Members Named TOP WINNERS in 2021 Reader Rankings

Annually, the Rochester Business Journal (RBJ) and The Daily Record (TDR) host the Reader Rankings, which extends over six months. In March, the public is invited to nominate businesses online, in specific industrial categories. During the month of May, the public has the opportunity to select one of the businesses appearing in each industrial category. Votes are counted and communications are produced during June and July. In August, the top three WINNERS are announced for each category and finally the TOP WINNERS are revealed via online video. Each step of the process includes coverage in all of the respective publications in print and online, plus Socia Media. The RBJ and TDR have done a complete job in providing 'frequency' of visibility for these nominated and ultimately chosen businesses. 'Frequency' is the secret sauce of advertising - allowing for memory to aide in recall and being present when decisions are being made. Thank you to all of our voting members who offered their support to other members! Please join us in congratulating our members:

Monroe County Sheriffs Getting to Know Members for Safety

We have had recent opportunities to talk with the Monroe County Sheriffs as they participated in our Fourth of July run and parade and attended our first post-COVID shutdown outdoor Coffee. At the Coffee, the officers talked about the value of having businesses' contact information in case of emergencies. For example, if they are passing by a business after hours and find the door open, who do they call? They are actively gathering business contact information from multiple sources, one of which is the Chamber. Please take the time to review your Chamber directory information and ensure that the telephone number can be reached or is monitored 24/7. Go to:
