A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. As the voice of the business community, the Chamber supports organizations of all sizes and we encourage you to "shop small" this month to help grow Macon's local economy. Please save the date for Small Business Saturday on November 24.  Join me as your Chamber President and support local businesses for all your holiday shopping. Dollars spent at home are dollars which stay local for community building. We have excellent shopping venues to fit every taste in Macon-Bibb County.

I invite you to attend the upcoming annual Business and Industry Awards Luncheon, “A Salute to Business,” hosted by the Macon Economic Development Commission and the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce. This event will recognize local businesses for their contributions to our community. Please join us on Tuesday, November 13 at the Armory Ballroom to see who will be this year’s winners.

Also, I would like for you to join the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce and show your support to protect the Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon. This is an initiative that is one of the Chamber’s top legislative priorities and I encourage you to sign the petition today. The online petition can be found here.

Members, as 2018 winds down, please keep in mind the upcoming TRC sponsorship opportunities when looking ahead at your 2019 budgets. Thank you chamber members for your continuous support that is beneficial to the community and our area!


Sincerely,
Yvonne Williams
Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce President & CEO
