New chamber website to go live

A new website for the Lunenburg Chamber of Commerce is underway, according to members of the chamber and the speaker for the February Chamber of Commerce meeting.

The meeting was held Thursday at Victoria Restaurant.

Josh McClure, owner of information technology business Your PC Magician LLC out of Richmond, said the website is meant to share news among members as well as draw in new members.

“What we’re trying to do is give you all a website that one, you’re proud of and two, will attract new members,” McClure said.

Chamber President Mel Payne said the website has numerous features and “could do everything but make homemade ice cream.”

“The capabilities are pretty much endless,” McClure said. He said he would continue the conversation with members of the chamber about developing the website. “It will all be there,” McClure said.

Payne said Your PC Magician was chosen among four bids to develop the site.

McClure showed a webpage from the first iteration of the new website to members of the chamber from a laptop McClure brought with him.

He said the previous website played its role, but that it was out of date.

McClure described the layout of the new site as “fresh, clean and modern.”

He estimates that the website could go live within the next month or two.

Chamber Corresponding Secretary Ashley Sweitzer said the chamber has a Facebook page that will include updates of chamber activities. The Facebook page is called Lunenburg Chamber of Commerce.
