Member Testimonials

The Poteau Chamber of Commerce understands the importance of working with the members of the community, the business leaders in the community and the City Government.  They are constantly bringing all of these entities together with not only events, but also with communication products.
— Sue Ann Loggains, Adams Abstract Company

The Poteau Chamber of Commerce has proven themselves a valuable partner and they make getting involved with the community fun and exciting.  The Chamber staff and Board of Directors are continuously working from one networking project to the next.  Their fresh approach to each promotional event keeps us on the edge of our seat.

The Poteau Chamber of Commerce perceives the seriousness of working with new businesses in their community. We opened our sixth store location in Poteau this past August; Mrs. Karen Wages and her staff are professional and sharp at what they do for family owned businesses. We take pride in our company and our customers come first; if I wasn’t for our great customers and employees, we wouldn’t be what we are today. The great inventor and businessman Thomas Edison quoted, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
— Calvin Cummings, Don's E-Z Pay

“Above the ordinary,” serves as the perfect mission statement for the Chamber and its staff. Always networking, accommodating, and advertising for the benefit of Poteau and its members. Central National Bank is a proud member and honored to work so closely with an association that encourages leadership and creates experiences that exceed expectations with every event and promotion. As said by John Quincy Adams, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” The Chamber exemplifies these standards within our own growing community.
