This annual marketing investment prominently promotes member businesses on signage, inside Chamber publications, on the website, on the mobile app, and at events throughout the year. The VCP is a terrific way to gain extensive exposure and valuable name and logo recognition.
The VCP offers four partner packages - Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze - at four price points. Each package includes incentives, complimentary tickets to events, special recognition and promotion, and sponsorship of high-profile networking and educational events.
