New website 1.0

This marks the initial launch of our new website for 2019. If I referred you to the website, please provide some feedback on what you like and do not like. If you just happened along our website, please provide feedback as well. This website was developed as a benefit to not only our members, but to our residents and anyone wanting to find out more about our great community.

There are a few really exciting features this website provides. My favorite is the event calendar. The event calendar will list all the events happening with Akron/Newstead (if the responsible business/organization posts it)which we hope will make it a go to calendar for our community. Chamber Events, Library Events, School Events, Merchant Events, Rotary Events, Lion’s Club, and more will be able to post their events.

A second feature is our new online (searchable} directory. With this directory you can find information about a business, where they are located (their location is shown on a map), current deals they are offering, and more.

The third feature is the ability to purchase tickets, register for events, and sign up for classes online. We are hoping this website will make life a little easier for our residents as well as our businesses.

The last feature which is unique is that our website will have a members only area (sorry no jackets). This is where members can find member only related content and discounts offered by co-members.

Thanks again for taking a look and providing feedback. If you aren’t a member of the Chamber, what are you waiting for?
