What would you do at your chamber of commerce?

#Chambers   #Chamber  
Chambers are recognizing the member is expecting more personalized attention. Offerings have evolved from a parental idea of what members need to accommodating what members want. Providing value, from the member’s perspective, is the best way to ensure they will renew next year. How Far Does Accommodating Members Go?   This is not a question …

Does your chamber host candidate debates or forums? Here are some ideas for you.

#Chambers
Many people find that the process of narrowing down political candidates, understanding their platforms, and ultimately selecting a candidate who best fits their world view is difficult.

Here are some new ideas to get people networking at your chamber of commerce events.

#Chambers
Some people are natural networkers and you needn’t worry about them. They could have a good conversation with their reflection, but for many the idea of attending a chamber event alone takes us out of our comfort zone. So what can you do to make singles feel more comfortable at your events? Look for Commonalities …

What do you do at your chamber of commerce about npon-renewals?

#Chambers
A member of the Chamber of Commerce Professionals Group on Facebook asked: We promote our new members, we also promote renewing members, question, should we let our membership know when a member decides not to renew? Members build their business with the help of the Chamber, and then decide not to renew, but yet other …

Some very good advice here about content marketing for chambers. Is your chamber of commerce making these content marketing mistakes?

#Chamber   #Chambers  
Some content is more shareable than others. For instance business content shared to my personal Facebook stream (which is predominated by mommies and techies, not sure why but most of my friends fall into those categories), doesn’t go very far. They simply don’t need information on how to market a small business. Imagining one of my …

Are you guilty of making this social media mistake at your chamber of commerce?

#Chamber
There’s an organization I’ve been following for a while in my town. It caters to one of my hobbies. I follow it on Facebook so I can stay up-to-date. I am a bad Facebook follower because I have not marked it as a page I always want to see. I haven’t done it on purpose, …

Have you thought of this idea for your next chamber event?

#Chambers  
The Statesville Chamber of Commerce recently participated in the Davis Regional Amazing Race. This fun-filled activity brought the community together as they cheered on nearly 25 teams. Modeled after the television show “The Amazing Race,” where duos follow clues around the globe, this scaled-down version had groups of four visiting different spots throughout the community and …

Are you doing these things to bring in volunteers at your chamber of commerce?

#Chambers
I’m on the executive board of a membership group. We face a lot of the same issues our local chamber, and many of you probably do, a lack of new volunteers. Sure, we have the stalwarts you can always count on but they only have so much time in their days and how often can …
