Portia Burke and Francine Burke from The Country Florist & Gifts receive their 2012 chamber plaque during last year’s Chamber Day. The third annual event will be Tuesday, April 2.
Ticonderoga Chamber Day will again be celebrated by the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce.
The third annual event will be Tuesday, April 2, and will be highlighted by chamber staff, ambassadors, board members and volunteers delivering 2013 members plaques.
“Chamber Day gives the Ticonderoga Area Chamber of Commerce an opportunity to greet and talk with members as well as thank them for their continued support and dedication to the chamber and the community,” said Matthew Courtright, chamber executive director. “Please feel free to stop and talk to a TACC staff member, ambassador or board member if you see them throughout the community on Chamber Day. We encourage all members to display their plaque in a location where community members and visitors can easily see it.”
Chamber Day will also feature an insurance open house 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the chamber office at 94 Montcalm St., Suite 1. Chamber members who currently access the health insurance benefit as well as others interested in learning more are encourage to attend.
People can make an appointment by calling the TACC office at 585-6619 or Emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Walk-in visitors for the open house are also welcome.
“One of the benefits of being a chamber member is insurance eligibility through our partnership with the Plattsburgh North Country Chamber of Commerce,” Courtright said. “Please stop by to speak with Sandy Duquette, the chamber’s health insurance administrator.”
Chamber members also receive benefits such as marketing, promotion, publicity, exposure, credibility, member referrals, access to marketing and networking opportunities, a commerce card discount program, health insurance eligibility, energy savings eligibility, small business support and services, seminars, trainings, chamber communications and more, Courtright pointed out.
Another benefit is the chamber’s support of the community, he said.
“Members’ investment in the chamber allows us to plan and host free community events, events that draw area visitors and assist area organizations with their events and projects,” Courtright said. “In addition they are able to provide small business support, services and resources, business referrals as well as answer many community and visitor questions and requests via phone, email, and mail on a daily basis. It also enables the chamber to send visitor area information packets upon request, keep an online calendar of events and provide an array of benefits for all of our members. Supporting the chamber also supports economic development and growth, our partners and the communities the chamber serves.”
