What constitutes a free mention in our publication and what constitutes advertising?

                No non-member news/promotions will be made after January 1, 2013.  All community events and activities are welcome to be placed on the Chamber’s Community Calendar on the website and each Weekly eNews Update will have a link to this calendar.  Any information mentioned in any publication must be through a Franklin Chamber member about their respective member business.  Member news such as business anniversaries, promotions, business performance awards or “we moved” information will be included in publications free of charge.  Information promoting business events or services is considered advertising and will be referred to the advertising opportunities available through the Chamber’s various publications.  Business profiles will still be included in The Link quarterly newsletter, but will be general information about the business, not promoting a specific event or activity.
