We know that many of our Fort Smith Chamber members are having to change the way they operate and we want to help them stay strong throughout this COVID-19 situation.  SHOP LOCAL   has became even more important as we fight to help each stay healthy and keep our economy going regionally.

We will also share these offers out on our Facebook page individually from the businesses as they inform us of their options and offers. If you are a member of the Fort Smith Chamber and would like to inform us of an offer to share, please fill out this survey:
Due to venue availability, federal guidance, and out of an abundance of caution, the Fort Smith Regional Chamber of Commerce is rescheduling our 2020 Signing Day Breakfast and Business Expo & Career Fair.

Originally scheduled for May 1st  , the event is now scheduled for  June 12th at the Fort Smith Convention Center. While this postponement is unfortunate, we take this step in order to best ensure we protect our community members, as well as industries in this region.

As we near  June 12th , we will send out updated information on the event and how to participate. The registration link is still open if you wish to sign up now and stay connected when we send out further communications.

We hope you will join us in looking forward to the opportunity to highlight the many business services and career opportunities our region can offer.

Friday, June 12th
Breakfast Event 7:30am-9:00am

Education News & Events!
Don't Miss This Opportunity! Leadership Fort Smith Applications for the Class of 2021 are Open!

Our motto "Learn. Connect. Lead." states our goal very simply -- to give participants learning opportunities, connect them to the community, and give them the tools to lead. We also use the phrase "back-stage pass" because our sessions give the class an amazing behind the scenes experience. It is both a professional development and community leadership program like no other!
