Can I sponsor a Chamber event?

Yes, Currituck Chamber of Commerce events are the perfect outlet for your company to gain publicity and brand recognition. Your business logo will appear on all promotional materials for the event you choose. You are welcome to sponsor the Business Expo & Job Fair, Spring Social Dinner Dance, Golf Tournament, Annual Meeting & Awards Dinner or Breakfast Roundtable Discussion.  Contact us to learn more about sponsoring a Chamber event.

How do I volunteer?

Get involved in your Chamber!  Volunteering is a great way to develop beneficial relationships with member businesses and become an even more visible and respected member of the Currituck community.

The Currituck Chamber of Commerce has created our Ambassador Program to help accomplish its business plan.  Ambassadors are dedicated members who act as the goodwill arm of the Chamber. Each ambassador is assigned a group of new Chamber members (“buddies”) to educate and assist throughout the year.  Ambassadors also volunteer at Chamber events, attend ribbon cutting ceremonies, and seek feedback regarding ways to improve Chamber services and benefits. In return, ambassadors benefit from networking and building new relationships with their buddies as well as with fellow ambassadors and Chamber members. Ambassadors often go on to become leaders in the Chamber, as well as business and civic leaders. If you would like to become a Chamber ambassador, contact Juanita Krause at (252) 453-9497.

How do I schedule a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony?

The Chamber would be delighted to help your business celebrate with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony if your company has:

  • opened its doors in the last 12 months
  • changed ownership or is under new management
  • moved to a new location
  • been remodeled or expanded at its present location
  • is new to the Chamber

A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is an important part of your overall marketing and advertising plan and is a great way to kick-off a grand opening of a business. It offers an opportunity to meet key leaders in the community and get acquainted with your neighbors, Chamber members, and potential customers.

Scheduling a Ribbon Cutting with the Chamber should take place a minimum of three weeks prior to the event to allow the Chamber time to plan the appropriate documentation, invite members of the Chamber’s board of directors, our ambassadors, and dignitaries from our county to join your celebration. Food and beverages are often served, but it is your decision. Your plan can be as simple or elaborate as you like; whatever fits your budget. Chamber staff members and ambassadors will help to make things go as smoothly as possible by:

  • Writing a press release — this may also be written by your communications group if you like.
  • Inviting the Chamber’s board of directors, ambassadors, and local elected officials and encourage them to attend your event.
  • Putting you in touch with other Chamber businesses that can provide catering, deli and beverage services, publicity and even invitations.
  • Bringing the over-sized ribbon cutting scissors and taking pictures at the appointed time.
  • Including a photo and acknowledgement of your ribbon cutting in Chamber publications in addition to a press release.

There is no charge for the Chamber’s involvement — it’s a value-added benefit of being a member. Call the Chamber at (252) 453-9497 to schedule your ribbon cutting ceremony.

More information can be found in find our Guide To Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies.
