New Program "Member Deals E-Blast" - August Deals - Deadline is August 29th
The Chamber initiated a new program called "Member Deals E-Blast". Each month, our members will have an opportunity to offer a "special discount/sale" to all members in the Chamber via E-Blast. These "deals" will have an expiration date at the end of the month and must be submitted at least one week before the first day of the month. Each month, we will send out a new e-blast with new deals for that month. Please keep your "Deals" short and sweet, so that our members can view them easily.
Our goal is to provide our members with another opportunity to give back to our members. Along with the deals, our members can continue to offer their ongoing discount offer via the Chamber's Member to Member Discount Program, which can always be found on-line at the Chamber's website, http://www.tallmadgechamber.com.
If you have any specials that you would like to share with others, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do our best to include them in the next Members Deals E-Blast, scheduled to go out on September 2nd. Please type Member Deals in the Subject line, so that Becky will be able to spot these right away
