Engaging with the Chamber
Throughout the year, as we talk with YOU, the chamber members, the number one reason you invest in the chamber is the promotion and marketing opportunities. YOU have sited our website, networking events, and our in-office marketing wall as the best way to promote and market.
If you’re thinking “yep- exactly” then I wish you a Happy New Year- now get back to work!
But, if you are thinking “what?!” then this is for YOU!
The Chamber isn’t just an organization you give money to each year for a window sticker, although it can be.
We really want to have YOU engaged, and active in the opportunities we offer.
Here are just a few options to be more engaged in the chamber, your business and the community:
