PB chamber reveals

its '20 decal design

The Pine Bluff Regional Chamber of Commerce has unveiled a new membership decal design for 2020.

The decal, designed by Arkansas Printing Co., is an updated version of a Pine Bluff Chamber of Commerce decal that, according to chamber officials, dates back to around the 1950s-1960s. The vintage-styled decal -- complete with the updated logo for the chamber -- is intended to honor the past while celebrating the possibilities of the future, said Chamber Director Lynette Bloomberg.

On Jan. 17, Redcoat President Donna Dial placed the first decal on the window of the chamber's first new business member of 2020. Aaron Loetscher officially opened his State Farm Insurance Agency at 2302 W. 28th Ave., Suite C, in Pine Bluff on Jan. 1. An official grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting is planned in February.

All active members of the chamber will receive the updated logo to display at their respective businesses. Bloomberg, in conjunction with members of the Chamber's Chairman's Club (Redcoats), will be meeting business owners face-to-face to deliver their new decals and to solicit feedback on how to best serve the needs of members and the community.
