The Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce’s Southside Council honored Chattanooga Presents! as its first-ever Business of the Month.                          

Chattanooga Presents! is a company which produces public events, concerts and programming that promote Chattanooga as a center of activity, broaden the cultural offerings in the community and contribute to a vibrant and livable city, officials said. 

The Southside Council will announce new Business of the Month honorees at its regularly-scheduled luncheon meetings, where the winner from the previous month will stand alongside council leaders to acknowledge the next recipient. At the end of the year, all featured businesses will be considered for a Business of the Year designation.

The Southside Council is one of the Chattanooga Chamber’s oldest and most diverse councils. Meetings take place the first Thursday of each month at the Southside Recreation Center. Guests are invited to arrive early and stay late for networking, and all members of the general public are welcome to attend. Admission is $10 and lunch is included.
