As we near 2010,Â we’d like to offer a countdown to your best Chamber Membership Year ever. Each day as we come closer to the beginning of the new year, we’ll offer a tip for success with your Chamber membership.
Today, at number 10, “Meet the Chamber Staff”:
The staff at your Chamber of Commerce is here to help you get more from your Chamber membership.Â Make certain that we understand what you do and what you wish to accomplish by being a member.
Most people who join the chamber do so to meet other people.Â While the Chamber serves as a meeting point for key business and community leaders, it also serves as the meeting place for business people from all walks of life. When the staff knows you and understands what you are looking for, they will be better equipped to help you in your endeavors. When you meet staff members, take a moment to understand what they do for the Chamber so that you will know the right person to go to when you have questions or needs.
Knowing the people who will be working on your behalf is a vital step in successful Chamber members.
