Electronic billboard coming soon!

Coming soon, Lind Media will be upgrading one of their Tiffin billboards to an electronic board! What does that mean for us and our Chamber members? That means we have a permanent spot on that billboard that can cycle through up to 6 different advertisements!

Because of the quick turnaround—billboards, once submitted, can be up in a matter of minutes—the elimination of a production fee, and ability to put up more than one board at a time, we will have much more flexibility in promoting events in the community. 

Stay tuned for more information!

North Coast Business Journal: Welcoming Account Exec Kristina Willoughby

I am Kristina Willoughby, an Account Executive with Schaffner Publications Incorporated (SPI), a communications company, providing current information for over 30 years.  I oversee accounts for both The Beacon, a free weekly local newspaper for the general public and the North Coast Business Journal, a monthly publication that bridges the gap between Toledo, Cleveland and Columbus business worlds.
