LaRocca: Ways to get noticed in Addison

Community Voice

Looking for a way to draw more attention to your company name, product or service?

Why not consider taking advantage of a great opportunity that awaits our members, by adding your information to our “Shop Addison” program via our website?

All of our members are currently listed on the link, categorically by type of product or service.  A visitor coming to our area, or a resident or business operator looking for a product or service, can check the home page of our website at to access the list, by scrolling down and clicking on the  symbol.  

There they can click on any selected business and find the location, more information and a link to their website.   

Our members now have the option to add more information to their link, such as photos, advertised specials, hours, coupons and more, which they control themselves and can change as they wish. 

Want more opportunities? We will begin contacting businesses and members regarding the new edition of our Community Directory, which we hope to have available by February 2014. The directory will include a listing of our members and will offer advertising space. The directory will be distributed to Addison and neighboring community subscribers to the Daily Herald newspaper, and will be available through the Addison Park District, village of Addison, Addison Public Library and through our offices. Just like your telephone directory, people tend to keep a copy available. The issue will also be linked through our website as an alternative reference source.  

Among our upcoming events coming in the next few months will be our Multi-Chamber Special Event Luncheon, “Hit a Home Run For Your Business,” which will be held on Aug. 22.

Addison, Glendale Heights, Villa Park and possibly other chambers’ members will meet, network, and share in some baseball-themed fun events — similar to the October 2012 football-themed event, which everyone is still talking about!  

To be kept informed of our upcoming events, important notices and more, please have your email address added to our list – just contact us at, or by phone at 630-543-4300,

Naturally, if you wish more information about any of the events in this article, membership in the ACCI, or other matters, please feel free to contact us.  We look forward to hearing from you, and hopefully, seeing you at an upcoming event. 

Bernadette LaRocca is the executive director at the Addison Chamber of Commerce
