Chamber launches Member Calendar
We have exciting news for you! The MOV Chamber is officially launching a Member Calendar on our chamber website.
What is a Member Calendar you ask?
It is a centralized location for our MOV Chamber Members to post their organization’s upcoming events and promotions. This calendar is separate from our MOV Chamber events calendar.
The member calendar will be shared with the community so they can stay up-to-date with member’s event / promotion information. This is your calendar and we want you to get the most out of it, so make sure you are posting your events often!
The MOV Chamber Member Calendar is a benefit of membership for our members, which means only MOV Chamber members can post on the calendar. We suggest you add your event at least (2) weeks prior to the date of your event.
We launched the Member Calendar on Thursday morning at 8:30am and by 8:49am we had our first submission. Thank you to Hornor & Harrison for submitting your event!
While event submission is a benefit of membership in the MOV Chamber of Commerce, ANYONE can check out the events/sales/promotions that are posted by going to www.movchamber.org and under the Events tab at the top right, just click Member Calendar.
And if you or your organization are planning an upcoming event, the Member Calendar is a great place to check to see what other events are going on during that time.
The submission form is easy to navigate. You will need the following information when submitting your event / promotion:
∫ Event Name
∫ Start Date / Time
∫ End Date / Time
∫ Where / Address
∫ Description of Event
∫ Contact Person
∫ Contact Phone Number
∫ Contact Email
∫ Image (if you cannot load your image, email it to us and we can upload it on our end)
Once you submit your event, we will review and approve within 24 hours. We will reach out to you if we have any questions or see any issues. If something changes regarding your event (date, time, etc), please reach out to us and let us know. We can make updates to your event at any time.
So, if you’re like us, I bet you have a To Do list for sharing your event:
Create event flyer
Load flyer onto your company website
Post on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.)
Share with the news media (TV, newspaper, radio, etc.)
Post flyers in your place of business for customers to see
Update employees about the event during staff meetings
Email information to customers
Now it’s time to add the MOV Chamber Member Calendar to your event To Do list as one more opportunity to get the word out about your event, sale or activity.
Not yet an MOV Chamber member and want to share your event and access other member benefits? Let’s talk!
