Engage with members
Promote your products, services or upcoming events with a member-to-member offer. Member-to-member offers are an effective marketing tool reaching thousands of members.
Or engage directly with members via an email promotion. This is exclusive to Chamber members’ and are only available for booking once a week (Friday’s) to encourage high opening rates and avoid saturating our audience. *Fee applies.
