    RED CROSS SAYS RESOLVE TO PREPARE FOR DISASTERS IN 2017

    The New Year is here and many have made resolutions about things they want to do in 2017. The American Red Cross asks everyone to add getting prepared for emergencies to their list of resolutions.

    “Households need to plan what they would do if an emergency situation occurred,” said Colin Downey, Regional Communications Director. “All it takes is three easy steps; get a disaster kit ready, develop an emergency plan and be informed about what possible risks you may face where you live.”

    Families need to plan what they should do if a disaster occurs. Individuals can make a difference in their community by knowing what to do when disaster strikes. It’s just a few short steps away:

    1. Get a kit. If you’ve ever fumbled to find a flashlight during a blackout, you know what it feels like to be unprepared. Use a downloadable checklist available on redcross.org to make it easy to get your emergency preparedness kit ready. You should include:
    • Three-day supply of non-perishable food and water—one gallon per person, per day for drinking and hygiene purposes
    • Battery-powered or hand crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible) Flashlight and extra batteries First aid kit, medications and medical items
    • Copies of all important documents (proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies) Extra cash Click here to continue

  • The Many Benefits of Joining The Magnolia Chamber! The Many Benefits of Joining The Magnolia Chamber!

    Membership Benefits

     

    Magnolia Chamber is a group that's dedicated to protecting and promoting the local business community. The primary goal? To help business owners network and grow.

     

    The top 10 list of reasons why you should join your local chamber of commerce supplied by 10 local chambers across the United States.

     

    1. Membership brings credibility to your business. You can increase positive perception among consumers and business owners when you’re identified as a member of a chamber of commerce.
      – Dearborn Chamber of Commerce in Michigan
    2. Increase your visibility in the community. As a new member of the chamber of commerce, you will be listed in the chamber newsletter, e-newsletter, on Facebook and have the opportunity to be highlighted in other chamber publications. You also can grow your business by advertising with the chamber and sponsoring events. The chamber may also promote your grand opening/ ribbon-cutting ceremony and assist with any public relations efforts.
      – Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce in Texas
    3. Create networking opportunities. Chambers have numerous committees and serving on one of them provides numerous networking opportunities as well as professional leadership development. You can build your business while promoting developments of keen interest to local businesses and the community at large.
      – Columbia County Chamber of Commerce in Georgia
    4. Gain a voice in government. The local chamber takes on the tough issues and opposes new regulations, taxes, fees, assessments and costs directed at small businesses. It also helps protect the principles of free enterprise and aids businesses in being treated fairly.
      – Yuma Chamber of Commerce in California
    5. Make business contacts. The chamber’s most fundamental mission is to generate more business activity for the community. The chamber initiates more business-to-business commerce and more opportunities for networking and connecting local professionals than is available through most other local organizations.
      – Spartanburg Area Chamber of Commerce in South Carolina
    6. Receive chamber newsletters. Newsletters provide new member information, interesting information about operating a local business, articles about the local community, a community calendar and details about up-and-coming chamber events, among other things.
      – Teton Valley Chamber Of Commerce in Idaho
    7. Acquire customer referrals. Every day, your local chamber receives calls from individuals and businesses looking for potential vendors, and chamber members typically recommend chamber members.
      – Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce in Tennessee
    8. Chamber events and programs. Chamber events and programs provide members with great opportunities to get to know new people and expand their prospect base. Chamber events are innovative and fun ways to help members meet potential customers, clients and vendors— and generate new business leads.
      – Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce in California
    9. Promotion and publicity. With a chamber membership, you can reach potential clients through member exclusive advertising and opportunities for business-to-business advertising and publicity.
      – Pike County Chamber of Commerce in Illinois
    10. Access to members-only discounts and services. These differ from chamber to chamber. For example, the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce in Oregon has a member-to-member discount program where a chamber member will receive $10 off any phone or accessory purchased from the local Verizon Wireless retailer in Sandy, which is a member of the chamber.

    Ready to join Magnolia Chamber, if you aren’t already? Keep in mind, however, that you can’t just be a member of the chamber to reap the benefits of chamber membership. Paying your annual dues just isn’t enough. You must also make an investment of time and effort in chamber activities and become involved. Simply put, what you get out of chamber membership is directly relative to what you put in.

  • A Word From Our Chamber President! A Word From Our Chamber President!

     
    Many years ago I found the greatest possible feeling of true happiness comes from helping someone in need. Buying something may create momentary happiness or acheiving something gives pride, but helping someone gives you longlasting happiness. People ask me, " why are you a member of the Chamber?" I became a member to give back.
     
    Magnolia has been very generous to me and my employees over the years whether providing a living or enriching us with the lives and stories of our many clients.
     
    I joined the Magnolia Chamber of Commerce to give back to the communty. Aside from the many benefits to the Chamber such as access to more affordable health insurance, networking with neighbors, businesses, and political leaders, becoming  a member of the Chamber is an excellent way to exact real change and add value to our neighborhood.
     
    Contributing through helping hold fun memorable events such as Summerfest, Halloween, or Winterfest or figuring out ways to beautify and secure our neighborhood, or helping neighbors with various causes like putting in a new traffic sign.  Personally I want to continue to burst with Pride to be a Magnolian
     
    I'm proud to be the President of the Magnolia Chamber of Commerce. We have many exciting new developments coming for 2017. Come find us and become a member of our family and join us in creating real change. 
     
    Thank you,

    President
