News and Information
The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce strives to share relevant news with its members on a regular basis and employs several different communication vehicles to get the word out about its members, events and community initiatives.
The Chamber's twice monthly e-newsletter, What's Up Wednesday, is an important communications tool that highlights a recent news story or event recap, and includes updates on upcoming events and new members, as well as news and events submitted by members. Look for this publication to be delivered on the first and third Wednesdays each month, with few exceptions. Read recent editions here.
In addition, Chamber members receive a monthly Membership Update with a message from the President/CEO on recent happenings, special membership offers and a list of renewing members.
In today's fast-paced world, the Chamber often communicates with members and the community-at-large through its social media channels. The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is active on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and uses these tools to post information on upcoming events, new and renewing members, recognize sponsors and share news from its members.
Many of the Chamber's events have their own dedicated social media pages as well. You can "like" and "follow" Taste of Winter Park, Winter Park Sip & Stroll, and the Winter Park Autumn Art Festival to get exclusive updates on these specific events year-round.
The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce website, www.winterpark.org, is a tremendous resource for its members and the community. The site hosts information on annual events, upcoming speakers and programs and offers members easy event registration via PayPal. In addition, the site hosts information about Leadership Winter Park, the Park Avenue Merchants Association, member benefits, committee meetings and more!
In addition, the Park Avenue Merchants Association has created www.experienceparkavenue.com as a visitor-centric website specific to the downtown area. It showcases shopping, dining and cultural attractions for locals and tourists alike and includes a brief history of our community, directions and parking information and a merchant directory.
To spread the word about the organization and its events, the Chamber distributes press releases to local, regional and national publications, websites and blogs.
