjoy the holiday.

Gift Certificate Program
As a member of the Chamber of Commerce, your participation in the gift certificate program is FREE!
It is so easy to participate. Just let us know that you would like to join the program and we will add you to our list of accepting merchants. Then, just place the “We Accept Chamber Gift Certificates” decal on your storefront so that your customers know you are a participating member. It’s that simple!
Chamber Gift Certificates are to be treated just like a traveler’s check. When you receive a Chamber Gift Certificate from a paying customer, you will simply place it with your nightly deposits. Since it deposits like a check, you can give change back to the customer. Simply accept, endorse and deposit!
As a Chamber member you receive 100% of the redeemed Chamber Gift Certificate. The process is simple and easy. It is our intention to provide this as a service for valued members and hopefully attract customers throughout the area. To begin, and to have a positive experience, your staff’s awareness of the program is of the utmost importance!
- Each person on your staff who is responsible for cash handling must be informed that these Chamber Gift Certificates can be redeemed.
- To verify authenticity of each Chamber Gift Certificate, be sure to check the security features on your “Sample” Chamber gift certificate.
- Simply deposit into your business bank account!
- Chamber Gift Certificates do not interfere with your store gift certificate program.
As a member of the Chamber of Commerce Gift Certificate Program, you’re helping drive dollars back into the community. So…When customers come to your door with a Chamber gift certificate, accept it—they will likely spend beyond the face value!
