Pittsburg-Camp County Chamber of Commerce Marquee Guidelines – We are happy to put your upcoming event on our marquee outside of the office, but I do want to make you aware of the general guidelines. Chamber events get priority, followed by Chamber Member events. If additional space is available, we consider non-chamber member events. We ask that you request space on the marquee at least two weeks in advance. The sign will typically update on Monday afternoon.
Lots of exciting events are coming up in the next few weeks! See below for all of the details. As always, if you have an upcoming event, you would like included in a future email, please let me know.
