New Bessemer Chamber Website Goes Live!
WideNet Consulting, LLC, one of our newest chamber members, has just completed the new Bessemer Chamber of Commerce website. You’ll find it at our same web address: We’re grateful to acknowledge that WideNet is providing their service as a trade-of-services, at no direct cost to the Chamber.

The website includes general information about the chamber, the community, local tourism and attractions, economic development, info for newcomers, an electronic version of our most recent newsletter, and two calendars- one for chamber events and one for all community events. The site will also soon include asearchable online member directory.

What makes this website different than our old one is that chamber staff members are in control of all content. We can now keep our website up to date without having to wait for changes to be made by a third party, as we can make all content and calendar changes immediately using the website control panel that WideNet has developed.

WideNet has experience serving other chambers of commerce as well. The Calhoun County Chamber and the Cleburne County Chamber are both WideNet clients. In fact, the company was a recipient of one of the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce's Awards of Excellence in Small Business in 2006 and again in 2007.

WideNet also has strong ties to the greater Bessemer area. Derek Brown, one of WideNet’s owners, is an Oak Grove High School graduate and spent one summer as a college intern with the Bessemer Industrial Development Board.

WideNet currently has over 160 clients in 13 states. WideNet develops custom websites and also offers professional videography, graphic design, and custom programming services. To find out more about WideNet, go to or call 1-866-645-9235
