Episode Two: My Voice, Our Voice
One of the most important and valued functions of the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce is to act as an advocate for its member businesses on a local, regional, state, national and even global level. Whether it’s bringing political persons of importance to the area to engage in discussions with community business leaders, or taking the ideas and opinions of those business leaders directly to Vermont and US legislators in order to make change for the better, the Chamber’s government affairs and advocacy team is here to support you.
When the Chamber is able to effect change for our member businesses, everyone in the community benefits. To learn more about how LCRCC works for you, your community and your business, visit vermont.org/chamber and navigate to “Government Affairs and Advocacy.”
Episode Three: Getting Exposure
Today’s business leaders face major decisions about exactly where, when and how to market and promote. With so many avenues and platforms now available, traditional and digital alike, how do you find the best way to reach your unique target audience? The Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce is here to help. Our highly experienced sales team helps you pinpoint the optimum marketing solutions for your particular business. Best of all, we find exposure solutions to fit any budget.
Each and every LCRCC member is listed in our Member Directory, which is featured prominently on the front page of our newly launched website for tourists and locals alike, Vermont.org. The direct link from our directory to your business' site gives you a significant edge, though it barely scratches the surface of the advertising, sponsorship and other exposure opportunities the Lake Champlain Chamber offers.
