Hundreds of people from near and far visit or call the Chamber office looking for information on the area each year. The Chamber takes pride in referring these people to our members. We also house a tourist information center and welcome our members to display their brochures or business cards and offer free Kiosk advertising for all our members.
When a special event is planned, sales representatives from local media work with the Chamber to promote your business during the event. These cooperative efforts keep your advertising costs down. In addition, the Chamber promotes the area by purchasing ads and spearheading cooperative ad buying in state and national publications.
