Last month I talked about what exactly is a chamber of commerce, the role a chamber plays within the community, as well as briefly reviewed all that the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce does.
This month I want to discuss the importance of a central calendar of events for the area. The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce keeps an online area calendar with dates and information on events, meetings and more.
The chamber is working to improve the calendar of events in order to become a central calendar for the area. The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce is looking for area businesses, organizations and committees to share their event information as well as a schedule of upcoming events if they are available.
We are asking everyone to share their event information with the chamber to ensure we have the most up to date information on the online calendar.
The calendar will serve as a central location for community members, organizations and visitors in finding events within the area as well as a referencing tool used when planning future events in the Ticonderoga area.
In addition to sharing your event information we are asking all of you before setting a date for a new event to please reference the calendar to try to eliminate conflicts and overlapping events.
"Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success."-- Henry Ford
In order to work together to better serve the community and visitors, it is important to create a centralized calendar where information about events can be shared not only to promote the area but to eliminate scheduling conflicts. We strongly encourage everyone to please share information on upcoming events on a regular basis and as soon as the information is available. If you have a yearly calendar available please share that schedule with the chamber.
Event information can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at the chamber office which is located at 94 Montcalm St. in downtown Ticonderoga.
The chamber is working on a new website which will also have a new calendar of events. It will have a community calendar and a visitor calendar. In addition people will be able to submit their events online.
