The Glenwood Chamber is currently working on a printed membership directory. It is a spiral bound, hard front and back, color directory. This is something we’ve been asked about a lot from our members, and is something most surrounding Chambers have available.

It’s basically a phone book type directory that lists only Chamber Members. It lists them alphabetically by name, and then again by category. It also includes some information on the Pope County and Glenwood area.  These will be free to all Chamber Members, and we will also have some available for the general public. We are hoping to deliver them starting in April!

Within the directory are tabs that separate each section. We have advertisement opportunities available for our Chamber Members to fill these spaces!

Costs are as follows: $100 for a full page, $50 for half. There is also the option for $25 quarter page ads to be printed within the directory.

The council provides community members with information and education regarding violence and violence prevention issues in hopes of raising public awareness and making our neighborhoods and communities caring, supportive and safe.
