Membership Benefits

  • Advertising Exposure:

    • All members are included online on this web-site, including a link to their web-site and a description of their business, location, hours of operation, etc.

    • Member promotional rack cards and business cards are on display at the Tourism Information' Center/Rest Area at the corner of Cover and Route 74/129, Andrews NC. The rack cards are shared with the Tourism Visitors' Center in Murphy.

    • In April of each year all active members are listed in the area papers on the "Welcome to Andrews" page in Accent Andrews Magazine. This magazine is distributed with the Andrews Journal and Cherokee Scout and distributed all year to visitors and potential visitors on request.

  • Special Events Advertising: Chamber members have first priority for advertising their special events on the Chamber of Commerce and Town of Andrews Events Web Pages and Facebook. The event pages are used by locals and visitors to know what is happening in Andrews.

  • Networking Opportunities: Existing and potential Chamber members get to know one another, other businesses, and can make new contacts through quarterly Business after Hours get-togethers that are hosted by Chamber Members. An annual dinner is held each year that includes presentation of the business person of the year award voted on by each of the active members.

  • Chamber Updates:

    • Periodic Buzz about the Chamber email is sent regularly with notifications about new members, special news, or promotions offered by present members or news you can use to help your business to grow or operate more efficiently.

    • Chamber Members are the first to know about events that are being sponsored by the Chamber and the Town of Andrews to bring locals and tourists into town and expose them to what businesses are here that they can patronize during those events or afterwards. Events have included 4th of July fair and fireworks, Labor Day weekend, Christmas on Main, etc.

  • Referral Services: Chamber of Commerce is one of the first places newcomers and potential visitors contact via email and telephone with questions about the Andrews area. Routinely, visitors ask for maps, a list of chamber members and "things to do". For walk-in visitors at the Tourism Visitors' Center, the staff or a trained volunteer greets them and answers inquiries. Members receive preferential mention on all inquiries and information sent out. Displays at the Tourism Visitors' Center have members' promotional material presented in category groupings to make specific information easier to find.

  • Ribbon Cuttings: Chamber board members and general members are available for ribbon cuttings for new or newly re-vamped members in the area. The Depot is available for these events when an "on-site" event would not be appropriate. Photos published in the Andrews Journal and Cherokee Scout.

  • Discounts: Some Chamber of Commerce members offer discounts to other Chamber Members. See one of the Chamber board members for additional information.

  • Credibility: Displaying the Chamber window/door decal lets your current and future customers, as well as other business owners, know of your commitment to the Andrews community.
