Email Marketing

Weekly eNewsletter - Announcements
All members are welcome to submit announcements to be included in the weekly eNewsletter that is distributed Thursdays. Submission process: To have your content included, please submit a "News Release" via the member portal. All members are able to do this as often as needed at no additional charge.

Weekly eNewsletter - Ad
There is limited ad space available in the weekly eNewsletter at a rate of $500/year, $35/month, or $10/week. No more than one ad per eNewsletter will be available. First come first served. Using a small photo ad is recommended. 

eBlast
Chamber members are now able to send one solicitation eblast via the chamber. Limit 1 per member per calendar year. We will send out no more than one solicitation eBlast per week (read: only 52 slots a year) - so schedule yours early! No additional eblasts available. Example

Why are we doing this? Many people want to be able to access our directory. While members may still request printed mailing labels, we do not wish to release member emails for security reasons. As a compromise, we have introduced the limited availability of solicitation eblasts. We believe this will cut down on inbox spam (as opposed to releasing emails), but also gives our members another medium in which to market.
