Providing extensive information flow towards our members has been one of the accentuated tasks during the last four years, too. We have tried to seize every opportunity and channel through which we could continuously deliver the latest news to our members, let it be the changes of law, business offers, invitation to different occasions, or one of the services of our Chamber. In order to be able to recognise the needs of our members, besides the ones that are already provided, we believe it to be absolutely important to cultivate personal relationship with them. During the visits to companies, administration, and at the different programs we are open to the needs and claims of our members.
Up to the end of 2006 we informed our members via the News of the Chamber. This newspaper, which was the Chamber's own edition for quite a long time, was issued in 2,500 copies, and was delivered to our members. On the field of communication, however, there was a strategic change at the beginning of 2007. Taking advantage of the 40,000 readers of the county's newspaper, Petőfi Népe, a four-page long edition of the Gazdasági Ablak (Mirror of the economy) is released on the last working day of each month. This section on economy has come up to expectations, and in this way those enterprises and institutions that are not in close relationship with our organisation, can still get acquainted with the activities of our Chamber.
This change could be experienced on the website of our Chamber, too. Due to the continuous improvements and popularization, the number of visitors of our website, and the data downloaded from it are constantly increasing. Making use of the advantages of the electronical correspondence, one of our daily tools in informing our members is e-mail. We also try to deliver our Electronical Newsletter, containing current news and issues, to all our members with e-mail addresses.
Besides the printed press, we maintain good relationship with the colleagues of the local television and radio broadcast companies, who regulary report about the events in the Chamber to their viewers and listeners. As a constant heading, we would highlight our program on Kecskemét Television, the Mirror of the Economy, which presents in pictures the shapings of the economic life in our county.
The events and news of the Chamber are also presented in the Regional News, local press, and on the programs of Gong Radio.
