New members of Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce were welcomed by existing members, including FWKCC’s board and staff, to the Chamber’s Fall New Member Orientation, which took place in Farragut Community Center Tuesday, Oct. 13.

FWKCC, which was formed in 1987, currently has 640 members, said Julie Blaylock, its president/CEO.

After enjoying lunch from Jet’s Pizza, new members learned about the benefits of joining FWKCC, such as advertising, warm introductions to media contacts, ribbon cuttings and networking opportunities among others.

“We had 30 attend our orientation, which worked out perfectly for the distanced spacing and seating we planned on,” Blaylock said. “Everyone was able to make what we know were new connections for themselves, but also have enough space to feel comfortable during the program.

“The majority of those attendees had joined only within the last six months, so it truly was a ‘new’ member orientation; although we also had a couple of long-term members, like our ambassadors or board (members) and even one of our lifetime members (Alexander Dumas),” she added.
