CHAMBER MEMBER E-NEWSLETTER
  

Time for Spring Cleaning

Now that mud season (and apparently still winter) is upon us, it's a good time for some Spring Cleaning at your business, but it's not all about rags and Swiffers.

Take some time to check out your listing on the Burke Area website ,  www.burkevermont.com and email the Chamber to let us know of any updates, new photos, etc. 

Make sure to let us know of any events, special promotions, business news, or even a  facebook post you want shared so that we can help you promote your business.  The Chamber has almost 300 members now and we can't possibly keep up with everyone.  The only way for us to know what's happening at your business is if you tell us.   Just drop a quick email to  burkechamber@burkevermont.com and we will share your news via the website, enews, or facebook.

Be sure to like us on Facebook  and send us a link to your fb page so we can like you in return.

Don't forget, our website is not just for tourists.  It's YOUR online guide for All Things Burke.  Are you looking for a caterer, contractor, accountant...? Check out the directory pages for local services and support your neighbors and fellow business owners.  Have guests coming to town who need a place to stay or eat? You'll find all that on the website along with a robust events calendar.  

We encourage you to also add a link to the Chamber website, and if possible, the Burke Area logo, to your own website.  CLICK HERE to download the Burke Area logo and link it to www.burkevermont.com.  

Other great links to share...

The One Burke Project just launched a new website so you can stay up to date on the initiatives and meetings.  Check them out on facebook, too.

The Town of Burke website has information about town services and town meetings.

It's all about community here...stay informed and keep us informed.   Let's all work together and gear up for another great summer season!
