We're adding to our communications options in order to keep members and the community better informed. A new website will showcase members, local news and events as well as providing a members area for information about projects and benefits. A new Facebook group and Twitter will reach out to the community and an online events calendar that can be synchronised with mobile and PC calendars will make sure you are up to date with chamber and town events...
The web site is feature complete. Details of all members is required to complete the members directory. The constitution is in draft pending a review. Minutes for the latest meetings should be uploaded to the minutes section. We need a credit for Julian Preston who has kindly donated some of his facebook photos.
The facebook group is complete but we need to get members to sign up and start posting content. It would be great to discuss ongoing projects. The twitter feed is set up and just needs items of interest to the local business community posted. We have a Google account to handle email, our events calendar and document storage for Chamber documents and artwork. We have a new domain ashburtonchamber.org that is used for the web site and our new email addresses.
The site has a nice facility for managing site members that provides a nice mailing facility which would be a great tool for emailing agendas prior to meetings or event reminders.
We now just need to make some minor changes to the site, review and approve before we publicise it all.
