As the Chamber prepares for 2014, communication comes to mind.  The Chamber website had over 17,000 visits between January 1 and August 31.  What a great way for folks to find out about those businesses who are members of the Chamber but also Raytown in general.  The Chamber prints over 400 newsletters each month and also sends out about 750 to 1,000 emails each week to its Chamber members.  Where else can you stay up to date on what is happening within your business community.  The Chamber also has a Facebook page and a Twitter feed.  Take the time to go out and like the Facebook page and follow the Chamber on Twitter.  Each year, the Chamber prints a Community Profile & Chamber Directory and hands them out to current membership, potential new members, new businesses, new residents and includes them in relocation packets.  It is a great marketing tool for Raytown.  It contains information about Raytown including history, Police, Fire, EMS, the Parks, the School District and even the County.  If you would like one of these publications, stop by the Chamber office and pick up one for your use.  Remember to share the communication you receive from the Chamber with your family, friends, colleagues and customers.  Questions, please do not hesitate to contact Vicki Turnbow by phone at 816-353-8500 or email
