Newport chamber gets boardroom upgrades
The Newport County Chamber of Commerce recently finished efforts to offer new innovations to its members. The chamber’s boardroom has received a technological upgrade and is now equipped with a 60-inch flat-screen TV, wireless conference telephone system and a camcorder.
The technology presents the chamber and its members with new opportunities to interact. The equipment is user friendly and plug and play ready. Capabilities to connect to the Internet for web browsing and voiceover IP services are also available.
The boardroom seats 30 and is available free to chamber members hourly or by the day. Included in the free rental are Internet, whiteboard, television, video projector, wireless teleconferencing and video recording. Limited kitchen facilities are also available.
According to chamber officials, the investment creates a successful solution for members, especially small businesses, that do not have the budget.
