Front Line Staff Calendar – An Important Resource for Event Planners

Gina Keough, Visitor and Convention Bureau Manager

A service the Visitor and Convention Bureau offers to all Chamber Members, is a twice-monthly emailed list of special events called the Front Line Staff Calendar.  The list is meant to be passed along to the Front Line Staff and Sales Departments of members of our hospitality industry, so that they can then share the information to visitors to our city and patrons of their business. This also has the added benefit of keeping visitors in our city longer and potentially inspire future visits as well.

This service has grown in popularity and it’s a great way to support local event planners by growing attendance at their event.  If you are interested in having this information sent to you, it goes out via email twice a month.  Please contact me at to add you to the list.

Also – if your company or organization is a member in good standing of our Chamber of Commerce, who is hosting an event – one of the best benefits you’ve got with us is the free promotion of your event. Please do post your events to our calendar so we (and the general public) know about it and can support you!  This helps not only in the planning of other events so they don’t coincide with yours, but also helps get the word out in a variety of ways.

Thanks very much for supporting tourism in all its forms in the Santa Maria Valley!   For more information, please contact me, Gina Keough, Visitor and Convention Bureau Manager, at (805) 925-2403, ext. 814 or
