• Ribbon Cuttings

    The Oak Park-River Forest Chamber of Commerce coordinates ribbon-cutting ceremonies on behalf of its members who are celebrating a grand opening, a major renovation, an expansion, or a significant anniversary.  Ribbon cuttings generally take place on Fridays from 11:30 am - noon, and provide an opportunity to welcome and connect with a new business, network with other attendees, and celebrate our growing business community. 

    Members at the Standard membership level and up are eligible for one ribbon cutting per year, given an appropriate occasion for the ceremony.  The ribbon cutting package included in membership features:

     * Advance Promotion: via newsletter - web site - email invitations - Twitter - Facebook

     * Ribbon Cutting Ceremony: featuring giant scissors - ceremonial sashes - commemorative certificate

     * Post-Ceremony Publicity: photos posted to Facebook - photos posted to web gallery - email thank you to Chamber attendees

    The Premium Ribbon Cutting package ($150) includes all of the above, but adds:

     * Half-page advertisement in Wednesday Journal with business address, web site, phone number, ceremony photos, and identification of businesspeople in photos

     * Businesspeople identified in Facebook photos of event
