Recognizing the role engagement plays in member retention, improved engagement is a top priority for our Chamber.
We provide new members with an Ignite program and starter package to encourage new and existing members to take advantage of member benefits available to them. The 1 hour meeting and packet includes information needed to get started with updating the members page on the Chamber directory, ongoing events, and ways to get involved in the Chamber and community.
The Chamber’s goal is to ensure that members are engaged from the moment they join by increasing awareness of chamber happenings.
The engagement strategy is a relatively simple way to provide a pathway for members to get involved with chamber events and highlight the networking and online marketing benefits of membership. We encourage all our members to review the packet and utilize the benefits the Chamber has to offer.
If you would like to request a membership packet please contact our Membership Director, at 706-265-6278.
