Member Corner
Did You Know?

Did you know you, as a chamber member, can market your business without leaving your business? The Chamber understands the challenge businesses face with needing to network and market, but not having the time or man power to do it.

We encourage you to consider one or more of the following marketing solutions:
  1. Complete your online profile: this allows members and the community to easily find you.
  2. Sponsor a banner ad on the Chamber's homepage: be front and center on the Chamber's newly-redesigned website.
  3. Direct Mail Labels: market a special or upcoming event to over 700 chamber members using a direct mail piece.
  4. Hot Deals: share specials and discounts with the community on the Chamber website.
  5. Door Prizes: provide branded items or packages to be given away at Chamber events and receive business recognition.
Have questions on any of marketing ideas above? Attend member orientation on the first Monday of the month or contact Lori Krouskos.

From the President
Today we celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. His courage and leadership helped to bring change to our great nation.

My favorite quote of his is: "It may well be that we will have to repent in this generation. Not merely for the vitriolic words and actions of the bad people, but for the appalling silence and indifference of the good people who sit around and say, 'Wait on time.'" 

Steadfast in his resolve, Martin Luther King, Jr. encouraged men and women to use their voice to enact change. That sentiment is still true today.

Injustice and inequality continue to surface around the world and here at home. Do not remain silent. Use your voice.
