Chamber Benefits

Chamber Benefits Column 1

Membership Directory
Every year, this publication is distributed exclusively to more than 700 leading business people in the Newport area. 

Members are listed providing high visibility to potential customers through both alphabetical and classified listings. 

Since Chamber members are encouraged to do business with other Chamber members, the Membership Directory is a valuable tool to the Greater Newport Chamber community.


Business Mailing Opportunities
As a Chamber member, you are entitled at any time to receive a printout of the current membership at no charge. If you would prefer a set of membership mailing labels, the Chamber Center is happy to provide those for only $25. Naturally, we trust that the labels will be used for legitimate marketing purposes. For your protection, it is the Chamber's policy not to distribute the membership database electronically at any time for any purpose.


Internet Exposure
The Chamber has a website that includes the business directory of our members, giving them free worldwide exposure. Any member who already has their own home page can also have it hyperlinked to their Chamber listing for free.


Map / Pocket Guide
Each year the Chamber publishes the city map and a highly circulated brochure that includes information on dining, lodging, entertainment and other services. More than 7,000 maps and 125,000 guides are distributed annually from the Chamber Center and throughout Newport businesses and visitor centers in the Pacific Northwest.


Newsletter
Each month the Chamber newsletter, "Communique", is mailed to over 800 leading businesses in Newport and surrounding areas. Reading the Communique keeps you informed of many activities made possible through your membership. New members are briefly profiled and all members may submit newsworthy features providing free advertising exposure.


Registered Trademark Advertising Slogan
The Dungeness Crab Capital of the World® advertising slogan can be used in advertising and promotion by Newport Chamber members. If you are interested in learning how to obtain permission to use the slogan, please contact the Chamber.

Direct Mail Advertisements
Chamber members can save significantly in cost, time and labor by including their full page flyer in the Chamber's monthly newsletter which is direct mailed to over 700 leading Newport and surrounding area businesses. The total charge to insert your supplied flyer is $100.00 which includes handling and postage.


Information Display
Members may display their brochures in the Chamber's Visitor Center at no charge. The Chamber will also mail your brochure to people requesting your specific kind of business through our daily mailings.


Business Referrals
Through our customer referral service, the Chamber refers hundreds of potential customers to Chamber members each month. This is a free benefit of membership. You will be one of those businesses we refer!


Kiosk Rental
24-hour information center located on the SW corner at the Chamber Center. Members may "rent" kiosk brochure space.


Community Profile
This profile is distributed to potential residents and/or businesses who are interested in relocating or requesting information about our community. It is also used for promotion of our community at economic development trade shows and conferences. A line listing in the business resource guide section is free to all members with display advertising space available also.


Committees
Members may participate in any of our active, dynamic committees, covering a wide range of interests including: Banquet & Balloon Auction, Seafood & Wine Festival, Hospitality Training and Ambassadors. Other committees and task forces meet as needed.


Additional Information
Chamber members have access to demographic information, maps, directories, and brochures from throughout the Pacific Northwest. These include: relocation inquiry list, real estate information, directory of County services, area maps, Newport area demographics, and information on schools, clubs and organizations.
