Visitor Guides & Chamber Directories

 

Visitor Guides are the perfect way to welcome new families and guests to your city. It informs the visitors and brings them up-to-date on current events and local information and gives them a listing of businesses in the Chamber of Commerce. In addition, the guide gives current members an opportunity to advertise to potential new customers. Visitor guides are offered in a variety of sizes. Your custom designed guide can include a letter from the chairman or the mayor, the history of your community, historic landmarks, information on local education, community education and finance, business and economy, parks and recreation, community profile, health care, annual events, shopping and dining, clubs, organizations and churches just to name a few.

Business Directories are a novel way for residents in your community and visitors to learn about your chamber members. This directory gives the members an opportunity to tell their stories through advertising opportunities in the brochure. In the brochure, you can feature the chamber, the history of the community, a community profile, festivals and events, a letter from the city, economic development, the public schools, community education, and an alphabetical listing of the member business category.
