Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce Benefits
New Business Contacts
A primary benefit of business membership, we provide programs and opportunities, such as Business After Hours/Business Showcase, to meet those business representatives who need your products/services – FUTURE CUSTOMERS!
We keep you informed on key issues affecting your business through the Governmental Affairs Committee, Washington Trip and Legislative Wrap-up sessions.
The Chamber receives daily inquiries on where to find products and services in our area. Our policy is to refer CHAMBER MEMBERS ONLY! We also encourage Chamber members to use other Chamber members for products/services.

Through newsletter promotions, advertising opportunities, preferred business directory listings, business showcases, and program sponsorships, you gain direct exposure to 600 Chamber member firms! When you join the chamber as a business, you receive a certificate for an ad (3 column by 10 in) in The Tifton Gazette valued at $505.50.
