Planning & Budgeting for 2020

Before you make your New Year’s resolutions, now is a great time to reflect on the past year’s successes and challenges, considering a simple plan for your 2020 spending.

Budgeting can be intimidating, but having a plan can not only assure that you are spending wisely, it can also save you time.  Rather than struggling over each decision on what to commit to advertising and sponsorship as the requests pour in, consider a review of the last year and note what you will support in 2020.  In many cases, you can work with vendors and organizations to plan how payments work best for you.

The Chamber would welcome the chance to meet and discuss how you would like to invest in your business through our many advertising and sponsorship opportunities. Many businesses chose to “pay as they go,” but others would like to make a single commitment to be billed once a year or in installments.

If you aren’t sure how your money would best support your goals while supporting your Chamber, let’s schedule a meeting.  Among advertising options will be the annual printed Membership Directory and printed materials for the Cranberry and Oil Heritage Festivals.  Sponsorship options include the Annual Dinner, FLEX, Leadership Venango, the Chamber Golf Outing, and festivals. 

Your support ensures that together we can continue these member offerings, while promoting your business or organization.
