My Galveston Launches Website to Promote Island Living
MyGalveston.com Showcases Island for Potential Residents and Employees
GALVESTON, TX July 6, 2015 – MyGalveston.com is here. The site, developed by members of the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce C-Crewe, a group of young professionals, aims to promote Galveston Island as a great place to live and work. The site will continue to grow to become the primary website for anyone potentially moving or working on the island. Information on MyGalveston.com will eventually include resources to housing, schools, nightlife, arts and culture, and more.
“We are extremely proud of the work our committee has accomplished in promoting Galveston as a premiere location to live,” said Johnston Farrow, co-chair of the My Galveston committee. “MyGalveston.com presents our city the way Galvestonians see it – a vibrant, safe, unique beach community filled with people that care about each other, great educational options, and plenty of jobs. We believe this site will help recruiters, realtors, and employers when attracting people to the island.”
The My Galveston campaign started in 2011 when members of the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce C-Crewe recognized a major need to promote the city of Galveston and push positive perceptions to those who either commute to the island to work, those who visit, and those who live off the island. MyGalveston.com comes after countless hours of volunteer work by active young professionals who seek to showcase the island and move it in a positive direction. My Galveston won best committee at the 2015 Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce awards.
The My Galveston committee is in the midst of a fundraising campaign to build a long-range, sustainable campaign that will include presence at local events and a large-scale advertising campaign throughout the Texas and Louisiana region. The committee plans on raising public and private funds while bringing together Galveston’s major employers, civic organizations, and educational institutions to drive its singular message: Galveston Island is a wonderful place to call home.
