Ribbon Cuttings

Ribbon cuttings have been postponed until further notice due to current restrictions. We hope to resume celebrations later this summer and will keep members updated as circumstances change. Though we're unable to perform them currently, ribbon cuttings can still be scheduled by emailing Laura Ewan or calling (309) 829-1186.

Let's celebrate!


The Chamber hosts ribbon cutting and groundbreaking ceremonies throughout the month as a way of celebrating milestones for our Members. On the big day, we'll bring the big scissors and ribbon, and invite our Chamber Ambassadors and State Representatives to the celebration. Feel free to incorporate an open house or other festivities into the ceremony, it's your day! To celebrate your grand opening, anniversary or location move contact Laura Ewan, Membership Services Manager, for more information or download our ribbon cutting guidelines.
