2011 Sponsorship Opportunities
with the Golden Chamber of Commerce
“IT WORKS IF YOU LET IT WORK”
The Golden Chamber of Commerce offers many opportunities throughout the year for members to promote their business and participate in community events. One such opportunity involves sponsoring an event. Sponsoring an event allows a member to not only benefit from outside advertising, but in many cases, event sponsors can increase their visibility by participating in the event.
