Chamber’s Information Training Session: Help Members Support “Buy Local Day Campaign”

New Bern Chamber of Commerce

New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce will be conducting a special Member Information Center (MIC) training session on Wednesday, October 28th at 8am to help members learn how to post “hot deals” and “member-to-member incentives” on the Chamber’s web site in an effort to support a community-wide Buy Local Day.

Buy Local Day is Saturday, November 28th.  First South Bank approached the Chamber to assist them in raising awareness of the effect that buying and shopping locally has on our community.  ”There’s no better way to promote your business than to incentivize the community or fellow Chamber members with a hot deal or member incentive and we couldn’t think of better way to kick off the campaign than by helping our members encourage the community to shop and buy local at their local business!  The Chamber has undergone substantial changes that now provide members a wealth of benefits and tools that help them not only succeed, but thrive!,” states Kevin Roberts, President, New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce

What do you need to do to participate?

Register your business for Buy Local Day at the Chamber or First South Bank.

Offer a discount or promotion to customers on Buy Local Day!

Chamber members may also register to attend a special October 28th Member Information Center training session that will teach members how to post either a hot deal or member incentive on the Chamber’s website.

The Chamber of Commerce is very attentive to the attraction of new business and promotion of its members in the local area.  The New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce provides its members the best platform to successfully promote and engage with their customers and now with the new Member Information Center, members can post hot deals and member-to-member incentives absolutely free of charge in the interest of promoting their business.
