The Eagle Point Chamber of Commerce board of directors and membership recently voted to become the Eagle Point Chamber of Commerce dba Eagle Point Upper Rogue Chamber of Commerce.
The area from White City to Prospect is currently promoted and consider as the Upper Rogue. By expanding the chamber name, the members felt one larger voice would benefit all the communities including White City, Lake Creek, Eagle Point, Butte Falls, Shady Cove, Trail and Prospect.
The Eagle Point/Upper Rogue Chamber office is located in the Upper Rogue Independent. The chamber publishes a monthly newsletter to members, emails copies of the monthly minutes to members and has a website . Advertising is available on the website and in the newsletter. The Avenue of the Flags is a Chamber project. There is a greeters program wherein members may have information about their business or project hand delivered to 500 or 1,000 addresses in Eagle Point. This is a periodic project usually done quarterly.
The chamber has ambassadors that do ribbon cuttings for new businesses and for grand openings. The most recent such occurrence was Friday, July 24 at the new Lake Creek Store.
The board invites any individual and/or business to the next chamber meeting. The meetings are from 12-1 p.m. in the Ashpole Center, at Eagle Point City Hall, on the first Monday of the month. The board meets at 11:30. Members volunteer to host the luncheon and in turn have about 15 minutes to talk about their business.
The Chamber telephone number is 541-826-6945.
