Membership Directory Advertising
The Membership Directory is a prestigious publication that gives you the opportunity to market your company’s products and services directly to all Chamber members. Every Chamber member received a copy of the directory to use as a primary marketing tool. Our Chamber staff uses the directory extensively to promote Chamber members to the hundreds of telephone calls and written inquires received each year. The publication is on the Chamber’s website which a number of people visit each day when looking to travel or do business in our area. Directory advertising is done annually and Chamber Members will be notified with regards to advertising opportunities throughout the year. Members are listed in our annual publication in three ways: Categorized business listings, Alphabetical listings, and Contact Representative listings. The directory helps find Chamber members to satisfy product and service needs. 8,000 Directories are published and distributed, not only to the Gaithersburg-Germantown area, but also to the requests for relocation packages sent throughout the country.
