That is the 1st step in learning the platform and maximizing your Chamber Benefits!

Chamber Nation Changes TCS page to Marketing Landing Page

Marketing Landing Page is the term used for premium services received through your Quad Area Chamber Membership.    

Members at the time of implementation of Chamber Nation received this set up service free. 

Third quarter of 2019 the Chamber implemented a one time set up fee of $30 for premium services, which begins with this Marketing Landing Page. 

In the past, they would contact you when your page was complete.    Participate & follow up was low, so they now notify our Chamber Office and we pass the notice on to you after our preview. 

If it doesn't appear the way you would like, let us know.   Much of the content you are able to change on your own.   

Following this process will give you much more exposure and increase your Rate of Return on Chamber Membership. 

Additional staff of your business may have their personal premium services for a one time cost of $30 per Marketing Landing Page. 

As always, let us know your questions.

2020 Levy Pared Down from Preliminary Amount

The Anoka County Board of Commissioners approved a property tax levy increase of 3.97 percent during the board’s meeting Dec 6. 
            In September, the board adopted a preliminary budget that met the county’s goals and resulted in a 4.97 percent levy increase.  At that time, commissioners directed county management to continue looking for more opportunities to reduce the levy.  Staff found creative solutions to lower the levy, and this led to a final amount that is an entire percentage point lower than the preliminary levy.
            Budget priorities for 2020 include public safety, cyber security, and preserving and maintaining the current level of county services.  The levy pays for about a third of the county’s operational costs.  The rest of the county’s budget comes from other sources, such as fees and state and federal grants.
            “This final levy is the result of hard work and ingenuity,” said Scott Schulte, chair, Anoka County Board of Commissioners.  “Staff took what was already a modest preliminary levy and reworked it to lower the amount, which is a testament to their expertise and dedication to serving our taxpayers in a respectful, innovative and fiscally responsible manner.”
