Who's it for?
Local businesses in the High Country-region of North Carolina.
What problem does it solve?
As a local business, you understand the importance of keeping yourself and other independent businesses and farms visible, vital, and growing- but how do you achieve this?
How does it help?
HCLF Membership offers different levels of membership that give you the opportunity to network with like-minded member businesses, organizations, and farmers while promoting your business and strengthening YOUR local economy!
Membership Criteria for Local Business: 1. Is your business privately held? 2. Do the business owners who have a controlling interest of more than 50% live in the High Country? 3. Can your business make independent decisions regarding the name and look of your business, all business purchasing, practices and distribution? 4. Do you pay all your own marketing, rent, and other business expenses? 5. Is your business based locally and has no corporate or national headquarters outside the state? If you can answer “yes” to these questions, we invite you to join High Country Local First at a business level, sustaining or founding level. If these questions don’t define your business, please join us in supporting our local economy at an individual level! If you would like to join, please send a check to High Country Local First 164 South Depot St Boone, NC 28607, please include type of membership and contact information. Or purchase a membership on our website!!
