Whether it is advertising & promotion, cost-savings, networking opportunities, or merely exposure in the community, we have a benefit for you!
We refer members first! We regularly receive requests for information on availability of goods and services from local businesses and we gladly give referrals ONLY for our members. Think of it like this, if we give your name and contact information once or 50 times throughout the year, chances are that the sales you make from that contact is going to pay for your membership with the DACC.
The DACC office acts as a clearing house for a myriad of questions from the business community, visitors and residents. Share things with us such as community events, job openings, sales, business events, relocation information, anything that can help promote your business and our community. Space is available at the office to display you promotional materials, business cards, literature and event flyers. It is unfortunate when we have to tell people we don’t have the information they’re looking for. Remember, we only have the information that is given to us and your participation and involvement is key to maximizing your return. Stop in at the office to drop off materials or contact us for assistance.
Ribbon Cuttings/Special Ceremonies
The Chamber conducts ribbon cutting ceremonies to welcome new investors to Delphos and the Chamber-business community. We also attend ground breakings, grand openings, and dedications to help spotlight your business’ accomplishments.
•Contact the Chamber office to schedule your event. We will extend an invite to our Board of Directors, local media, & other community leaders (member email listing if business owner chooses). It is up to the business owner to put the event together, if you are hosting one, such as a grand opening. You are responsible for any additional marketing and may share promo materials to include in the invite. We simply show up with the scissors, ribbon and take a photo.
•The event must be scheduled through the Chamber in advance. Please provide a small write up about your business for local media to insert with the ribbon cutting ceremony photo. The photo and write up will be shared on our website and included in the monthly newsletter.
The success of the Delphos Area Chamber of Commerce and its work in the community depends on a strong, active volunteer force. As a member of the Chamber, you and others on your staff are welcome to apply to sit on our Board of Directors and/or actively participate at meetings and projects. Volunteering with the Chamber is the best way to become an even more visible and respected member of our community and to develop an ever greater number of relationships with member businesses.
We offer printed address labels with current Chamber member businesses
at your request.
