Membership Benefits

Joining Florence County Progress, Inc. demonstrates your commitment to the continued growth of Florence County and ensures that it will continue to be an even stronger contender for new jobs and new investment.

Membership also includes these additional  incentives:

  • Priority contact with businesses locating and expanding in Florence County.
  • Quarterly newsletters detailing the local economic situation as well as spotlights on existing industries.
  • Preferred Vendor Directory:  Progress members are listed alphabetically and by product/ service.  The Preferred Vendor Directory is available in a printed version and is handed out to all Progress members.  It is also available on the Partnership and Progress websites in an easily viewable and printable version.  Each member has the opportunity to have a “hotlink” to their companies website.  The Partnership staff strongly encourages patronage of Florence County Progress, Inc. members.  After all, these are the organizations that have invested their financial and human capital in order to make Florence County a better place for your business!  Quite often we are requested to provide the names of firms that can provide a service or product. As members of Florence County Progress, Inc., we will always recognize and suggest members of our organization prior to providing information on non-member firms. It is another example of the value provided by membership in Florence County Progress, Inc.

    • Progress annual meetings

“As they say in marketing, when the economy is down is not the time to cut your marketing budget, the same applies to the marketing of our wonderful community.  You will find that your support of Progress, both financially, and with your time, comes back to you through a stronger business community and a stronger quality of life for your family.”
