I hope you are enjoying the cooler weather and the event increase on the calendar.
Amador Council of Tourism is holding its quarterly evening meeting, next Thursday, Sept 11 5:30 pm, at the Holiday Inn Express. Please stop by and see the pool and outdoor area under construction. As always, refreshments will be provided.
A couple of updates:
1. Publishing on Sunday, September 14th will be an insert in the newspapers owned by Bay Area News Group,which include San Jose Mercury, Contra Costa Times, Oakland Tribune, Santa Cruz Sentinel. This insert was sponsored by Amador Vintners Association and Amador Council of Tourism and all of our local businesses that bought an ad. Editorial happened independently of us and I hope it gives us all a bump in business through the fall season. Thank you to those who bought ads and supported the publication.
2. A new map is available at the office. While we are pulling together the new edition of the visitors guide, the map will serve as an interim piece for our visitors, and to fulfill requests from our ads and our website. If you want some for your business, please stop by and pick some up. Thank you to our map sponsors: Amador Vintners Association, Black Chasm Cavern, City of Plymouth, and Davenport Properties.
3. Strategic Marketing Group is developing a marketing proposal for Amador County. Look for an invite to hear what the report has to say and what our next steps will be. This information can help us grow the pie for all of our businesses going forward. Thanks to those who participated in the focus groups; Amador businesses and regions were well-represented.
4. Speaking of our new visitors guide, I will send out a call next week, for advertisers in the next edition. Details of price, ad size and distribution will be included. The ad costs support the design and print costs.
As always, if you have questions or suggestions, please call the office at 267-9249 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. My email is email@example.com.
Thank you for your support,
