Homer chamber’s annual meeting set for Tuesday

The Homer Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual meeting Tuesday at the Best Western Bidarka Inn, 575 Sterling Highway. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. The meeting will be from noon-1:30 p.m.

On the agenda are proposed bylaws changes and the unveiling of the chamber’s 2017 visitor guide. There will be a guest speaker from Stagvid Media to talk about social media. The door prize will be tickets from Ravn Airlines; those participating must be present to win.

Lunch is optional for $15.

The chamber’s bylaws require that 10 percent of the membership attend the annual meeting to conduct business. All members are encouraged to attend. In an invitation, the chamber promises an informative, fun and educational event.

Following the annual meeting, the chamber will host a grand opening and ribbon cutting at its new Baycrest Hill Overlook Visitors Kiosk. The event will begin at 2 p.m. and will last about 30 minutes.

The kiosk is the chamber’s new self-service visitors center, designed to help those arriving in Homer after the primary visitors center has closed.

For more information about the annual meeting or the new kiosk, call the chamber at 235-7740.
