There will be an informational meeting with the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce at the Wonder Lake Chamber of Commerce office on November 12, 2019 at 5:30pm. We encourage anyone interested in joining the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce to come at see the many benefits they have to offer our businesses.
The Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry has a great deal to offer that we were not able to provide our members due to budget and resource constraints. Membership fees are higher, but we believe the level of service, networking opportunities, sponsorship and marketing opportunities, overall visibility to new customers and other local businesses in the County is well worth that investment.
The Woodstock Chamber of Commerce & Industry has nearly 300 members and recently changed their name to Woodstock Area Chamber to better serve members in outlying areas and neighboring communities as part of their long term strategic plan for growth. Their dynamic and user friendly website allows members to update information easily and routinely plus submit news, press releases, job postings and events that automatically push out to their Chamber website and social media channels. If we stick together as a group and join the Woodstock Area Chamber, we will be able to add a Wonder Lake section to the Woodstock Area Community Guide book as well as a Wonder Lake Tab to the Woodstock Area Chamber website to insure our success and visibility.
Over 10,000 copies of the community guide are printed annually. Many are inserted into the newspaper to NW Herald subscribers in Woodstock and Wonder Lake. The remainder are given to advertising partner businesses, local hotels, area professional service providers, McHenry County CVB, restaurants and other tourist and residential venues like visitor centers, local library, recreation center, City Hall, etc. The information is also available online.
This opportunity, along with many others through the Woodstock Area Chamber of Commerce & Industry, is great exposure for our Wonder Lake businesses. By joining together and moving over as a group we don’t have to lose our identity as Wonder Lake. With this transition, if we commit to move ahead now, together, we will enjoy many benefits of being recognized as the Wonder Lake business community.
We hope to see you there! If you have questions you can contact Amie At firstname.lastname@example.org or 815-980-0735.
