With the new Mount Vernon Springfield Chamber of Commerce comes new opportunities for our members. Starting this year, we invite members to write a blog post about their industry that will be posted on our blog on this new website and shared through social media. We intend for our blog to be a useful and credible source of information for business professionals in the community to stay informed about trends, best practices, what to expect, innovation, and other business and industry-related information.


The blog post should contain content that would be of general interest to the business community. With that in mind, submissions should avoid any direct selling or sales pitches. In addition, content should be original work.


Writing a blog allows you to be a leader in your industry and in the community. Contributing to the Mount Vernon Springfield Chamber of Commerce blog can also help your SEO strategy with keywords and backlinks, and can lead to new prospects.


The format for the blog should include:

  • Title
  • Topic or Industry
  • Author Information: Name, Title, Company/Organization, Website URL/Address
  • Summary (1-2 sentences)
  • Body (generally 300-600 words)
  • Image (if available)


Please submit your blog post for consideration to info@mountvernonspringfield.com. At least one blog from one company will be posted each week.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the Chamber blog, please contact David Griffin, Marketing and Communications, at david@mountvernonspringfield.com
