working hard to help you.

The Jay Peak Area Chamber is working hard behind the scenes to gear up for businesses re-opening and socializing again. We are confident this next summer & winter seasons will be strong and new customers, as well as current visitors, will be stopping by the Top of VT.
That being said, the JPACC/TOV Board of Directors has been reacting to the unprecedented time with EVERY small business in mind.

Business & Financial Information

The Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development hosted a series of webinars to help explain the Vermont Economic Recovery Package and how it will support various sectors throughout the economy.

Chamber Cash Program

The JPACC/ToV has implemented a “chamber cash” program. Each day while on quarantine, the chamber chooses a “winner” from our 1400 current membership list. We call and offer a $50.00 gift certificate to any food establishment of their choice.

Karen then calls the business and pays for the gift certificate with the ToV credit card. The response has been overwhelming! Restaurant and food establishments have been so appreciative and gracious.

Moo 92 Business Promotions

The JPACC/ToV is working with Moo92 for promoting area business and will update you all with the details as soon as they are determined.

Barton Chronicle Ads

Ads in The Barton Chronicle have been made and will continue to take place in print as we move forward in the upcoming weeks.

Equity Share Program

The chamber has applied for a USDA-RBDG grant for Equity Share and Video Marketing Initiative. These efforts will certainly assist area business in promotions and provide more reasonable rates for products and benefits to excel/reboot area businesses and marketing in each community.

Hopefully, these funds will be allocated to the ToV in early July.

Summer Promotions & Deals

Please contact the chamber if you would like to collaborate with other businesses to offer a “Deal or Package.”

We will assist in the gathering of the offerings and help market them on Facebook and topofvt.com.
