Message from the Executive Director
Dear Members and Future Members:
As the Chamber begins its work for the year ahead, I would like to first take time to thank our current members for being a valued part of the Old Orchard Beach Chamber of Commerce. Individually, your businesses each play an important role in the success of our community, and together, your businesses are the reason we continue to be known as “Maine’s Premier Family Beach Resort”. For those considering membership, I encourage you to speak with one of our 200 members to see why a Chamber membership would be of such great benefit to your business. Through your conversations with members, you will quickly understand the support, promotion, and advocacy we continue to provide for our entire Chamber community…
On another note, there are exciting things happening here at the Chamber. First and foremost, you will see that the Old Orchard Beach Chamber of Commerce is sporting a brand new beautiful and functional website! We’ve worked diligently to create a website with relevance, exceptional functionality, and inclusivity. Simply stated, our Chamber’s website is useful for visitors and members alike. We have built a website that will enhance our marketing efforts and take us into the future by increasing customer engagement and social media connectivity. Watch closely and join us in the coming months as we continue to grow our marketing efforts for both members and our community.
Among some of the newest website marketing opportunities providing high visibility for members and our area are: banner advertising, enhanced business listings, online Vacation Planner, lodging and camping availability board, as well as a prominent area events calendar. Please take time to peruse these features and expect to hear from us soon with detailed information about how your business can be highlighted in one or more of these useful sections of the Chamber’s website.
In addition to our latest website development, we have also been working creatively behind the scenes to bring a fresh look to the Chamber through a new and exciting logo. We wanted the elements of the logo to speak to the work that the Chamber does for local businesses, yet also incorporate the fun aspects of Old Orchard that have brought tourist here for generations. The votes are in and we feel as though our choice embodies the true Old Orchard Beach brand and experience!
On a final note, we want you to know that the Old Orchard Beach Chamber is greatly looking forward to working with you in the coming year. Please reach out to us with any questions or feedback you have about the exciting new changes we’re implementing. We would love to hear from you!
Kim Verreault – Executive Director
