Want to make the most of your Chamber membership? Here are 9 ways you can maximize your Chamber membership.
1. Review your membership packet
Your membership packet is a valuable resource that contains the information you will need to make your Chamber membership work for you. Keeping it nearby with easy access will allow you to review all the benefits based on your membership investment level, and share it with other staff members who may benefit from this information. Included in this packet is a membership plaque. Display your plaque proudly for instant recognition and credibility.
2. Identify what you hope to gain from your membership
Whether you’re looking to build relationships with peers and potential customers, develop professionally through educational workshops and programs, raise your profile as a community leader, or utilize discounts that drive dollars to your bottom-line, the Chamber is the place for you and your employees to get connected. The Chamber staff and volunteers are here to help shape your membership into something specifically designed for you and your business.
