Dear Members and Friends,
Spring has finally arrived in the beautiful East Mountains, and the East Mountain Chamber of Commerce is in full bloom, planning great things for our Members and Friends of the community.
SAVE THE DATE!
The East Mountain Chamber of Commerce will present the first ever Taste of the East Mountains on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017 between 10 a.m.-4 p.m. It will be a public event held at Legacy Church in Edgewood. We will be inviting the general public to come taste and vote for the best tasting food. Member Food Vendors can participate for free, and other Members will have the option of setting up a table to display their products or services for free. This is your chance to get out, have some fun, meet your neighbors and fellow business owners, strengthen your business presence, and sample some of the greatest food available. There will be a bake-off as well, open to the general public, so if you have a secret dessert recipe, this will be the time to show it off!
Besides using regular word of mouth networking and media ads, we will be using the Internet and Social Media to promote the event. Come to our First Thursday Luncheon to find out how you can promote your Business at Taste of the East Mountains and anywhere using an Online Presence and/or Social Media!
Technology Expert Nancy Carpenter of Automated Systems, Inc. and Social Media Expert Bobbi Chavez of Social B will be introducing a series of hands-on tutorials and classes to show you how to make the most of the Internet and Social Media. Whether you're new to the world of technology or a super-techie, there is much to learn in order to have a significant working online presence with so much competition out there.
We look forward to showing you how to utilize Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linked in, and our East Mountain Chamber of Commerce website to your greatest advantage! We will be teaching why you need an online presence, how to know with certainty if your online presence is “working” or not, and how to intelligently know where your online presence is “broken” so you don’t waste time and money doing the wrong things to fix it.
There will be more information available at the First Thursday Luncheon Meeting on 4/06/17 at Los Vecinos Community Center. Please join us! Food will be provided by valued member The Greenside Cafe. Remember to RSVP at info@EastMountainChamber.com and tell Gail if you have any special food needs.
Until Thursday, have a wonderful week, get out and enjoy the early spring here in the East Mountains!
Nancy Carpenter, President
East Mountain Chamber of Commerce
