Marcy Maretti, Marketing & Communications Manager

The Chamber is hard at work on features and channels to best serve and communicate with our community and our members! Check out some of the exciting things I’ve been working on for you and feel free to contact me directly with your feedback.

SantaMaria.com

If you’ve searched for a local business, event or resource lately, chances are you’ve seen our revamped website. We have recently renovated our website: www.santamaria.com

Our goal with this new website is to provide our visitors with a more user-friendly experience. All of the content has been restructured so that information is easier to find, navigate and read. Members can easily find access to login to their account at the top of each page. Social media icons are also there for easy access to interact with us. Individual pages incorporate social media functionality so that you may share content easily with others.

Another new, exciting feature is that we’ve now integrated online training courses. We have partnered with Coggno to offer discounted courses on an assortment of topics from software to management. You can find these courses under Business Services in the Chamber section of the site.

This new version of our site is now mobile responsive. This means, the website will automatically adapt based on the size of the screen it is viewed on, changing the fit and layout to be easily readable on desktops, laptops and mobile phones.

I hope you find the new website easy to navigate and pleasing to browse. We are still updating some features and content, but I welcome your questions, comments and suggestions on the new site.

SantaMariaChamberNews.com eDigest

I am very excited to announce this new offering as well. Since we have converted our newsletter fully to digital, there was not an efficient way to push updates to our members – until now. We have developed a periodical that will feed recent posts right to your inbox twice a week. This not only means that you will always stay up to date on all of the Chamber and Member News, but also that anything a member submits will also be blasted out seamlessly to the rest of the membership. A true win-win!

Check your inbox for regular editions of the Santa Maria Chamber News.com Digest all current members are already on this list and should be receiving these emails already! If you’re not currently on the list and would like to receive it, you may opt-in on our facebook page (fb.com/SMVCC) or by emailing us at chambernews@santamaria.com.  Soon we will also be adding a member-to-member eblast as well so stay tuned for that!

MemberPlus App

Yet another exciting member feature we are proud to announce is the new MemberPlus App. Now members can stay connected with the Chamber on the go with this app. The app allows you to:

  • Update your member profile information and photo
