Meeting To Set Chamber's Direction
For The Year
VP: Don Hutchison
Members & Non-Members In Attendance Had A Chance To Answer "What
Can the Chamber Do For Me?"
Roten of RCB Bank gave a brief history of the bank which began in 1935. RCB
Bank was the luncheon sponsor for this Chamber meeting. RCB Bank (which is now
in many communities including Collinsville) has assets of more than a billion
provide a list of services and items for sale at your Collinsville
business for a database being generated by the Chamber of Commerce. Give
your list to Wanda at the Chamber Office (11th & Main) or email to
This is for all Collinsville businesses, not just Chamber members.
A variety of topics were
shared Thursday at a meeting dedicated to Chamber self-evaluation. The comments
and suggestions came from local business owners (some thriving and others
struggling just to pay the rent/payroll each month). Most praised the existing
postive aspects of the Collinsville business environment while challenging
the Chamber/community to make improvements. Promotion of Collinsville and
it's many businesses was a common theme but exactly how to best accomplish
that is still in the works. Creating a complete list of services and items
available for sale in Collinsville is one of the first set objectives. How
that list is most effectively made available is not yet set (some combination
of printed and online media).
Suggestions were made
for improved newcomer interfacing (welcome wagon, information sheets, etc.
for new residents and ribbon cutting, advertising / promotions, evening meetings,
etc. for businesses). The discussion and suggestions will continue at the
April 3rd noon luncheon meeting which will be held at American Bank of Oklahoma.
The purpose of the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce is to help foster
alliances within the business community, to enhance and support economic
development, and to provide leadership for the continued growth of Collinsville.
The Chamber strives to be very involved with community affairs to create
a bond between its citizens that will empower the entire Collinsville
community to prosper and grow together.
