The Zanesville-Muskingum Chamber of Commerce held a meeting Thursday morning for chamber members

Chamber President Tom Poorman says the meetings are important for members to not only get together and share what’s going on with their business, but also a time to reach out to customers through social media.

"The utilization of it is just growing by leaps and bounds. So that was one thing we talked about today was using social media to network, to promote your business, using the chambers facebook page for example is what we specifically talked about," said Poorman.

Another highlight of Thursday morning’s meeting are member’s use of the chamber’s web based services.

"We have meetings like this but we also have web based services that they can utilize without ever leaving their place of business so there are new services coming out all the time that were able to offer because of new development in software," said Poorman.

The chamber holds meetings for members every other month. For more information, you can visit their web site at
