Chamber Marketing Partners helps chambers of commerce, convention and visitors bureaus and other member associations maximize the financial performance of their community guides, visitor guides, membership directories and business directories while maintaining complete control over their projects.
There is a lot of revenue to be gained for organizations that want to bring their community guides, visitor guides, membership directories, business directories and other publications in-house. But publishing isn’t a chamber’s core competency.
When you work with CMP, our team of professionals becomes an extension of your team, providing expertise in project management, marketing and editorial strategy, sales coaching and more. We keep your project on track, while you stay focused on the needs of your members.

Ed Burzminski has been involved in custom publishing since the mid-1980s, having owned and operated custom publishing companies that served chambers of commerce across the U.S.
During the Recession of 2008, turnkey publishers were collapsing and in their pursuit of non-dues revenue, Chambers began taking their publications in-house. While not a Chamber’s core competency, many Chambers needed the revenue and undertook the burden. Ed created CMP to coach and guide Chambers on the process from start to finish, allowing Chambers to take control of their publications and generate strong financial returns.
Ed works with Chamber management to create a strategy for the publications, oversees project budgets, communicates regularly with Chamber management and manages/coaches the ad sales staff.
