Tuesday, March 19, 2019City of Lafayette

The Future of our Downtown Community Workshop

In February, the Lafayette City Council approved three strategic goals and five strategic objectives for 2019. One of the strategic objectives is to develop a strategy to expand City support of local businesses and commerce & to increase the vibrancy of downtown Lafayette. Mayor Burks and Councilmember Candell are assigned to work on this objective and their goal is to submit an action plan to the full City Council by the end of April. The action plan or road map will assist the Council in establishing the City’s work plans for the coming year(s).

 

A public meeting on March 19 will focus on receiving input from property owners, business owners and operators. This presents a welcome opportunity to share your thoughts on how the city can help you and your business to stay relevant in this changing retail climate. We invite you to join us in this discussion.

Citizen of the Year Dinner Honoring Don Tatzin

Citizen of the Year Dinner Honoring Don Tatzin

Congratulations to Don Tatzin, the 2019 Citizen of the Year! A dinner is his honor will be held on March 22. Non-host bar will be available 6pm-7pm, dinner will start promptly at 7pm. This is a ticketed event and registration is now closed.

 

About Don: Change is inevitable! But this is the song that remained the same for over 30 years. Don Tatzin, the MIT Graduate, CEO and consultant dipped his toes in serving his community. Starting with the Lafayette Parks and Recreation Commissions, onto the Planning Commission and then the City Council. Our 7 time Mayor has often been the “voice of reason” working through some difficult situations for Lafayette. More importantly, he listened to everyone with an open mind and respect. There is a list a mile long that makes Don the perfect candidate for Citizen of the Year. He oversaw so many improvements to Lafayette including the Lafayette Library and Learning Center. Don can be proud of the city’s fiscal responsibility along with the knowledge that the people that are lucky enough to live in Lafayette, Love Lafayette. And what’s not to love.

 

Read a great article about Don here!

 

Thank you to our program sponsor, MCE!

The Digital Ambassador "Lunch and Learn" Online Series

The Digital Ambassador "Lunch and Learn" Online Series

Join us from your home or office on your desktop or phone for the this zoom.us online session. This month we will explore two ways that small businesses can get the most ROI out of their Chamber Membership: 1) The Hot New Online Meeting Platform zoom.us - where we will be meeting to discuss 2) Facebook for Business with Facebook Small Business Expert Michael Pasha of Ocean View Digital. Invite your social media staff for this interactive online discussion!

 

REGISTER HERE

 

Facebook is the place where people catch up with friends online, find their news and entertainment and where smart business owners can find all the customers they need with the click of a button. However, navigating the platform, knowing what buttons to click and creating ads that actually bring customers in your doors with money in hand instead of frustrating you and draining your wallet can be challenging.

 

In this segment, Michael Pasha founder and creative director at Oceanview Digital will be joining us to discuss why the Facebook platform is your best option to grow your business. How to create ads that actually get customers to spend money with you and what so many businesses are doing wrong, which has caused them to have unsuccessful ad campaigns and give up on the endless rewards that an effective ad can bring.

 

Typical Questions About Facebook for Business When should you focus on social media posting and SEO instead of paid advertising? Why are Facebook ads better than other forms of advertising? What do business owners need to think about before putting together a Facebook ads campaign? What makes a successful ad campaign? What do you do when a client’s ad campaign isn’t working as expected? When should someone hire an ad agency vs to learn how to run ads themselves?

Last Month Lafayette Chamber Executive Director Jay Lifson and Mike Hayes of Big Ideas Express discussed The Art of In-Person Networking and How to Connect with Online Networking to Create Rapid Growth Referral Partnerships. Zoom Recording available online for your convenience.
