Annual Awards Banquet
The Annual Banquet recognizes the achievements of the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce, Ardmore Development Authority, Ardmore Tourism Authority and the Chamber of Commerce Foundation. This event is held in February and recognizes board members and officers of all organizations.
These Chamber volunteers perform ribbon cuttings for all new businesses in Ardmore and those having completed major rennovations. Ambassadors consist of business men and women throughout the community. The Ambassadors recruit new members and assist in retaining current investors.
Festival of Lights Committee
This annual auction is held to raise funds for the Holiday Drive-Thru Display at Regional Park. This popular event is held each year in November.
The Education committee represents volunteers from both the business and education community. They meet quarterly to address issues affecting education and are responsible for the Annual Education Report to the Community.
Total Resource Campaign
The Total Resource Campaign is an opportunity for local businesses to purchase sponsorship for all Chamber of Commerce services, products, events, and publications. In turn, these sponsoring businesses are able to gain higher visibility in the community while also raising money to meet the Chamber of Commerce's yearly goal for the campaign. Sponsorship opportunities include top billing at the events of your choice, purchasing your ad in next year's Directory, reserving your ad on the Ardmore Map, including your brochure in the relocation packets, and many more.
Housing Task Force
Through the combined efforts of the Ardmore Chamber of Commerce and ADA, a housing committee was formed to address the housing needs of the area. The committee is currently finalizing the covenants and procedure for selection of builders and developers.
Work Force Development
The ADA along with area businesses developed this task force with representatives from the various industries, education, and social services such as DHS and Workforce Oklahoma. Workforce issues are identified, discussed and strategies developed to address the issues.
