Calling All Businesses—It’s Up to You!

This is my CALL TO ACTION! If you own a business or work in Fort Payne, we encourage you to get involved! Listen, you either work for yourself or someone (hopefully, if not, First Choice Personnel can help you), and there are opportunities for you to make a difference in your business and the Fort Payne business community.

Everyone can do better—we all can, and when opportunities are there for you, by all means take them. The Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce offers resources, networking events, and opportunities to help you grow. As a matter of fact we are starting new programs for all ages, and we’re hosting events monthly to help you grow and network with other businesses. If you aren’t in the know, it’s time you make the commitment to join the Chamber in our efforts to propel Fort Payne forward!

The Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce has a new program called Rising Leaders of DeKalb. This will be a group of younger (ages 16-35) individuals with a passion for moving Fort Payne forward. We need input and participation from those who will be in leadership positions in the near future. We need creative thinkers and doers to join this group. Randy Posey with Allstate and Cole Justice with First Southern State Bank are spearheading this initiative. If you are interested in learning more please email us at

There is also an opportunity to be a Chamber Ambassador. If you are interested in helping with ribbon cuttings, after hours, business and breakfast and membership growth, we need you.  Don’t panic, we don’t expect you to attend everything, but I bet you have some time to spare and can help with some Chamber functions. Email us and let us know if you would like more information,

This one is easy: What services would you like the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce to provide? Who wants to host an event nobody attends? Not me. So, what will get you out and engaged?
