How to Plan A Grand Opening/Ribbon Cutting:

The Chamber would be delighted to help your business celebrate with a ribbon cutting if the company:

  • Opened its doors in the last 12 months or
  • Changed ownership or is under new management or
  • Moved to a new location or
  • Remodeled or expanded at its present location

To schedule a ribbon cutting with the Carroll County Chamber of Commerce, we ask for a minimum of two weeks prior to the event to ensure no conflict of scheduling and to give the Chamber time to prepare address labels for you.

Chamber staff will help to make things go as smoothly as possible by:

  • Notify the Chamber’s Board of Directors and Ambassadors, city dignitaries and local media via e-mail.  We will encourage them to attend your event, but cannot guarantee their attendance.
  • Provide mailing labels for the city officials of your choice.
  • Bring the giant scissors and take pictures at the appointed time. We do have wooded scissors available for after hour ribbon cuttings—they must be returned the following day.

Notes:  Pictures will be emailed to you upon request.  In addition, we will contact the media, but cannot guarantee their attendance.  Chamber members will also have their event picture included in the Chamber News for the following month.  As an added benefit for members, you can promote your event via our Friday eblast.
