COLON AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Minutes of January 19, 2012

Meeting called to order at 12:05 PM by President Edith Doenges
Members present: Edith Doenges, Nancy Percival, Kathy Coates, Greg Bordner, Linda Musall
Absent: Karin Malesh & Mary Beth Bower

Pledge of Allegiance was recited

Motion to accept Dec. minutes & treasurers report: NP 2nd GB, passed

Discussion ensued about the ad in the River Country Tourism Guide. There have only been 3 ads sold, so the date was extended until 1/26. Our final date to get the info to Rose is Jan. 31. Kathy took the afternoon off work to stay in the office & make calls and followups. We need to really push to fill our page.

Kathy suggested we all go to “rivercountryjournal.com” to see what is on that website & to use it to advertise new programs.

Julie & Linda will be working on membership letters & request of dues.

Citizen of the Year nominations were discussed. A press release could be used to promote this.

A “Resource Center” for Chamber members is in the works for the village office. We will look into some kind of rack (either for the wall or free standing) to hold brochures and business cards of members. That way when visitors come into the Village office looking for specific services, the information will be right there. This will be another incentive to be a chamber member.

Meeting adjourned at 1:05 pm.

Respectfully submitted by
Linda Musall, Secretary
