The St. Marys Area Chamber of Commerce is working hard to help our members spread the word about the wonderful products and services they offer. We have developed Membership Mondays as way for the community to learn and get to know our members. Membership Mondays is a time when our Executive Director Abby Balster interviews an employee of member.

During this interview, questions are asked about both the business and the person being interviewed. Our hope is to utilize Facebook Live for this interview and possibly answer questions in real time. Some of the questions we ask include what's a typical day like for you, how does the Chamber help you, what is an interesting fact about your business, who inspires you, tell us about your business/organization, what do you love most about St. Marys, etc.

We have done two interviews so far with the response on Facebook being excellent. You can find them on our Facebook Page and you will see these interviews are very informal and relaxed (and that we are still learning and developing our skills). If you are interested in featuring your business, contact Abby or Diana at 419-300-4611.
