  • Mary Wallace is chamber president


  • Importance of planning discussed


    On Jan. 18, Talquin Electric Cooperative sponsored a Chamber Continuity of Operations Plan (COOP) Workshop.
    The workshop was held at Posey’s Steam Room and Oyster Bar. Emergency Management Representatives from Tallahassee  Community College provided valuable information needed to take the first steps in developing and implementing a COOP.
    One in four businesses fails to reopen after a significant disaster event, but the development of an effective COOP will allow you to avoid  being one of them.

  • Networking luncheon hosted by Wakulla Environmental, catered by Kast Net

    We kicked off 2017 at Wakulla Environmental Institute with our first networking luncheon, catered by the Kast Net restaurant, and are grateful to Bob Ballard for hosting our crowd of 88.
    KastNet always does such a wonderful job catering, and Ms. Thu’s egg rolls alone are worth attending. Chamber president Mary Wallace introduced newly elected officials Sheriff Miller and Property Appraiser Brad Harvey, along with attending chamber board members, thanking them for their service to the chamber and community.

  • No-cost help for small businesses

    Special to The News

    Whether it’s due to inclement weather or maybe even a power outage, unplanned emergencies can negatively impact your business.
     However, very few businesses, especially small businesses, have a Continuity of Operation Plan (COOP) in place.
    Hence the reason why the Wakulla Chamber of Commerce and Talquin Electric Cooperative have joined forces to offer both Chamber members and non-Chamber members an opportunity to participate in a lunch and learn workshop scheduled for Jan. 18 from noon to 2 p.m.

    Of the Chamber

    On Thursday, Nov. 18, the Lodge at Wakulla Springs was busting at the seams with people anxious to see who had won the best of the best for the Annual Wakulla County Chamber Business Excellence Awards.
    This year we received a record 210 total nominations.
    Again, this year Ameris Bank generously continued their title sponsorship of our Business Excellence Awards. We could not accomplish events such as this without their sponsorship.

    Chamber President

    The holiday season is upon us and just as quickly as it got here it will be over. During this time I like to take a few minutes and reflect upon things I’m thankful for. I’m thankful for many things: family, friends, health, our troops, and many other things.
