Put your business front and center by sponsoring a Chamber event, annual program, or digital media.
New network building events in 2022 include the Battle of the Business Bowling Tournament and the Local Lunch for restaurants. BE PRO BE PROUD and Connecting Educators in Industry are focused on building the workforce pipeline for our community. Also new this year are two annual program sponsorships, the Governmental Affairs Committee, and the Chamber Ambassadors, both focused on advocacy for a strong, business friendly climate in our community, county, and state.
Or promote your business utilizing the Chamber website, which received more than 145,000 visits in 2021. And don't forget the long running favorites; the Annual Meeting & Business Expo, the Golf Classic, Business After Hours, and the Arkansas Scholars Award Ceremony.
Learn about the Opportunity Zone Regulations and New Developments presented by Leslie Lane, President at Arkansas Capital.
The Opportunity Zone Tax Benefit was signed into federal law as part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. It encourages long-term equity investments into targeted communities through Opportunity Funds and the incentives are tied to the longevity of the investment.
The Opportunity Zone in Van Buren consists of 7200 acres that include the Industrial Park bordered by Interstate 540, the Arkansas River, the future Interstate 49, with easy access to Interstate 40. The Opportunity Zone also includes undeveloped land with both commercial and residential zones.
