NOTES FROM THE PRESIDENT

Members are at the heart of what we do so on this Valentine’s Day my staff and I will be making some surprise visits to some members. This is our way of saying “Thank You” for all you do to make our community what it is. The customer service you provide to customers and your attention to detail deserve recognition.

Members can follow our Valentine’s Day adventures on both our Facebook and our new Instagram page @Bethlehemnychamber.

As I have been meeting with members, I continue to educate them about the ways the Chamber can share information about your business or organization with the greater community. Our website readership continues to grow. Sharing information on our site is a great way to get the word out. You can share information on our website and it will be considered for inclusion in this newsletter.

Because you are at the heart of what we do, we are constantly looking for ways to help meet your needs. We have recently entered into a partnership with Energy Next . You will be contacted by Joanne Forrester from Energy Next who will provide you with more detailed information on the program. This program allows you to reduce your energy costs by purchasing from top tier suppliers. For additional information please click here . Members can anticipate saving between 12-20% on their energy costs.

Another money saving benefit we offer our members is a savings on Constant Contact . Even if you are already using the product you can switch your account to a Chamber account and save money. Details on this program can be found by clicking here .
