Investing In New Opportunities For OUR Business Community

By: Josh Cross, CEO & President of the Atascadero Chamber of Commerce

With life returning to normal, now more than ever, people in our community and visitors are looking for places to visit, shop, and enjoy. That’s why I’m excited to share that, for the first time, the Chamber team has partnered with MetroMedia to prepare the Official Atascadero Destination Guide & Business Directory! We want to take advantage of this rare opportunity and palpable excitement that people have to get out of the house and explore our community. Through this partnership, our goal is to make sure every Chamber Member has the opportunity to get get out in front of eager shoppers to promote their businesses within the Directory.

I’m over the moon with excitement for this new guide. This magazine-style publication is going to be the talk of the town! You can expect to find beautiful high-quality photos, heart-warming stories, helpful information about living in our community, and more. Most importantly, thanks to the new partnership between your Chamber and the MetroMedia team, it’ll feature local businesses like yours.

As a Chamber Member, you can enjoy the following perks if you would like to participate in the guide.

– Access to member pricing for your advertisement in the guide. (This will help us cover the cost of assembling, printing, and distributing the guide.)

– A full-color presentation of your advertisement, at no extra cost.

– Complimentary advertising design, if desired.

– Twice the exposure, your advertisement will be featured in the magazine’s print version and the digital version (which will be featured on our social media, newsletters, and website for added reach).

Our dedicated contact, Tammie Easson, from MetroMedia is ready to help get you connected to the guide. Contact her asap before spots run out by emailing her at or by calling 417-629-7935.

We’ll continue to do our part in investing in opportunities to promote and support OUR business community. As always, your Chamber team is here for you! We’d love to hear your ideas for future opportunities, so please feel free to give us a call at (805) 466-2044, email, or stop by; our office is open!
