Chamber of Commerce Arts and Culture Committee gains focus

An idea the committee earlier embraced was opening the chamber’s online calendar of events to all community organizations as a central community-planning calendar. In conjunction, the committee hosted a calendar and marketing workshop the evening of Oct. 15 with an instructional component featuring chamber members’ marketing tips and advice.

A community’s cultural life is a factor in encouraging a business to locate — or relocate — there, Schwartz said. It’s also a factor when families decide where they wish to move to raise their children. It’s so important, in fact, that the Crestview Area Chamber of Commerce formed the Arts and Culture Committee this year to be a liaison between the business and cultural communities.

“This is a new committee, with the opportunity to make substantial and innovative contributions to the chamber, to area arts and to the community,” Schwartz said.
