The Chamber has information about tourism, clubs, organizations, business, industry, relocation & general information.

Standard business cards or tri-fold brochure sizes are highly encouraged.

eNewsletter – Ad

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.
All members are welcome to one “solicitation” social media post for Facebook per calendar year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week in advance with the content you want posted as well as the date and time to be sent out. No more than one solicitation post per week will be accepted; which means there are only 52 slots a year. First come first served. No additional posts available. Horizontal or square images reccomended.
