Moon Shadow Etchers If you have ever been to Las Vegas and walked in to the Cosmopolitan you may have seen their work and not known it.

We’ve got a BRAND NEW, HIGH-VALUE opportunity for our members…

The All-New SACC Marketing “Hot Seat”

In our all-new monthly marketing hotseat program, one Chamber member a month will receive an in-depth, private marketing consultation from the Chamber’s pro marketing team (4 experts in the areas of copywriting, web and graphic design, print and promotions, and social media).

In an action-packed 30-minute session, we’ll review and break down what you’re currently doing, what your goals are, where your biggest struggles are, and then offer you specific suggestions on actions you can take to increase your sales and profits.

Your Hot Seat will be recorded so that you can most benefit from the tips, tools, strategies, and techniques we share.  And other members will be invited to view the session and add their suggestions and comments as well. (Plus, other members learn a ton about their business while watching you talk about yours!)

The Marketing Hot Seat is an extremely powerful business growth tool. And it’s is all about YOU—customized to your particular business, your particular needs and challenges. No sales or pitches involved. You won’t be getting theory or out-there ideas…Your feedback comes from the owners of real-world businesses who’ve navigated real-world business challenges & opportunities.

So, you’re probably wondering, “This is a lot…  what the heck is this session going to cost me?”
Good news. The Marketing Hot Seat is a new member benefit for Sandy Area Chamber members. You don’t pay a penny for these marketing and business tools, strategies and advice (over the cost of your annual membership fee, that is).
If you’d like to apply for your Marketing Hot Seat… just call Karey or reply to this email.

What It Means For You, Your Employees & Your Business

You know about the sweeping changes happening this fall on the health insurance landscape. If you’re like most business owners, you’ve probably tried to read through the fine print to see how these changes will impact you and your employees. And you probably aren’t any clearer or better informed.

This is a NOT-TO-MISS presentation. Be prepared for what’s coming down the road. Get your questions answered. Know your options!

Whether you’re in a small or large business, you’re going to need to make some decisions… soon! So on October 9th, we’re bringing in the experts from Northwestern Mutual in Portland to break it all down.

Matthew Woodburn has been in the insurance industry since 2006. Prior to working  in the insurance field, Matthew worked as Director of Operations for a medical records and HIPAA compliance company that supported many insurance partners. In 2003, he was recruited to work as an Employee Benefits Specialist for Strategic Employee  Benefits Services.

Verena Lewandowski, CLU, has 31 years of experience in the Insurance Industry. She joined Northwestern Mutual in 1983 and specializes in the areas of disability, life, long term care, and medical Insurance.

Matthew and Verena will be going over the requirements for both large and small groups, and explaining the “exchange.” There will be plenty of time at the end for Q&A, so please bring your burning questions.
