How to Not Miss Out on Our E-Blasts

How to Not Miss Out on Our E-Blasts

Hello #ChamberFamily!

You may have noticed that our e-Blasts have gotten a “make over” – better design, images and content! We are now using Mailchimp to send out the e-Blasts and the feedback has been great! However, to ensure that you are receiving the e-Blasts properly, especially the very important Thursday’s Membership Update, we’ve created this easy step-by-step guide you can follow and adjust your email settings! If your email service provider isn’t listed here, please let us know so we can help you out!

In addition to the e-Blasts guide, we’ve created an easy step-by-step for Facebook and Instagram – make sure you update your settings to not miss out on our updates!
