Guidelines for Community Calendar

  1. The Greater Utica Chamber of Commerce reserves the right to accept or decline any calendar submission. Generally, the Chamber will be guided in its decisions by the guidelines that follow.
  2. The Chamber calendar is equal opportunity and non-discriminating. Events are considered without regard to the race, color, age, sex, religion, national origin, disability, handicap, marital status, or veteran’s status.
  3. The event must be in or near the Mohawk Valley, as opposed to events held in Syracuse or Albany, for example. An exception may be made for events outside of the Mohawk Valley if they are sponsored by a Chamber member.
  4. To avoid being overwhelmed by submittals, the Chamber will accept only events that are occasional by nature, not ongoing weekly or monthly events that are submitted with the expectation of continual listings.
  5. To be listed on the community calendar, the event must be open to the public. Aside from its own events, the Chamber will not ordinarily publish meetings or events for limited groups.
  6. In the interest of space, the Chamber reserves the right to limit the amount of information provided on the community calendar for any event.
  7. The Chamber reserves the right to limit the type of event accepted on the community calendar to those that it deems to be in good taste and in keeping with the standards of the community and the mission of the Chamber.
  8. The Chamber will not list on its community calendar those events sponsored solely to promote a particular candidate or candidates or events with the primary purpose of campaigning. Non-campaign events for current elected officials may be published. As for events designed to advance one or another side of a political issue, the Chamber will promote only those events supported in its Legislative Platform, which is approved by the Chamber's Board of Directors.
  9. The Chamber publishes calendar listings in good faith, but the submitting sponsor of the event will be responsible for checking the correctness of the entry; the Chamber is not responsible for errors or any losses/inconvenience resulting from errors.

Alternatives to promoting member event on Chamber’s Community Calendar

If member events do not satisfy these criteria and thus cannot be placed on the Community Calendar, we encourage the member to publicize their event through the Chamber in these ways:

  1. Provide the Chamber office with flyers and we will display for visitor pick up.
  2. Place an advertisement or flyer for a modest fee in the weekly Chamber e-newsletter.
  3. Place an advertisement or flyer for a modest fee in the monthly Chamber printed newsletter.
  4. Conduct a self-mailed promotion; purchase the Chamber mailing list.
