Osprey Nokomis Florida Chamber of Commerce


2014 – 2015 ONCC Membership Renewal


osprey-nokomis-florida-chamber-of-commerce-logoDear Friends,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for engaging in the business community spirit here in Osprey and Nokomis. Your membership in our Chamber really did make a difference in 2013/2014 and we are all proud to be founding members of an historic organization that currently is turning heads in the corridors of far larger organizations.

Our Chamber has proven to be the most fun and friendly of environments to network in. Whether we are operating tables together at the Halloween event in Oscar Scherer Park, kayaking up the Intra-Coastal Waterways or sharing a drink at Bayside Grill, we all have one thing in common. Friendship and this wonderful environment that we live in. This is truly a very special Chamber filled with very lovely people and so many of us now doing business with our fellow members. I for one have engaged many of you too, from insurance, kayaking, pet food, hair cuts, banking and oh! so much more.

This year our emphasis has been on technology and we are spending a lot of time, money and energy in areas such as the website: www.ospreynokomisflorida.com (also: ospreynokomischamber.com) This is a state of the art mobile-responsive website that is reaching nearly 10,000 visitors monthly, giving our local area and it’s businesses a lot of exposure online.

Renewal of your ONCC membership ensures your business will have a custom webpage on our site. After your updated application and payment has been processed your webpage will be created by the team at Target Marketing Promotions. Sue and Gus Traeder have worked hard on the site (and have donated a huge amount of their time and expertise) to make sure it can be found in web searches and provides the information visitors want in an easy to navigate directory format.

Please help them, to help you when they call for information regarding your business webpage listing. All webpage listings will be scheduled on a first come, first served basis and will feature up to 5 images as well as a business description. (Your member app will be used for: Address, phone, email, website URL & Social Media links)

The printed Osprey Nokomis Directory has been distributed and will be made available to thousands of visitors that enjoy this area each year. Bentley’s Hotel itself hosts in excess of 50,000 guests per year and that is a conservative count. Imagine when these historic books are made available just how many potential customers you could be attracting.

Check us out on line at www.ospreynokomisflorida.com and attend a meeting if you have any doubts whatsoever. Don’t forget to tune in to www.radioearnetwork.com every Thursday 3:00 PM and listen to Chamber Chat. Also our Facebook and Twitter accounts are managed by Mary of Silent Sports and Tracey from Suntrust Bank, be sure to check them out too.

Renew your membership TODAY to avoid disappointment and missing out on the benefits of being in this very special LOCAL Chamber of Commerce. We also reach out to the greater Sarasota, Venice, Englewood & Northport areas.

Thank you for your time, energy and contribution to our LOCAL area economy.

For and on behalf of Osprey Nokomis Chamber of Commerce.

Rod Thomas. 2014 President Tel: (941) 441-9043

How to Edit a Business Listing


Editing your business listing is easy! Follow these simple steps and update your information at any time. (Please be patient, it may take 24 – 48 hours for changes to be published)


LOGIN to your account. (Login details are emailed to you after your member web-page is completed or if you registered/added listing in the past, use same Username & Password)


Once you are logged in navigate to your Business Webpage. (Under your selected category)


Click on the title or name of your listing, to be directed to your complete webpage. Then, click on the link (in small box) that says: EDIT LISTING which is located next to the link for “Add to Favorites” just down on the left and above the social media icons.


On the “Edit Listing” page you will be able to update your address/map, contact information, website, social media, business description and images. (Delete any images you don’t want and browse to upload new images from your computer) Note: Leave the image description field blank, N/A

If your listing has been published for awhile it’s best not to change your TITLE since this will affect your listing in online page results, making it unavailable to searchers until it gets indexed again. The title is used as your URL/subpage on the website.

If you need your CATEGORY changed (or would like to be featured in more categories) contact Sue at: 941-227-3251


SAVE ANY CHANGES before logging out!

That’s it, you’re good to go!!
