E-MAIL BLAST SPONSORSHIP – MEMBER EMAILS

Each week, the Chamber sends out a detailed “Upcoming Events” e-blast to over 1,300 members. For $200 per month, Chamber members have the opportunity to sponsor these emails with a display advertisement and a link to their website or email address.

Starting in 2017, we will also feature weekly e-blasts that highlight special events and member news. Members will be invited to participate free of charge for a limited number of e-blasts. Participation in additional emails will be available at a nominal fee.

For information, please contact Anita Rosa, the Chamber’s Vice President of Finance & Operations, at 860-482-6586 or anita@nwctchamberofcommerce.org.

DIRECTORY
The Chamber membership directory is printed annually and a digital version is posted online. Each member is listed alphabetically, by category and by contact person. Members are asked to update their company profiles each fall. In addition to company information, Chamber programs, services and events are also highlighted in the directory, as well as demographic information on the 21 towns in the region, and a listing of state and federal elected officials.
Display advertising opportunities for member businesses are available in our forthcoming Directory. E&M Consulting, which will produce the new directory for 2017 and 2018, will also be responsible for all display advertising. For information, please contact E&M at 800-572-0011, 860-656-9254 or jack@emconsultinginc.com.
