Advertising & Sponsorship Opportunities: During our annual events and miscellaneous projects, we ask our members to donate door prize items, silent auction items or sponsorships to get their name out. Participate with an ad on our area map and chamber website. There are also newspaper/radio advertising opportunities throughout the year. This allows us to bring in additional activities and events we would otherwise be unable to have.
E-Blasts: E-Blasts are email notifications sent out to members and those opting in to receive information from the Chamber. The Chamber provides this service, free of charge, to alert your fellow members to all the happenings, programs, projects and activities of your busy organization. Our members can use this tool as often as they’d like. Send us an email that you’d like to be sent out to the entire membership and/or those interested in the McGregor Area. E-Blast Opt-out is available if you choose not to receive these alerts.
