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.
Tyson Foods has served Van Buren as a solid corporate citizen and community partner for many years. We are sad to see them leave but we understand they must do what is best for their business. We look forward to visiting with Tyson’s management team to ensure the best outcome of this situation, discuss the future of the closed facility, and how our community can assist in determining its future use.
In the meantime, we will focus on serving the Tyson team members, who are our friends and neighbors. We are pulling together all community partners to identify the considerable resources our area can offer to enable a smooth career transition.
