Following the AGM and the election of the executive, there were a number of people who were not present and who have expressed an interest in joining the committee. As such, the meeting on the 14th March at the recently re-opened Bush pub, will begin at 6pm with a 'Special General Meeting/AGM' to allow additional executive members to be elected onto the committee.
Once that formal part is completed, we will consider a motion to allocate chamber funds to a marketing campaign that the working group/marketing sub-committee has agreed.
This includes a range of articles in Cumbria Life, production of c5000 booklets/town guides, a new customer facing website, competitions to grow our own database, a business launch and email marketing campaigns throughout the year. We have exciting plans based on what we have agreed on last year and some great opportunities to support the town. Clearly none of the plans can replace your own marketing but enhance it and, through current negotiations, there may be even more scope to expand this during the year.
We are and will contiue seeking additional support, funds and sponsorship to allow the scheme to grow. Please do come along to the meeting to hear more of the ideas.
