AMERICUS — The Sumter County Chamber of Commerce announces the launch of a new program, The Small Business of the Month, through its Business Development Division. The Small Business of the Month program is designed to spotlight a member business each month that does an exceptional job of serving its customers and the community.
Jay Roberts, chairman of the Sumter County Chamber, said, “Small businesses are a vital part of our community and we want to be able to recognize them for their contributions. We feel a program such as the Small Business of the Month can help shine a light on a successful business as well as commend them for their commitment to the Chamber and the community.”
Companies will be selected based on the following qualities: customer service, reputation for integrity and honesty, supporting economic growth by bringing new business into the community, supporting the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce by serving on divisions and/or sponsoring events, and showing support through giving of time and/or donations to local charities, groups, and events.
If you or a business you know makes a sustainable effort to strengthen our community through exceptional business practices and outreach efforts, nominate them at or call Carolyn at the Chamber 229-924-2646 for more information.
The purpose of the Business Development Division is to establish a platform for innovative thinking and policy education to support entrepreneurial and business growth; and to provide increased exposure and opportunity through training, mentoring and networking.
