TICONDEROGA — The Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) is pleased to announce that their 6th Annual Chamber Day will be held on Tuesday, April 12.
Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce Staff, Board Members, Ambassador, and volunteers will hand deliver the 2016/2017 TACC Membership Plaques to Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce members within the Ticonderoga Area. Plaques will be delivered throughout the day. Plaques to Chamber members outside the area will be mailed. If members are not open or the TACC is unable to hand deliver a plaque on Chamber Day those plaques will be mailed as well.
In addition, the chamber will host their monthly Open House & Services with the North Country Small Business Development Center (NCSBDC) 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. That evening the chamber will also host a Business Seminar entitled “Online Branding 101” presented by eVision Digital Marketing in coordination with the NCSBDC. Refreshments will be provided by The Pub.
Chamber Day gives the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce an opportunity to directly connect with their members as well as thank them for their continued support and dedication to the chamber and the community as a whole. TACC Members and Partners make all of the efforts of the chamber to make the Ticonderoga Area an exceptional place to live, work, and visit possible.
“Please feel free to stop and talk to a TACC Staff Member, Board Member, or Ambassador if you see them throughout the Ticonderoga Area on Chamber Day. We encourage all members to display their plaque in a location where community members and visitors can easily see it. In addition throughout 2016 the TACC will hold ‘Spot A Chamber Plaque’ contests on their social media accounts,” said TACC Executive Director Matthew J. Courtright.
Chamber members receive an array of benefits including marketing, promotion, publicity, and exposure through listings on the Chamber’s website and printed business directory, member referrals, business referrals, business support, services, trainings and seminars, marketing and networking opportunities, a listing on the Lake Champlain Regional website, and much more.
In addition to the benefits offered by the chamber, Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce members become associate members of the Plattsburgh North Country Chamber of Commerce which gives them access to a commerce card discount program, health insurance administrator, and energy savings eligibility. Chamber Members also receive communications on a weekly basis and can submit information to be shared in the Monthly Member News.
Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce members, through their membership, also support all of the work of the chamber for the betterment of the entire Ticonderoga Area. The majority of the chamber’s funding is provided by Members and Partners in addition to fundraising events/activities.
“Without the support of our members and partners all the TACC does would not be possible. We are truly honored to serve, market, and promote our members and the entire Ticonderoga Area. We work hard each and every day to ensure we are living our mission and tag line as well as striving to reach our vision. Without your support our efforts would not be possible. In addition to the benefits we offer, you support all aspects of our work,” said Courtright.
