"Members in Motion" Media E-Blast
This is an exclusive service for Valpo Chamber Members. The Chamber will send a monthly "Members in Motion" newsletter blast, focusing on special announcements members wish to share with the rest of the membership. This is a member-only opportunity to submit business articles — i.e. awards, new additions to staff or promotions of title, change of business location, events that are 150 words or less. Articles are subject to approval and may be edited. Photos and .pdf documents will not be accepted.
Due to space constraints, articles will be accepted on a first-come/first-serve basis. Please send articles electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com, subject line: Members in Motion. All articles must be received by close of business the Monday BEFORE the third Friday of the month in order to be blasted to membership the third Friday of the month. Late submissions will not be accepted.
Valpo Chamber members are welcome to place marketing literature in the public brochure racks in the high-traffic lobby of the Chamber office. This is excellent exposure, and it’s free! For more information, stop by the Chamber offices.
Business After Hours
As a chamber member you have the opportunity to host a Business After Hours at your place of business and showcase your services to all the members of the Valpo Chamber. Business After Hours are held once a month and usually fall on the 3rd Thursday of the month. On most occasions the chamber member host will offer appetizers and entertainment.
