The primary benefit of Clarksdale Chamber of Commerce membership is knowing that through your membership you are supporting programs and events that support our community and promote business activity in our area. Your membership provides the financial support for the annual community Christmas Parade, the Fridays at the Stage concert series supporting local musicians, Youth Leadership Clarksdale, the annual Chamber Banquet, Citizen and Business of the Year recognitions, as well as significant sponsorship in the Juke Joint Festival, the Mississippi Delta Tennessee Williams Festival, and the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival. The Chamber also is a sponsor of Live from Clarksdale, an online concert series featuring live Blues music accessible to fans around the world.
Additional benefits of membership include an exclusive listing on our website, providing both residents, newcomers, and visitors an online reference to goods and services in the Clarksdale and Coahoma County area. Inquiries made to our office result in referrals to Chamber members. Membership also provides you and your business the opportunity to gain high visibility through sponsorships of various chamber events, such as Fridays at the Stage and the annual Chamber Banquet.
We provide space in the Chamber office to display your business cards or promotional brochures.
We provide ribbon cutting and grand opening or reopening ceremonies for new or relocated Chamber businesses. We require a minimum of two weeks’ notice for this service.
Finally, your membership cost of belonging to the Chamber is 100% tax deductible.
