New member drive
The Chamber is initiating a “New Member” drive this month. Businesses joining the Gore Mountain Region Chamber this month are offered the remainder of this fiscal year, through June 30, 2013, for half the annual membership dues. That’s getting seven months of membership for the cost of six months.
Annual membership dues for a business (non-accommodation) with one to two employees is normally $155; the half price cost is only $77.50. (Check the membership application for different levels of membership.) Additionally, new members will receive a free banner ad for one month on the Chamber’s website (a $50 value) and will be included in the Chamber’s new 2013 Business Directory.
The new directory includes information for all Chamber members, and three maps — a walking map of downtown North Creek, and three smaller insert maps for North River, Wevertown and Route 28 from Main Street to the Adirondack Community Outreach Center. Chamber members will be identified on these maps. Off-map members will be listed as well.
Regular member benefits include: health insurance; an energy saving program; special member rate for propane fuel; discounted co-op ad rates for key tourism and travel publications; business development training seminars and workshops; promotion of member business, activities, and specials on the Chamber’s website, Facebook page, monthly newsletter and calendar of events; and networking opportunities via monthly mixers.
