The Hampton Roads Chamber is pleased to release its 2010 Membership Directory in a new online flip book format. Produced by Showcase Publishing, a full-service publisher of print and online directories for chambers of commerce and business associations and hosted online by Nxtbook Media, LLC, the new format transforms the way people use the Chamber’s Membership Directory.
Moving from the printed format to the online flip book format gives us the opportunity to increase viewership from approximately 4,000 people to potentially more than 40,000!
Whether you want to print the book in its entirety or one page at a time, it’s all at your fingertips. Go “green” by printing only what you need! Access the directory at home, at work, or on your laptop, and you have the directory when you want it, where you need it!
There are some key benefits to providing a professionally produced Membership Directory:
1) It Promotes Your Business –A directory is an excellent way to increase the visibility of our members.
2) It Provides an Easy Format to do business with Chamber members – A well-organized directory makes it simple for Chamber members to do business with one another. Member listings are grouped alphabetically and by specialty. Also, directories are often created with indexes and tabs to assist in locating the information. New this year, you will find a M2M symbol next to all members offering discounts to Chamber members. Use the discounts whenever possible, and your membership can pay for itself!
3) It Enhances the Value of Membership – When a member is included in a professionally-produced directory, it is a tangible reminder of the importance of their membership in the organization by providing year-round information.
Along with the flip book, a printable directory update (February-October 2010) is intended to serve as a companion piece to the flip book and is a great tool to keep your directory current!
The Chamber thanks the following member firms that sponsored this Membership Directory and made its production possible: Optima Health Plans of Sentara Healthcare, Sheraton Norfolk Waterside, Bon Secours Health Center at Harbour View, Norfolk Southern Corporation, Charter Business, Old Point National Bank, Tidewater Community College, Priority Auto Group, and Superior Executive Transportation.
