What will make your Chamber stand out in 2018?
creative and sustainable ways to demonstrate value to members and your community
Does your Chamber meet the “what have you done for me lately” expectations of your members at a time when the internet and social media offer so many business resources and networking opportunities?
Can you answer YES to the question, “Is the Chamber relevant to our members and our community?” If not, I can help you:
  • adopt a for-profit philosophy of, “What are we selling?” and “How are we selling it?”
  • promote creative new member benefits that will encourage them to spend their discretionary dollars with you
  • aid retention by building ongoing, participatory relationships with your members and their staff
  • tap into your community of volunteers, donors, and member resources
  • unify your message, give you common talking points, and create the materials you need
  • implement customized marketing plans for less money than staffing an internal marketing department
