Promotions & Marketing Committee

The Promotions and Marketing Committee is working together with the business and building owners to develop special and retail events in downtown Portland as well as to market Portland as a well-rounded collection of retail, restaurant, and service businesses. 

We encourage Portland residents to think Portland first when they need goods or services and save time and money that would be spent on the trip to Lansing or Grand Rapids. Shopping in Portland builds the local economy by creating jobs in current businesses as well as attracting new businesses and the jobs that those businesses will create. It also increases the selection of goods and services available in Portland!

Do you have a passion for planning and organizing events or working with businesses to foster cooperation and marketing efforts? Then you should consider joining our Promotions and Marketing Committee!

Promotions and Marketing Committee Chair:

Wanda Urie 

 

The Promotions and Marketing Committee meets the fourth Wednesday of every month
