Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce | January 2019

Ringing in the New Year

As we begin this new year, it is easy to get caught up in resolutions for a healthier lifestyle. Here at the Chamber of Commerce, our goal is to phase out ineffective practices by implementing and focusing on relevant services to our Chamber Businesses.

This means evaluating how we've always done things, developing new opportunities, and choosing to pursue what benefits our businesses, engages our community, and ultimately helps your business thrive.

We're on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter so we encourage you to like and follow us. If you haven't already, we hope you will create social media accounts and tag us so we can further promote you. Tag us as a co-host when you create your facebook events to share with our many followers.

I join Tim Radford at WKRK for their weekly #wkrkWednesday facebook live. Sherry shares he events of our members on our weekly spot on WJRB 95.1 and WJUL 97.7, as well as a monthly spot on WCNG. We encourage you to post all of your events to our online calendar because this is what we share at each radio station. (click here to "submit new event")

We're working to revamp our online presence with a new and improved website rolling out this Spring. We will have the same domain, but we're adding a blog to present a far more user-friendly resource for our businesses, community, and tourists.

We know that our community of almost 400 businesses have a lot to share with us. Please be sure to share what you have going on at your business. Effective January 8th, my new email address for marketing and public relations is so please, help me help you by keeping me in the know!

Cheers to an amazing 2019!

Welcome Ronda Birtha

We are delighted to introduce the Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce's new Information Specialist and Administrative Assistant, Ronda Birtha.

Probably the easiest and shortest description of Ronda Birtha is she’s simply a right-brained artist with strong left-brained tendencies. After 10 years as a systems engineer and curriculum developer with Canon USA, Ronda returned to her creative foundation and has since supported herself as a photographer, instructor, and consultant. Because the left-brain keeps calling (as well as clients who knew she was “good at stuff and things”) she launched All I Want to Do Is, a web strategy, media producing, technical consulting firm that prides itself on "giving simple answers and getting the tech outta here." Hit her up. She'll be the smiling face you see in our Welcome Center Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

Goodbye and Good Luck to Megan

We hope you will all join us in wishing Megan Palmer the best of luck as she pursues a new and exciting path. Megan will be finishing the month of January here at the Chamber of Commerce, after which she will be traveling to sunny Florida.

We want to thank Megan for all of her work to promote each business member. She has been a joy to work with and will certainly be missed. Our loss is Disney's gain and we wish her all the best as she begins her internship in the Disney College Program. Safe travels and we look forward to your visits back to Cherokee County!
