RIBBON CUTTING? GOACC has supplies for your company.  Are you planning a grand opening for your new business? A ground breaking ceremony for a new building? Perhaps your business is celebrating a significant anniversary and you want to have a party to commemorate the occasion. Inside these pages, published by Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce, we’ve put together 7 Easy Steps to planning and staging a special event – steps ranging from selecting the date to getting media coverage.

Here is one of the tools that we give to our members for their special events: HOW tos for Your Special Event.

Gift Certificate Program: Only current GOACC Members can participate in the Shop Olean Gift Certificate program.  Welcome to a "value-added benefit" of the Greater Olean Area Chamber of Commerce. In standing with our goal to help "Members Support Members," we have a gift certificate program to help create sales growth for our member merchants, and to add convenience to communities' purchasing needs. 
As a participant of the Chamber's gift certificate program, you'll help drive dollars back into the community, provide a solution for members who offer holiday bonuses and/or incentive plans, and help maintain and grow Chamber member enrollment.  If you’re interested in adding your business to the list, please give us a call.  It’s as easy as that!
Redemption Disclaimer -- The redemption of Chamber gift certificates is a privilege of Chamber membership. The printed redemption list is current at the time of certificate sale. If a member cancels membership, the member is no longer eligible to accept certificates. Be aware of this policy.
The Chamber app boasts a host of features including a daily events calendar, an interactive directory of Chambers members, and information on special events. The app will also be updated with Chamber news releases and monthly newsletters.

Discount Theme Park Tickets - GOACC offers you and your employees discount ticket prices to regional amusement parks - Darien Lake and Waldameer.  The tickets, which need to be purchased at the GOACC office, are anyday tickets.  For more information on the tickets, please click on the park logo above.
