I am happy to announce that the Wetzel-Tyler Chamber of Commerce is upgrading our website! We have contracted with new member, Eric Hersey Web Designs for the work and we couldn’t be more excited at the prospects of all that this new design can offer to our members and community partners.

The package that we have chosen is the WebPlus+ and it’s a real powerhouse! Members will be able to post their own calendar of events and help to keep their activities front and center for visitors to the site. As many of you know, we are very short staffed, so we are trying to streamline our input while offering a very polished, user-friendly website experience. Our expected launch date is early June, so please stay tuned. I think that you’ll love the changes!

Take a look at some of Eric’s projects:

  • Gold, Khourey & Turak - https://www.gkt.com/
