SYNDICATED CALENDAR SYSTEM
The Official Calendar Network was created to help communities inter-connect all of their businesses, organizations and events with ease.
Once in place, an advanced central calendar network makes it easy to promote the region through the Official Mobile App and Official Area Network. Imagine ONE CALENDAR FOR THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY.
It's easily accessed through websites, search engines and mobile applications. Users can select the particular organization to see only their events, or look at all community-wide events at the same time. Community event planners love it because they can easily coordinate and plan non-conflicting events.
Calendars and events have a dramatic impact on local economic development. We don't take calendar management lightly.
MOBILE PUBLISHING SYSTEM
Our Chamber Nation and Membership Management Systems are designed to promote small to large communities via our platform. These systems gather content through our unique process, so that communities we serve truly work online.
We've now expanded the system to power mobile apps for Apple iPhone®, Google Android® and HTML5 mobile devices. These applications are available for the entire community as well as individual members.
CHAMBER SOCIAL NETWORK
The Chamber Social Network was designed to efficiently deliver leads to members. Now we've added features that now make it essentially a diary of everything going on at the Chamber.
With email message opens sinking to new lows, this diary approach becomes a powerful tool in keeping members up to date. The live streaming widgets for websites and mobile devices keep the community up-to-date and show member prospects the temendous value of joining their chamber.
MOBILE COMMUNITY NEWS
In today's mobile world it's vital for members to provide community content while on the go. We offer Mobile Community News in our mobile applications to give members that edge.
Members can use their iPhones and Android mobile devices to quickly and easly contribute to the Mobile Community News stream.
Leads, requests for proposals, member-to-member business development, special offers, community events and community news, all through a central community information stream, combine to communicate the tremendous value of membership.
The importance of this useful content being live through websites and mobile applications adds another reason for local people to connect with the Chamber of Commerce.
MOBILE APP TOOLS FOR STAFF
PROPOSAL SUBMISSION SYSTEM
Many organizations have annual/quarterly conferences,and conduct a "call for presenters," asking their members and people in various fields or industries to submit proposals for presentations, training sessions, and events.
This process can be difficult. The proposals go through a review process to determine which will be accepted and approved for inclusion in the conference. The Proposal Submission System is a first-generation attempt to automate this process via the web.
Proposals are submitted online by their presenters. They are tracked through different stages of screening and scoring. Ultimately some are selected.
The process is somewhat fixed at this time, but please feel free to ask for customizations.
Many thanks to Terry Osborn and the International Society for Language Studies for the initial design for this system.
LEGISLATIVE ACTION CENTER
We are pleased to provide Chamber Nation customers with a formal Legislative Action Center.
LIVE MEMBER LAUNCH MEETINGS
We offer on-site member educational services for a fee, or free remote training provided as part of your launch process.

TURNKEY SALES PLAN
We save you time. We work with hundreds of Chambers and tens-of-thousands of the members from those Chambers on a daily basis. We service Chambers in over forty states under the brand Chamber Nation.
In our nationwide work we've learned what members appreciate from their Chambers. From leading member classes we know what members appreciate most from their Chamber of Commerce memberships. Armed with this information and our system infrastructure, we provide Chambers with a terrific membership sales plan that works.
We now offer that experience to all organizations who are focused on local economic development objectives.
IDEAL FOR BOTH SMALL AND LARGE CHAMBERS OR ORGANIZATIONS
Our programs are designed and supported from Quincy, CA, a small town in the Sierra Nevada. Our support staff lives in a small town. Many of them have owned their own small businesses; they understand the tools small businesses need in order to grow.
Tools like online sales plans and education are invaluable. Our founders have a great deal of experience working with Chambers of Commerce nationwide and make extensive use of online sales and educational tools. We take great pride in our award winning support and excellent on-demand or live video training programs.
By providing cooperative shared Chamber training and support programs throughout the country, the efficiency gains allow us to include consulting with our programs at no additional cost.
This means that a powerful sales program is affordable for even the smallest Chambers.

To save time members can always opt for additional support; larger member businesses can opt for MemberSquad.
Members of these participating organizations are provided with 'special' access to become trusted news commentators for community information, photos and their own business updates.

Members who use this system enjoy the special benefit of being able to use the integrated 'Multi-Post' system to broadcast their news and special offers into FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter and the Member News Network with ONE CLICK.
Photos play a very important part in promoting a community, and promoting its businesses.

Photos can be taken instantly on mobile devices (phones or tablets) and then electronically posted to various areas of this network.
Areas where mobile photos are accepted:
