What should I expect at a ribbon cutting?
Each ribbon cutting will vary depending on each business - some businesses provide tours of their location, some businesses provide samplings of their food and beverages. There will be speeches from the business representatives, Chamber of Commerce staff, as well as representatives from the Concord City Council and local elected official representatives.
You will also get to see our large scissors!
Who attends ribbon cuttings?
Again, it depends on each business. At most ribbon cuttings, you can expect the Chamber staff, Ambassadors, and Board members, representatives from the business/organization hosting the ribbon cutting, along with City of Concord Councilmembers, and representatives from various local elected official offices.
Do you have to be a Chamber member for the Chamber to host a ribbon cutting?
