The Chamber offers its members a multitude of opportunities to gain community recognition, publicity and marketing exposure for their products and services to other Chamber members, the business community at large, local residents and those who visit. By integrating these tactics into an overall marketing strategy, Members can effectively cultivate vital relationships to reach important markets and grow their business.

Your business listing in the Chamber's Membership Directory

The Chamber website is a one-stop online portal that provides information about the Chamber’s membership and events, and Yates County & the Finger Lakes. Featuring a searchable Member database with access by category or company name, the Chamber website represents a valuable promotional marketing tool and information resource for members. Hits and searches within the Chamber website can translate to click-throughs to your own websites, increased sales inquiries, and greater exposure. Each member receives a listing and can be linked to their website.

Media & Public Relations

If you have exciting news, updates, or just looking to gain more exposure for your business to attract more customers, the Chamber will help connect you with local, regional, and state media.

Need help writing a press release or distributing your news? Contact Chelsea Race, Director of Marketing, for more information.

We also work closely with our regional and state partnerships with I LOVE NY, Finger Lakes Regional Tourism Council, and Finger Lakes Wine Country. We are actively pitching stories with PR professionals and sharing new or existing information about Yates County to help promote the area and attract new visitors.

Community Events Calendar

Our free community calendar is a dynamic and easy to use tool to promote your events to a wide audience. It’s one of the top visited pages on our website, and we give you increased exposure to promote your upcoming events, that we know takes a lot of time and effort for you to plan and host.

Our events calendar software picks up local events in Yates County and Chamber Member businesses through the internet and social media, saving you time by not having to post your events to as many platforms and public calendars. Events can also be added manually from the webpage.

We have a dedicated team member that reviews and approves events multiple days a week. Check out our partner guide on our events calendar to ensure your events get added.


Grand Opening & Ribbon Cuttings

Are you planning a grand opening or celebrating a milestone? Do you want to showcase a new expansion or location? We can be there with the big scissors to cut the ribbon and help you commemorate your accomplishments! We’ll help with advertising and public relations to spread the word to members of the business community. We can also include the following:

  • Photo opportunity with professional high-resolution photos
  • Help you write and distribute a press release post event
  • Invite VIP members of the community

We ask that you book with us at least 3-4 weeks in advance. Ribbon cuttings and ground breaking can be scheduled Monday-Friday, between 8:30am and 4:30pm, unless specially arranged otherwise.

For information or to discuss a ribbon-cutting ceremony for your business, contact us today!
