Chamber Day will be celebrated in Ticonderoga.
The fourth annual observance by the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce will feature the presentation of membership plaques and an open house Wednesday, April 2.
“Chamber Day gives the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce an opportunity to greet and talk with members as well as thank them for their continued support and dedication to the chamber and the community,” Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director, said. “Please feel free to stop and talk to a TACC staff member, ambassador or board member if you see them throughout the community on Chamber Day. We encourage all members to display their plaque in a location where community members and visitors can easily see it.”
The Ti chamber will deliver 2014 membership plaques to local businesses that day. Plaques to chamber members outside the area will be mailed.
The chamber will also host an open house 1 to 3 p.m. at its office at 94 Montcalm St., Suite 1 in Ticonderoga.
“Businesses and organizations that are not-yet members interested in learning more about the chamber of commerce and the benefits of being a member are encouraged to attend,” Courtright said. “Current chamber members wishing to learn more about the benefits of being a member or have questions are welcome to attend.”
For information or to make an appointment during the open house contact the TACC office at 585-6619 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Chamber members receive an array of benefits including marketing, promotion, publicity and exposure through listings on the chamber’s website and printed business directory, member referrals, business support, services, trainings and seminars, marketing and networking opportunities and much more,” Courtright said.
In addition to the benefits offered by the local chamber, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce members become associate members of the Plattsburgh North Country Chamber of Commerce which gives them access to a commerce card discount program, health insurance administrator and energy savings eligibility.
Members also receive chamber communications on a weekly basis and can submit information to be shared in the monthly “Member News.”
“Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce members, through their membership, also support the work of the chamber and the community as a whole,” Courtright said. “Members’ investment in the chamber allows us to plan and host free community events, events that draw area visitors, and assist area organizations with their events and projects.
“In addition we are able to provide small business support, services and resources, business referrals as well as answer many community and visitor questions and requests via phone, email, and mail on a daily basis,” he said. “It also enables the chamber to send visitor area information packets upon request, keep an online calendar of events and provide an array of benefits to all of our members.”
The chamber also works to promote economic growth in the community, Courtright said.
“Our members and partners allow the chamber to fulfill our mission and work towards our vision,” he said.
