It’s Time to Take Full Advantage of Your Chamber Membership
Does your business or organization belong to one of these groups?
- You’re business has been a Chamber Member for a short period of time. Joining the Chamber seemed to be a good decision, but now you’re wondering what you are “getting out it”. You are not 100% sure you’re going to renew your membership.
- You recently joined the Chamber but are unsure of all of the benefits and tools you now have available to you as a Chamber member.
- You are an advocate of the Chamber. Associating with similar like-minded individuals has been good for you, both professionally and personally. You already know a lot about the Chamber but a refresher course is in order.
On Thursday, December 12th, a New Member Orientation will take place at the Chamber’s Community Room. The event will begin at 8:30am with a light breakfast and coffee. The previous orientation event was well attended and people felt it was a good use of 60 minutes. This a NO COST event but reservations are requested as space is limited. Please RSVP online: EnglewoodChamber.com
If learning about the benefits of a Chamber membership isn’t enough to attend Thursday’s orientation, how about this? Each person who attends will receive a ticket into the drawing for a TV. Attendees can receive additional ticket entries by one of these two ways: (1) Non-Chamber members can arrive early and join the Chamber, or (2) Current Chamber members can invite a non-member, and if they join before the drawing, the current member will receive a 2nd entry into the TV drawing.
The ever popular Englewood Community Guide / Membership Directory will be released within the next 60 days. This publication serves two audiences. It is a popular resource to our vacationing guests as they plan their Englewood vacation. It is also extremely useful to our year-round residents as they use it to consider options when buying products or services. I’ve heard people refer to the Membership Directory as their yellow pages. All Chamber members are listed in the directory, so joining the Chamber before the publication is printed is a good business decision. Advertising opportunities are also available. Please contact the Chamber office to learn more. NOTE: Two premium advertising options have already been purchased. The back cover by Englewood Community Hospital and the inside back cover by Michael Saunders & Company.
