HOW TO JOIN

The Big Bend Minority Chamber of Commerce serves its members as an advocate on issues directly and indirectly impacting small and minority businesses within Franklin, Gadsden, Jefferson, Leon and Wakulla counties. Each month the BBMC hosts several events that provide its members the opportunity to connect with newer members, business professionals and government officials.

In addition, we provide our members with a transparent referral service for products and services requested by other chamber members and individuals looking to join. Our referral service provides each member, and member companies, the opportunity to increase exposure, gain information, and successfully develop within and outside the regional network.

Members may also promote their businesses with the BBMC in a cost effective way to attract new customers. Each of our programs and activities offer exceptional networking and marketing opportunities.

Whether you are a small business owner, employee, or looking to exercise your entrepreneurial ideas, your membership in the Big Bend Minority Chamber of Commerce will provide greater access for your future endeavors.

The BBMC and its staff work tirelessly for all of its members.
