2014 Business After Hours Dates Starting to Fill-up
In the ever-changing world of business, one thing never seems to change – the popularity of hosting Business After Hours. Not only are all dates for hosting After Hours filled for the remainder of 2012 but for all of 2013 and a few months in 2014. If you’re interested in hosting in 2014 (or beyond), contact Stacy Hoover at 943-8151 or email her.

Have You Received Your "Buy Here. Live Here." Newsletter?
First the Buy Here. Live Here. website and now the Buy Here. Live Here. online newsletter. If you haven’t received the newsletter it means that you haven’t yet signed a pledge card saying that you will attempt to buy at least 10% more of your products and services from local providers. By signing a pledge, you will be entered into monthly prize drawings. You can access a pledge card either by visiting The Chamber Office or by visiting the website at http://www.buyherelivehere.com/

Chamber Seeking Fall Intern
The Blair County Chamber of Commerce is seeking an intern for the Fall Semester. The intern should be majoring in Business Management, Marketing or Communications. The internship can be either for credit or personal enrichment. Interested students should contact Linda Stotler at 943-8151. 

Great Electric Rates Still Available from Chamber Energy Program
If your business is a member of the Blair County Chamber and you haven’t enrolled in a discount program for electricity, you’re already losing money. To remedy that situation, check out The Chamber’s commercial energy program through OnDemand Energy. The rates are great and the service is outstanding. Simply visit the website at http://www.ondemandenergy.com/ and see what you’ve been missing!

Does Your Business Qualify for a Ribbon Cutting?
Has your business recently re-located, renovated or changed its appearance in any way? Then call The Chamber at 943-8151 and ask for Linda Stotler to schedule a ribbon-cutting. The Chamber Ambassadors, along with Chamber staff and any available elected officials will come to your location, cut a ribbon and take a photo that will then appear in an upcoming issue of the Blair Business Mirror. And the best thing is, there’s no cost involved. Don’t miss-out on an opportunity to promote your business. Call today!
