Gaining visibility is one of the most challenging marketing tasks for our Chamber members, especially those in the small business category that may not have substantial marketing budgets. Since the inception of this partnership with DDI Media, dozens of members have achieved their business goals and attributed some of their marketing success to the digital billboard program. While we certainly do not suggest you rely on billboard advertising for, we do believe it is a great addition to existing marketing strategies and promotional avenues - you'll be up on the billboard with companies that have multi-million dollar advertising budgets... how cool is that? It is for this reason and the great partnership with DDI media that we continue to offer this program.


Additional details:
- Exposure can be increased by purchasing multiple slots in a cycle (ex: 1 slot = 40 exposures/day; 2 slots = 80 exposures/day; 3 slots = 120 exposures/day, etc.)
- You have opportunity to change artwork at any time
- Graphic design assistance is available for $25/design

  • How is cannabis in 2022 different from the 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s?
  • How can cannabis affect sleep quality, and what does that mean on subsequent days?
  • How does cannabis affect mental health?
  • How addictive is cannabis, and what are withdrawal symptoms people could experience when they stop using?
  • How long after cannabis use should someone wait before driving?
Hear the answers to these questions and more, plus get your questions answered as we look at the recent science related to cannabis use (and what it means in our communities).
