It’s 2022! Like all of you we are writing our own success story for the new year. The chamber is focusing on you and how we can best support your business. We have lined up several educational oportunities, networking events and community celebrations. I know things look grim with the round of Covid but we are going to focus on the things we can control.
Next week we have OCVA and Travel Oregon presenting at the Monthly luncheon in Lincoln City. This is a great opportunity for you to see how our partners are helping us promote Depoe Bay and the Oregon Coast. Then, on Thursday, January 27th we are partnering with Lincoln City Chamber and SBDC to present a Workshop for Women. This program will be available on zoom, details below. Rounding off the next 30 days is Ales and Sales with the SBDC at The Horn on Thursday, February 17th from 6pm to 8pm. We will share our marketing success and fails and mastermind new ways to capture attention. Keep February 28th and March 1st available if you would like to take advantage of a 2 day workshop with Social Media, Canva and Google My business workshops. We will have more details and registration sign up in the next newsletter.
I know everyone is anxiously awaiting decisions on Crab Feed & Wooden Boat Show and The Salmon Bake. we have been asking officials and watching others closely. The Newport Chamber was moving forward with the Seafood & Wine Festival until yesterday when they had to officially cancel the event due to suggestions from State and County Health. I am leary of the Crab Feed happening but I am optimistic we will have a Salmon Bake. However, we are not making an official decisions yet. Look for those announcements soon.
The number one question I am always asking business is how can I help you. We are constantly looking for new resources, grants, and programs to support you but we want to know, What is your biggest need? Email or call me anytime and let’s see how your chamber can help you!
