Our very own co-founder Mike Frey assumed the 2013 Presidency today of the Eagle Point & the Upper Rogue Chamber of Commerce. During the next year, Mike will be focusing on growing the chamber, focusing the community on the local businesses that make up the infrastructure of the Upper Rogue community, and encouraging everyone to support local. Below is Mike’s initial message to the Chamber membership.
Most local chambers have hotel tax dollars to draw upon to help support their efforts. For our Chamber that is not the case, which means that we need to be a little more grass roots and have people and businesses more involved.
How can you help? Easy! Invest in the chamber and support the website by advertising on it, investment is just $200 a year. Sponsor a chamber event such as the Vintage Faire. Play a more active and vocal role in the chamber. Be a lunch sponsor, we have lunch sponsors for May-October and December but are looking for March and April.
Remember the difference between good and great is up to us so let’s BE GREAT!
Shop local, eat local, spend local, enjoy local…
Congratulations Mike we’re glad to share you with the Eagle Point & the Upper Rogue Chamber of Commerce this year!
