Ribbon Cutting Request Form
Please complete the form to be reviewed by staff. Once your date is confirmed, the Chamber will post your event on the Chamber website calendar and create event pages on Facebook and LinkedIn. The Chamber will provide red ribbon and scissors for your ribbon cutting ceremony, and will take photos to post across the Chamber's various social media platforms.
Ribbon Cutting Guidelines:
Ribbon Cuttings are a free service of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce and are an exclusive benefit of Chamber membership.
Chamber Member must be in good standing.
Please submit ribbon cutting request form at least two weeks before preferred date.
Ribbon Cuttings are scheduled Monday-Friday, between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:30 pm. These times increase likelihood of attendance from the business community.
We will make every effort to get a number of our Concord Chamber Ambassadors, Board Members, Chamber Members & City Officials to your event although we cannot guarantee that a specific number will attend.
If you prefer NOT to have Ambassadors/Board Members there (i.e. you only want employees and/or family in the photo) you must let us know immediately.
Some members like to host light refreshments for the ribbon cutting guests (coffee & doughnuts in the morning, appetizers at lunch). This is NOT required, but it is a nice touch and at your discretion.
You may also want to schedule a brief tour of your facility or orientation about your business.
Some members like to have small gifts or prizes to give out. Again, this is at your discretion and not required.
We will place a photo of your ribbon cutting on our social media platforms.

3. Elected Officials (contingent upon who is in attendance at the time, subject to change: Supervisor, Assembly, Senate, Congress, City Councilmembers, Mayor)
