New Social Media Benefit Guidelines
The Pandemic has brought along some changes that we are fairly certain won't be going anywhere anytime soon. One of those things is Marketing and Communicating in the digital age. Here at the Chamber we want to make sure that we are serving you and your business in all avenues. We have outlined below what Social Media Benefits you can expect based on your membership level.

When you provide your content to be posted on the Evergreen Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, please include a graphic and copy. Email this information to marketing@evergreenchamber.org along with when you would prefer it to be posted. We will try our very best to accommodate the desired date of posting based on the rest of the Chamber posting calendar.

Feel free to reach out to marketing@evergreenchamber.org with any questions or for additional clarification.
Leads Group Opening
Women 2 Women Leads Group has available spots!
They meet monthly on the 2nd Wednesday. Right now they are virtual but hope to go back to in-person this fall. When in person, they meet at the Evergreen fire station. Dues at $48 per year. 

"We are a group of ladies who work to support one another in our business (and sometimes personal) life by getting to know one another and understanding what others offer. By doing so, we can do business directly but we also frequently share one another's information with people not in the group!"

 If anyone has questions or would like to join us as a guest to see what our meetings are like, they can reach out to Mindy. Mindy@AlphaPixelReach.com or 720-526-3636.
