The Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the launch of its new website. The website has gotten a significant makeover bringing elements of modern day design and functionality. It is the first overhaul of the Chamber website in over five years. While that may not seem that long ago, it’s ages in the tech world and needed a refresh.
“We are thrilled to launch this new site and provide added value to our members,” said Mark Smiley, President of the Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce. “We feel we have positioned ourselves as a chamber that has the latest technology and a stellar user experience for all who visit the site.”
The goal of the new website is to inform the community of the Chamber’s vision and the part it plays within the Greater Glendale community. In addition, it also plans events to help benefit the business community in Glendale, such as networking, breakfast series, presentations on business building, social media, and more. The new website will continue to highlight Chamber members, inform the community of large and small-scale events, and be a hub of community resources.
The Greater Glendale Chamber teamed up with longtime Chamber member John Brandenburg of Acme Logo to build the new website. In addition, Chamber Ambassador Laura Lieff helped with the content for the new site. Working closely with the task force appointed by the Board of Directors, Lieff and Chamber administrative assistant Sherri Liebhauser worked to bring the vision of the task force to fruition.
This new and improved Chamber website features seven navigation bars at the top which include the business directory and a bar for members to manage their own account. The site also features feature stories on Chamber members, an events calendar, a mechanism whereby to join the Chamber, and information on the Chamber Board of Directors and Ambassadors.
A key feature is the ability to load events directly to your calendar using the tool at the bottom of the calendar view. It is also optimized for mobile device use which research shows, 40% of users are visiting the website using their hand-held devices.
As the Chamber wraps up a successful 2018, it is prepared to embark on 2019 where it will celebrate its 20-year anniversary. With a new website, it is ready to offer its members a more updated and upgraded online experience.
The website’s address remains unchanged: www.ggchamber .com.
