The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce is planning an event this week that will involved more than 100 volunteers competing to sign-up new members.
According to a news release, for two and a half days, more than 100 volunteers will work against the clock and against each other to sign up new Chamber members and create community awareness of the role of the Chamber. The event is organized by Jimmy Cusano and a group called Your Chamber Connection. The group’s specialty is high energy membership campaigns that allow volunteers to conduct out-of-the-box membership fun while building the membership base.
“It’s about business,” said Mr. Cusano. “The Chamber of Commerce is the business community. This brings everyone together to build our Chamber. It’s a membership-based organization and most people don’t like membership drives. With a Membership Event like this, they come together in a competitive, fun setting and tell the Chamber story. When others hear about everything the Chamber does, all of a sudden you have a great deal of enthusiasm for the Chamber, and a great deal of support.”
The St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce Membership Event will kick off on Tuesday, Sept. 12, and end with a celebration on Thursday, Sept. 14.
