Must read for chamber professionals...
I’m a sucker for reading lists. Not sure why. Maybe it’s the endless summers of being told what to read but nonetheless, when I see a list, I always check it out. That’s part of the reason I thought to do this post. The other is this post from April Rome Wehrs from the Chamber …

What are you doing to streamline processes at your chamber?
Innovation comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes it’s the small things that make a big difference in reducing costs or making tasks more efficient. A member of the Chamber of Commerce Professionals Group on Facebook asked: What are new techniques/technologies you and/or your organization are using to improve operational efficiency?

Do you do this for the chamber ambassadors?
Some of us are natural networkers. Hopefully your chamber ambassadors are, but if they aren’t, do you give them networking tasks or instructions to help them make the most of your chamber events? While your ambassadors are volunteers and members, giving them goals or instructions (for those who need them) to maximize their networking time …

Is your chamber handling interns right? What's your policy on pay versus no-pay?
With summer quickly approaching it seems fitting that a member of the Chamber Professionals Group on Facebook asked: Quick question on interns – pay or no pay?

Does your chamber have control?
Years ago many of us handed the keys to our kingdom to a web designer because it was all just too complicated and it made sense for the “professionals” to handle it. In the time that has since elapsed many things have changed. A chamber of commerce professional on the Facebook Group asked: Do any …

What are you using at your chamber?
A member of the Chamber of Commerce Professionals Group on Facebook asked: What program does your Chamber use to make promotional materials? Flyers, newsletters etc….. The chamber professionals gladly shared what they use in their offices. The paid software wouldn’t surprise anyone. There were offices using Photshop, InDesign, and Publisher. But the chamber professionals also …

Is your organization guilty of this?
The following really happened, only the names were changed, and to be fair, it didn’t happen at a chamber but with another membership organization. Still the lesson rings true for chambers as well. It went something like this… Mr. Business’ membership lapsed by about 6 months. There wasn’t a reason he didn’t renew, just one of …

We all struggle with content. It’s not so much the posting — that can be automated. It’s thinking of original things to post that drains our time.

How We Serve

Chamber Pros Insider: Exclusive (private) professional development for serious chamber pros. Special emphasis on social media, digital marketing and modern business strategies. Connect with hundreds of your peers and colleagues to “Learn. Share. Grow.” 

When you don’t have time to waste (and want to be among the very best in the chamber industry), be an Insider. 


• Professional Speaking: Boldly bringing new ideas and new ways of thinking to the chamber industry. This is no time to learn about how things used to be done. Social media, digital marketing and modern business strategies for chambers and their members.

When you and your board are willing to rethink everything, when you are ready to leverage the changes that are upon you, call me.
