Promoting Your Business Through the Chamber

One of the great benefits of being a Chamber member is that you can promote your business marketing through the Greater Mount Airy Chamber of Commerce's social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn), newsletter, and Email Blasts.

Instructions for Social Media:
We encourage you to create a post on your own social media pages first. Once that is completed, email us a link to your post and we will share it from there. That way the posts will always direct viewers back to your profile.

Instructions for Newsletters and Email Blasts:
We prefer that you email your information as a 8.5x11 flyer in .jpeg or .pdf format. Images with text and online links are also acceptable.
(Email Blasts are $100 per email.)

Email links and marketing materials to Mallory Smith, Chamber Marketing Manager, via Mallory@MtAiryNCChamber.org.

ONLINE Job Fair!

The Greater Mount Airy Chamber of Commerce has decided to not host its annual Job Fair as it has in previous years due to the current Coronavirus pandemic. Instead of an in-person Job Fair, the Chamber is now hosting an virtual Job Fair; open to all companies looking for employees and the general public seeking job opportunities.

Until the end of 2020, employers are able to display job openings and company information, while job seekers are able to access this information, contact specific companies, and submit resumes.

Vendor / Sponsor Packages are available. If you are interested in learning more about this ongoing event, contact Travis Frye, Program & Events Director via Travis@MtAiryNCChamber.org, or click the button below.
