Small Business Workshops
Specifically geared to the owners operating their own slice of the American dream.

These programs benefit the Carl G. Hefner Enterprise Center.

Special Events

Annual Community Awards Banquet
The name pretty much says it all – but THIS is our favorite event of the year! Not quite ‘black tie’ but not quite ‘blue jeans’ either… well maybe it’s both! In Ozark we like to celebrate all the success that has been realized over the past year. The Chamber partners with the Finley River Community Foundation to recognize top educators and also those that serve & protect. The grand finale is when we reveal the Citizen of the Year, Chamber Star of the Year, and the Business of the Year! You don’t want to miss it!
