The Gordon County Chamber of Commerce announces 30 sponsorships have been claimed for Keep It In The County 2021, showing record support for the local spending campaign still going strong as it enters its 12th year.

First conceived at the chamber’s 2008 planning retreat and launched at a July 2009 booster breakfast sponsored by Starr-Mathews Agency, Keep It In The County has become one of the chamber’s signature programs. The goals of the program are to educate citizens about the importance of local spending and the economic impact of those choices, and to provide sponsors with significant marketing opportunities at substantial discounts.

“The Chamber is proud of its programs, especially those that serve individual members, as well as the entire business community. Keep It In The County has been able provide sponsors with deeply discounted promotion packages while also reaching the public about the value and impact of their decisions to shop locally,” said Kathy Johnson, president and CEO of the Gordon County Chamber of Commerce.
