The Lake Area Chamber is honored to have the opportunity to refer a variety of businesses to visitors and residents of the lake area. This is a benefit to our members, we ONLY refer Chamber Members.

2) HAVE A RIBBON CUTTING

Upon request, our Chamber conducts ground breaking/ribbon cutting ceremonies for a variety of “milestone” events. Whether it’s a new, expanding or moving business or one that has taken over new ownership, a chamber ribbon cutting is available. After each ribbon cutting, you will receive a news release, prepared by our Marketing Coordinator, which is sent to media outlets across the Lake and in the major metro areas surrounding the Lake of the Ozarks. This is a great opportunity for us to help you get the exciting word out to our community and surrounding areas.
