President/CEO MessageMyChamber AppThe Bremerton Chamber has launched a new mobile app called MyChamberApp!It's a little different style than the 'Bremerton' app, but it has some major benefits to both us, and our members.Foremost, it is a nationwide app, that is being used by over 400 Chambers of Commerce. It is available for iPhone/iPad and Android devices, and it uses GPS to find the closest Chamber and populates it with the business and event info.
The great part about it for us, is that it uses our ChamberMaster database to update, so anytime a new member signs up, they are automatically on the App, and it also populates local events. Simple to use, automatic updating, and local events right at your fingertips!

West Sound Expo Wrap UpWe would like to thank everyone who joined us at the West Sound Expo again this year, whether you set up a booth, sponsored the event, or joined us in the public portion. It was a great success, the food was great, and attendance was good!Thank you once again to Kitsap Credit Union for being our Major Sponsor for the West Sound Expo!Armed Forces Festival SponsorshipThere are plenty of opportunities for sponsorship for the festival this year, between the Ambassador Program, the Pepsi Armed Forces Day Golf Tournament, The Parade, and the Military Culinary Arts Competition, we have quite a few chances to feature your business in this fantastic annual event.
Last year we added booths on 5th Street the day of the parade, which was a great addition to the festival, and this year we are offering a new, and inexpensive way, for the general public to support Armed Forces Day. We are now offering an 'Honor a Veteran' sponsorship. For a small fee of $100 you can honor a loved one with and 'In Memory of' or an 'In Honor of' listing, that will be hung on the front of the Chamber building right by the Lions Pancake Breakfast, and we will dedicate a page on the Chamber website for a year. Click Honor a Veteran to the registration page, and put the name of the Veteran in the comments, and choose, In Memory, or In Honor.
