June 2017 Membership Lunch Meeting

August Chamber Membership Meeting is Monday, August 28th at Noon

The Floyd County Chamber of Commerce is hosting its August chamber membership lunch meeting on Monday, August 28th, at noon in the Skyline Bank (Bank of Floyd) Community Room, (June meeting pictured above.)  The meeting will include introduction of new chamber members and networking, and discussion about the upcoming October 26th Spooktacular Gala and seek feedback about a printed business directory for Floyd County.  Grilled hamburger and hot dog meals will be served.  This meeting is open to the Floyd business community.  Please RSVP to the Chamber office at 745-4407 or info@floydchamber.org, in advance, if interested in attending so we know how much to grill!

The Chamber’s 2017 meeting schedule alternates each month between evening board meetings and membership-oriented lunchtime meetings, typically on the fourth Monday of each month.  The Chamber board increased the frequency of the lunchtime meeting to allow members whose schedules do not permit them to attend evening meetings the opportunity to participate over lunch.  The board business items are abbreviated at lunchtime meetings to include more time for presenting topics of general interest to the membership and for membership discussion.
 
The Skyline Bank Community Room is located at 203 Oxford Street in Floyd.  Guests can park in the courthouse parking lot at the corner of Rt8/Locust St. and Oxford Street.  The Community Room is in the brick building just off the parking lot opposite the Rt. 8 side of the parking lot.  A concrete ramp leads to the front door of the Community Room, accessed from the parking lot.

New 2017 Floyd Visitor Guides Being Distributed

The new 2017 Floyd Visitor Guide is being distributed now.  Distribution started at the Floyd info booth at FloydFest last month with the first 1,000 guides printed and we have shipped 14,000 guides to almost 100 Certified Visitor Information Centers throughout the state.  This shipment was supplemented by another shipment of 10,000 for paid placement in six official Virginia Welcome Centers at key interstate locations where visitors cross state lines into Virginia. 

The initial push to get new guides out to over 400 locations takes about a month.  The guides are also mailed to leads generated by paid advertisements placed by the Floyd Tourism Office, and distributed to attendees at local festivals in Floyd County such as Floyd Fest and Chantilly Farm’s Bluegrass Festival and Yoga Jam.  Local artisans are also handing them out at craft shows in and out of state. Our focus has been to get them in places where it will benefit businesses that advertised in the guide, promote Floyd County as a visitor destination, and avoid wastage.
 
Visitor Guides can be requested by contacting the Visitor Information Center/Chamber office at 745-4407 or Info@FloydChamber.org.  The Visitor Information Center and chamber office is located at 109 East Main Street, next door to Blue Ridge Café, and is open seven days a week. 

The Floyd County Visitor Information Center is co-managed by your chamber and Floyd Tourism Office.

Not Getting Chamber Newsletters?

The most common reason for not seeing chamber newsletters in your email inbox is because they are being filtered as spam/junk by your email server or your own email settings.  Your regular spam settings may be too stringent or you may have inadvertently marked a previous newsletter as spam/junk.  Check your spam or junk email folder to see if the newsletters are landing there.  Try copying the following email address and pasting it to your email address book as a new contact:  no-reply@vrmailer3.com     

Another reason that you may not be seeing the newsletter is that if you are using Gmail, it may be automatically filtered into your promotional items folder.  If you do find it there, you can right click on the email and drag into your regular inbox and confirm that you want future chamber newsletters to land there.

The server that hosts your website and email address may also be blocking the chamber newsletter as part of a global policy.  In this case, it is best to contact your server's technical support and ask that the email address that sends the newsletter, no-reply@vrmailer3.com, be allowed to reach your inbox.

Please contact info@FloydChamber.org if you need further assistance.


Our mission is to support regional businesses with networking opportunities, informative and educational resources, and to serve as an advocate for our members and community.
