Serving Progress in Business, Industry & Community ... We Work for You!
How We Serve Member Businesses
People like doing business with people they know, and members are encouraged to network with other business people through Chamber events.
Business After Hours
These events are sponsored by member businesses to showcase their company and are held throughout the year when requested by hosts. Attendance ranges from 40 to 100, with an average of around 50.
Monthly Membership Luncheons
These are the regular membership meetings, held each month except November. Speakers present business-related topics and programs and when time permits, members are able to 'Speak Out' about their businesses.
These are networking opportunities focused on introducing our newest members to Chamber life and other members.
Dignitaries, Chamber Board of Directors, and the media are invited to these events which are published in the local papers and Chamber News.
Member businesses may take advantage of a number of advertising opportunities.
Chamber Newsletter Advertising Opportunities
The monthly Chamber newsletter includes articles about member businesses. Member businesses are encouraged to use this opportunity to publish information about their business, their staff, and their events free of charge.
Chamber Newsletter Inserts
Members may place inserts in the monthly newsletter which is distributed to over 480 individuals in over 340 area businesses.
Members may place a business-card-size ad inside or on the back cover of the newsletter.
Members may sponsor events and have their business included in the event coverage, including the local media, Chamber News, event-related mailings, and at the event.
Members may donate door prizes at Chamber events. Door prize donors are recognized and thanked at events and in the newsletter.
Meet the Ohio Valley
Members are given the opportunity to advertise in the Meet the Ohio Valley magazine, which is produced and distributed by The Times Leader and given to visitors and new residents. Additionally, the Chamber membership list and contact information is included in the Meet the Ohio Valley publication.
Several member discount opportunities are available to Chamber members.

How We Promote Area Business Success
Meet the Ohio Valley
The Chamber works with The Times Leader to produce Meet the Ohio Valley each summer with information about St. Clairsville, along with other Ohio Valley communities. Chamber members are listed and members have the opportunity to advertise in the publication. Meet the Ohio Valley is distributed as a supplement to the paper and the Chamber office gives copies to new residents and tourists.
The Chamber office promotes member businesses to callers and visitors.
How We Serve the Community
Academic Achievement Awards Dinner
This annual event recognizes outstanding students from the St. Clairsville Area.
Meet the Candidate
These political events are held, when appropriate, as a forum in which voters have the opportunity for a face-to-face meeting with prospective office holders.
Christmas Tree Lighting and Parade
These events kick off the holiday season in the center of town and attract residents and visitors to the downtown area. Local musical groups are invited to sing and Santa stops by for a visit. Our parade is one of the largest in the Ohio Valley, with nearly 70 participants annually.
