Standard Investments

Q: When does my membership begin & renew? A: Membership investments do not become ACTIVE until you remit your first year’s membership. They begin in the month in which you join/remit, continue for a full 12 months, and are scheduled for renewal in your anniversary month. We send your renewal statement by email & mail 60 days before it is due. Businesses who need to request pro-rate calendar billing must call the chamber at 865-675-7057.

Q: I’d like to go ahead and join as an Enterprise Member today! How do I do that? A: First, thank you for supporting our community and all the businesses and entrepreneurs in it with your above and beyond contribution! Currently, we request that you please call the chamber at 865-675-7057 to have staff manually bill you for your selected Enterprise Level and–if required–standard # of staff standard membership together.

Our Propeller,  Anchor,  and Captain levels of Enterprise Membership also require standard membership based on your total number of F/T staff (i.e. A sole owner/operator with 1 staff joining as a Propeller Enterprise Member would remit $150 + $500 = $650). Admiral and Admiral Elite levels include any standard membership investment. We are currently working to find an EASY way to offer purchase of Enterprise memberships online!

Q: Do you offer a discounted rate for non-profits? A: No. However, since many of our member non-profits rely on large volunteer bases to accomplish their worthy goals, we only use their often small staff size to calculate their annual investment.

Q: How do I SAVE 5% on my annual renewal? A: Easy! Set up an automatic payment profile by logging into your Online Member Portal & click “Company > Billing > Payment Profiles.” Add a debit, credit or ACH profile & check the box to notify us that you want that payment method used for recurring charges. We’ll take care of the rest!
