Chamber/member events and announcements are emailed to our extensive list of contacts as well as being provided to the local news media for print and radio.
The Chamber Administrative Assistant, Melinda Reynolds, is located at our office at 418 Mammoth Cave Street, Cave City, KY. A wealth of information about the Cave City area and local businesses can be found at our office and all Chamber business is conducted from this location.
The Cave City Welcome Center is also located at the same address.
The Chamber will host a ribbon cutting for a new business or an existing business with a new or remodeled feature to announce. Invitations to attend receive a full media “blast” on Facebook, email, newspaper and radio. Following the event, another “blast” showcases the business with a write up and pictures.
Brochure Rack Card System
Chamber brochure racks are at high traffic locations in Cave City, Horse Cave, Park City and Glasgow. Over a 1/4 million subscriber brochures are distributed annually through the system which also includes various Bowling Green locations. (See the link for rack locations/subscribers)
In 2018, the Chamber continued hosting quarterly breakfast meetings and attendance numbers remain strong. This forum offers excellent networking opportunities.
Speakers provide pertinent information to local businesses. In 2019, speakers were Chad Wilson, Modern Farm Concepts and Sacred Seed Farm, speaking on the hemp industry in Kentucky, Katie Shepard, Allies for Substance Abuse Prevention, speaking on the issues surrounding vaping and Leslie Witty, South Central Workforce Development Board, speaking on identifying and addressing workforce needs in Barren and the surrounding 9 counties.
The Chamber works closely with the City of Cave City and investors with an interest in Cave City as a location for new businesses.
Kentucky State Fair Participation
The Chamber partners with the Cave City Tourism Commission to represent Cave City in the “Pride of the Counties” section of the Kentucky State Fair. This booth has proven very popular with the estimated 225,000 visitors attending annually.
As opportunities arise, the Chamber also partners with the Cave City Tourism Commission in other trade shows to promote Cave City.
Annual Radio Auction
The annual radio/TV auction is an important fund raising tool for the Chamber and provides a tremendous amount of exposure for the donors. Over 3 consecutive evenings, items for auction are presented both on TV and radio. Thousands of folks participate each year eager to support the Chamber and, of course, to try and get a great deal.
