Chamber Business Industry Education Day online this year

August 3 is the last day for local businesses to reach Culpeper County’s largest employer through the Annual Business Industry Education Day of the Chamber of Commerce.

Due to the pandemic, this year’s event will be online. The chamber has created an email that will be sent out the week of August 10 to more than 1,250 employees of Culpeper County Public Schools – administrators, staff and all new and returning teachers.

The content of the email will highlight local businesses in whatever format they choose. Customized images, links to webpages, documents or emails, coupons codes, barcodes, QR codes, videos and more can be added to the email, per the preference of each business.

The content of the electronic correspondence will also be live online at a site accessible to teachers prior to the virtual Business Industry Education Day event.

To sign up or for information, contact Amy Frazier at or 540/825-8628.
