The Benton Area Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit, pro-business volunteer membership organization that is the voice of our business community as we provide myriad opportunities for further growth of our business community.
The Benton Area Chamber is the front door to the community. We answer phone calls every day and get hundreds of requests each year looking for various companies, services and general information about the area we serve. We constantly strive to promote and refer our business members to these people.
To our business members we offer an opportunity to network within the community through ribbon cuttings, business-after-hours, monthly luncheons, advertising opportunities and economic development. The Chamber strives to keep our business community involved in every phase of life in our area, always keeping an eye toward making Benton and the surrounding area a better place for all its citizens.
The Chamber works closely with the Advertising and Promotion Commission and the city in the operation of the Benton Event Center. The Saline County Economic Development office is also housed in our building.
2015 began in an exciting way as speaker Josh Altman offered business advice to our members at our annual banquet held in February. The year continued as we presented to our members and the community the opportunity to enjoy social gatherings such as Savor the Flavor, Hook, Line and Chicken, Saline County Business Expo, and glitz & garland.
