Why Join the Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce?

When you join the Banner Elk Chamber of Commerce, you are joining an amazing group of local business owners and individuals who work together to make Banner Elk a great place to live, play, and do business.

The benefits include:

Directory Listings -  Listings in our Website Member Directory and in the Avery Journal-Times annual MyHometown publication

Announcements in our Weekly Newsletter - Send info whenever you want to be included. Of course, your first week as a Member, we will announce you as a new member in the newsletter and on Facebook.

Events Posted on the Website Calendar - We post your events, sales, specials, etc., just send them to the Chamber.

Member Referrals - The Chamber Office, located at the center of Banner Elk, is a hotspot for area visitors. Everyone entering the Chamber is looking for something. The volunteers help visitors and callers find whatever they’re looking for: hotels, food, activities, shopping and much more. Businesses are also encouraged to bring printed materials to the Chamber office for display to visitors and guests.

Networking - On the second Wednesday of each month between February and November, the Chamber has an After Hours networking event. This is your regular opportunity to meet us with professional colleagues and chat about business. The locations of the events change each month and are hosted by Chamber members. Members interested in hosting an After Hour event can contact the Chamber.

Community Events - Each year, the Chamber puts on great community events, including Easter Kids Celebration, Summer Concerts in the Park, 4th of July Parade, and The Small Town Christmas with the Parade of Lights. We encourage our members to become involved in these events!

How much does it cost to be a member of the Banner Elk Chamber? Our business membership dues are only $150 per year (which breaks down to $12.50 per month!); even less for individuals and non-profit organizations. New members may be pro-rated. See the pro-rated dues chart at the link below.
