Work is finishing on the 2023 Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Directory. We distribute over 7,000 of these directories to visitors, relocation hopefuls, and even hometown heroes interested in learning more about our local businesses. They include historical information and everything to see and do in Hopkins County. The best part is that they include an alphabetical and categorical listing of your business.

With Echo Publishing, LeeAnn Peugh is contacting businesses to see if you are interested in placing an ad in the directory.

The rates are affordable and one of the best ways to represent your business. You may also contact the Chamber, and I will pass your information along to her.

If your business wants to be in the directory, please maintain your current membership. The directories include only current members. If unsure, please get in touch with the Chamber at or by calling 903-885-6515.
