Hello Chamber Members!
Breathe Deep…Spring is finally here!
The Chamber has been buzzing with activity as we prepare for our 33rd Annual Golf Classic sponsored by Bar Harbor Bank and Trust! It is hard for me to imagine what the Chamber was like in 1985 when this first began! The tradition continues at the Rutland Country Club on Friday May 18th! Please join us for lots of fun and great golf!
We are very excited about the many new members we have invited into the Chamber over the past few months! It is great that people are genuinely interested in what we are doing and believe that together we can make Rutland a great place to live work, play and raise a family. If you know of anyone who is considering membership, please contact Chris Shaddock. Our new referral program can land you with some nice benefits!
Our Regional Marketing Initiative – Real Rutland Campaign has started into year 2. You may see some video crews around the county getting some “real” shots of the way we live. Along with the cable television and digital options, you may also “hear” our messaging on VPR and Spotify. We look forward to building on year 1 and continue to attract people to our area.
We are in full swing of recruiting for our next FACES Membership Directory. This is a fantastic publication of the real faces of our Chamber Members. It gets distributed throughout the County as well as to people moving to our area through human resource departments and real estate agencies. The book is beautiful (we’ll have a nice new cover), a professional photograph is included for your business and it is a great investment. You can sign up online or give us a quick call. But you need to do this soon, we have a hard deadline this year of June 1st.
Thanks very much for being a member of the Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce!
