2020 sure has brought a series of challenges that has touched everyone in some way. We recently made the difficult decision to postpone the Celebration of Business Excellence Awards Ceremony until 2022. This way we can be assured that when the time is right to celebrate your achievements, it will be the BEST Awards Ceremony ever!
Like you, we will pivot and recognize the tremendous efforts that you all put forth in a different manner that suits these unprecedented times. Thank you to the many of you that have volunteered to participate in our buy local campaigns either through print, radio or social media. If you have not already participated, contact the Chamber staff to register.
The Online Chamber Store is now open, making it more convenient for you to renew your membership. We are pleased to announce the 2021 renewal fee will remain the same as the 2020 rate. If you are experiencing financial constraints a payment plan can be arranged to suit your needs.
An exclusive benefit of membership is the Buy Smart Buy Local Facebook group. The Chamber has signed up for the new version of Facebook Groups that will greatly expand the audience seeing your posts. We are actively promoting the group using the images or videos that you post, so now is the time to take advantage of this member benefit. You do not have to be on Facebook to be featured, contact the Chamber staff to learn how we can help promote your business.
We appreciate your support of the Chamber, whether it is through your membership renewal, your engagement in our social media activities, responding to the many emails, or participating in online events. Together, we can all make a difference.
– Lori Schuett, Chair
