Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce & Industry to Offer Free Travel Program for Members

  • Share:
April 01, 2017

The Chamber enthusiastically announced that the newest member benefit is ‘Travel Assistance & Bag Carrying.’

Starting today, members are now able to invite Chamber staff with them when traveling to warm locations for vacation! That’s correct – one (or all) of your friendly Chamber representatives will gladly travel, all expenses paid (i.e. you pay for the trip), with you to Florida, California, Caribbean, heck, even Australia if that is where you are going.

“We’ve had so many members stop by the office looking relaxed and tan that we had to do something,” said Chamber President, Ann Ormond, “we’re always willing to go above and beyond to help our members…even if it means setting up their poolside cabana,” she added.

The Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce is the first Chamber in the world to offer this perk. Chamber member, Gig Michaud, Captain of Compass Rose Yacht Charters was the first to test this program.

“It was so great having the Chamber staff with my wife and me in Turks & Caicos. Ann helped us make so many friends, Terry tested all the cocktails for us, Chris carried our bags, Janet applied our sunscreen, Anne made sure we got the best deals on drinks and Paula moved our umbrella when the sun moved,” said Gig, “I’ll gladly travel with them again and you should too!”

To set up our trip please contact Anne Wilt at 978-462-6680 x13.  We can feel the sun already!
