Bishop Chamber of Commerce News & Updates
From the Executive Director…
Hello Chamber Members and Friends,
Thank you for taking a few minutes to read this e-newsletter. We hope you find the information helpful and that you’ll join us for some of the wonderful upcoming events.
Your chamber team has been quite busy lately. We just completed the fifth consumer sport/travel show since January. The Bart Hall Show at the Long Beach Convention Center was a huge success! Volunteers Gary and Pat Gunsolley distributed more than 5,200 brochures including new Bishop Visitor Guides, Treasure Maps, Fishing Guides and new Inyo County Fishing Maps.
The chamber team is also working on other upcoming projects including the General Trout Opener Media Reception, rescheduled Blake Jones Trout Derby and the US Travel Association IPW International Tourism Conference. Your membership and support makes all this and more possible – THANK YOU!
We have recently heard from many business members that hiring is a real challenge. We are pleased to be working with Eastern Sierra Small Business Resource Center and several other partners to organize the Eastern Sierra Employment Day next month. This will be an important project to help small businesses succeed in the current tight labor market.
There are several new opportunities for professional and personal development highlighted in this message. There are also several fun events coming up for both locals and visitors. This email highlights a few of them and there are even more online at www.bishopvisitor.com.
If your business or organization is planning an event, please let us know so we can add it to the web calendar. If you have a member-to-member deal or discount, please let us know and we’ll highlight it in our next e-news.
Have a wonderful day!
