Marketing on the menu of Jan. 16 luncheon [Column]

Kick start 2014 and learn some new marketing strategies at the chamber's New Year Luncheon Meeting noon on Thursday, Jan. 16 at the Catonsville Clubhouse, formerly the Catonsville Women's Club's facility, 10 St. Timothy's Lane.

In today's busy world, it's harder than ever to draw attention to the services your business or nonprofit group has to offer. If your New Year's resolution was to get out there and increase your visibility in the marketplace, this week's event will help create a comprehensive plan for a vibrant informative presence in the community, online and in print?

It's Chamber 101 as members learn how to get the biggest return on their membership dollars and how to make the chamber work for them.

To find out about the variety of resources the chamber offers to build a ready-made marketing plan and help your business or organization develop network connections within the Catonsville community, go to or call 410-719-9609.

Harness the power of 12

Most of the time, local business organizations like the Greater Catonsville Chamber of Commerce focus their efforts inside their own borders.

But once a year, these organizations join forces, reach across boundaries, and create a networking opportunity of mega proportions. It's called the "Mega Networking Event" for good reason. You can harness the power of 12 different professional business organizations to promote your business, forge new connections, and mix and mingle with the best to learn how to take your business to the next level.

You can even expand your presence and show off your business by purchasing a trade show table for only $100 which includes your registration.

Whether you choose to establish your business as an exhibitor or want to focus your efforts on networking, don't miss this once-a-year opportunity.

It happens Wednesday, Jan. 22, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Baltimore North in Towson.

Registration fee includes heavy hors d'oeuvres, a free drink ticket, and free parking.

To register or to learn more, go to or call 410-719-9609.
