The committee working on “Welcome to the Chamber” packets for new chamber members and “Welcome to McCreary County” packets to welcome new people or businesses to the County needs your help!

We currently have some of our members that offer discounts to members. We would like to be able to add some other discounts or benefits to the mix. Any member that can offer something to our membership, please e-mail Suzie Thompson at or

In addition, when we have completed the Member Packets we will be working on Welcome Packets and could really use some one time gift certificates or coupons. This is just another great way to advertise and promote your business.
