"Community Marketing on a Budget" will be the theme of our next member workshop scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 6 at 1:30 PM at the Collinsville Community Center.
The workshop will be led by Chamber Public Relations Director Austin Lewter. Lewter is the Publisher of the Whitesboro News-Record and North Texas Best Times magazine. His career includes publishing stops all over Northeast Texas.
Lewter sits on the the Board of Directors of the North and East Texas Press Association and is the President of the Whitesboro Rotary Club. He holds a degree in Communications from Southeastern Oklahoma State University where he has mentored graduating seniors. Lewter has also worked closely with the Texas Center for Community Journalism on various areas of community marketing.
"Marketing is however your brand is reaching the public," Lewter said. "In today's age of technology there are numerous ways to do that. Understanding the most effective return is key and doing so on a budget is imperative."
The workshop will kick-off at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 6 and will last until 3 p.m. Refreshments will be served and admission is free for Chamber members.
Non-chamber members are welcome to attend for $25. For more information or to RSVP, contact Chamber President Kelly Smith at 903.821.0491.
City Park Improvements
The Board of Directors has issued the following statement concerning the Park Expansion:
The Chamber is supportive of the idea of park expansion. We don’t, however, have a position on the financing of the project. There are a lot of funding options available, and we hope that with time, a workable combination can be found.
We are familiar with the challenges that this project faces, having been in existence for only three years ourselves. It takes a lot of hard work to become established enough to prove that your idea is worth the investment of time and money, and will have the outcome desired.
While we are not in a position to offer financial support, we would be more than happy to help with whatever efforts we can to promote any improvements in our community.
