Marketing Your Monroe Business
The Monroe Chamber offers its members a variety of ways to gain visibility through targeted and effective communications via the Chamber website, social media and digital e-blasts to the business community.
Ribbon Cuttings for New Businesses (and Re-Openings!)
The Monroe Chamber prides itself on planning, staging and executing successful Ribbon Cutting ceremonies for new businesses that join the Chamber. We collaborate with Town officials and the Monroe Economic Development Commission and promote these Grand Opening events through social media and local media outlets, complete with photographs.
Open House Receptions
