mchamber2 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/9/13) – An upcoming luncheon will help local and regional businesses learn about the opportunities and benefits of exporting.

The Madisonville-Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce and the Madisonville Area Manufacturers Association are partnering to host a Kentucky Export Initiative Luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 18 at the Madisonville Economic Development office, 755 Industrial Road, Madisonville.

The tentative agenda of speakers includes representatives of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, World Trade Center Kentucky, U.S. Commercial Service Small Business Services Division, the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, local business owners, and others.

“I’m pleased to partner with MAMA and to work with MAMA President Kent Waide to bring this luncheon to Madisonville,” said Chamber President Lee Lingo, who recently attended the World Trade Center Kentucky International Trade Certification Program. “Advances in technology have opened up many doors for small business, including the opportunity to export products and services.
