E National Newspaper California Newspaper Association Publishers Association A message from the Chamber President Julian's Chamber of Commerce is proudly serving the community, and looking forward to more opportunities in 2017. The Chamber board election results were tallied at the December board meeting. Incumbents Tracy Turner and Barbara Hedrick were re-elected, with congratulations also going to incoming directors Jim Wayman and Robin Boland. Much appreciation to those who ran but are not joining the board; Jan Paulsen, Mike Simser, Roger Spilman, Zora Martinez, Krisie Morgan, and Julie Degenfelder. All were contacted and thanked for their interest in serving the community, and we expect they will all contribute to our efforts to promote and protect our town in the future. As Chamber President Ed Glass stated: "there are committees to serve on, and many things to accomplish." A summary of the year includes much, but first, a thank you to departing Chamber movers and shakers: *Mike Menghini, who continues to strongly support Julian after leaving the board one year ago. *Diana Garrett, a tireless member of many Julian groups this year, stepping away to spend more time with her best friend Don. *Patti Bell, former manager of RaboBank, who enthusiastically continued to serve out her Chamber position while fine-tuning the financial aspects and budget for our organization. *Dick Thilken, who passed earlier this year. Dick served on the Chamber Board many years, as well as giving to countless other community groups. We salute his life, service, and love for his family. In other news... Julian will finally have a new bank in early 2017, as Community Valley Bank opens their 4th branch here. Jon Edney, CEO of the El Centro based bank, contacted the Julian Chamber earlier this year to help plan, organize and facilitate the return of banking operations to Julian following the departure of RaboBank in 2015. A new group, the BackcoUntry Economic Development Coalition, meets monthly to promote opportunities for our region,. Including Chambers from Julian, Borrego Springs, Ramona, Valley Center and Alpine, they are focused on improving the economies of the communities in the sphere o`.f metrop01i.ta.n San Diego,, ,:This i .=,no.t about increased crowds of touris'-ts and events, but about makingour community stronger. Join us with your energy, enthusiasm and time. This is our community. Ed Glass, Chamber President Innkeeper, Butterfield B & B & Black Oak Cabin A New Webcarn with a live feed on Main Street, showing the weather and crowds! We have a dedicated social media expert posting to our Julian Chamber Facebook Page daily, with over 5000 followers. And we are working on a Mobile App for Julian and the surrounding areas. The Chamber website is one of the best marketing tools for our members. With an average of 30,000 people using the site to learn more about Julian, every month. The calendar is the most popular page (averaging 14,650 hits per month). In November 2016, 4,283 visitors clicked straight to our lodging page for information of where to stay in Julian. More than a third of those landing on our home page, click to another page on our site, this is really great news. If you want to know how many people clicked to visit your website any given month, email and she will be happy to run the report for you. The webcam was installed last month (along with one on the Pioneer Museum) and is proving to be a valuable marketing tool. Visitors can see for themselves our quaint Main Street, and the weather. Several TV news stations have already shared it and plan to continue sharing Julian every chance they get. Last, but not least, we are working on a Mobile App for Julian. This will make is as easy as pie for visitors to find our businesses. A mobile app does not come cheap, and we are looking into several possibilities from hiring a professional to create and manage it to doing it ourselves. The App should be rolling out in the first quarter of 2017. Listing on the app will be available to members at the lowest cost possible. One of the major benefits to our members is that the Chamber now has a contract with a professional Marketing Company. This means we have a plan and manpower to implement the plan. You will be receiving a call from Robin Boland within the next couple of weeks to tell you about specific efforts to improve traffic to your business and how you may participate. Be sure to respond to Robin's call, it is strictly to help you promote YOUR Business. We look forward to a year of growth in 2017.
