    Who here is a member of or helps run a Chamber of Commerce?

    Hey guys, who here is either a member of or helps run a Chamber of Commerce? We are starting up one here in our small town of 1200 and are looking for any and all guidance as to what all we can provide for our members. Our Chamber is open to both Businesses and individuals and what we provide so far is of course advertisement for the businesses and bettering our community through projects such as cleanup days around town and such...Our little town has been in a sort of decline for a few years and a few of us citizens have gotten together and are going to try our darndest to resurrect what was a once great little city. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hey Executioner:

    We have a very strong CofC where I live.

    The Chamber puts on two major art shows a year in an effort to bring outsiders to town. Also, it has a Business Showcase annually, which lets businesses set up and market themselves. A big draw of the Showcase is "A Taste of Fountain Hills," where area restaurants serve samples of some of their menu.

    There's also a monthly breakfast meeting with a speaker (talking about business-related stuff, usually), plus ribbon-cutting ceremonies for new businesses and a monthly social mixer, which gives people a chance to network in a social setting.

    The Chamber building itself has a room devoted to visitors, and any member can have literature, coupons, brochures, etc. ready for out-of-towners to pick up.

    Some of these things won't apply to Erie, of course, because where I am is sort of a vacation area (so we depend on tourist dollars), but maybe some of it can help.
