Partnerships or Sponsorships
Chamber members are given the opportunity to market their business through various sponsorship and advertising opportunities. We promote tourism and shopping locally with profiles, print & radio ads as well as through social media sources and other publications. We go the extra mile by submitting our events to local event calendars as well as press release submissions to the area’s media sources to generate even greater exposure.

Referring new residents and businesses to our members and doing business with the members ourselves is very important to us as a Chamber.
