I am a big supporter of shopping local. I always prefer to use local services, give local businesses my hard-earned-dollars, and support the local economy. I am also a big believer in getting involved in the community and making a difference from the inside-out.
I am on the Board of Directors for the Pelham Business Association; the one-and-only association in Pelham for local businesses. My portfolio for the past few months (since I joined) was the “Communications Director”, where I am heading up business-to-community communication and marketing.
A project that we are starting very soon is our “Did You Know” Campaign; a marketing campaign (through social media and the local newspapers) where we will de-bunk some of the myths that Pelham residents may have about local businesses, and also to encourage Pelham residents to shop local.
We had our Pelham Business Association Annual General Meeting two evenings ago, and I presented this campaign to the membership and there was a great amount of positive feedback on it. We are all looking forward to working together to help grow and educate.
Sarah Murrell, the editor for the Voice of Pelham was present at the AGM, and wrote a great story on the campaign and what it is going to entail. Check it out here.
I’ll be posting more about this project as we move forward with it. Check back soon for more details! ]]>
