NonProfit Testimonials

Troy Chamber of Commerce

“We are pleased that we are now able to offer more complete information that our members and prospects can access 24/7 (and it's easier to find everything on this site). Adding the online registration portion of the site has been extremely beneficial and having the ability to update our own calendar as necessary is a great option that MediaG has afforded us. We were looking for a future-focused design for the site and MediaG did not disappoint...”
