Volunteers of the Winona Chamber of Commerce race the clock to tell the chamber story
While most chambers of commerce struggle through their annual membership drive, the Winona Area Chamber of Commerce will host a membership event that is like none other. For two-and-a-half days, over 100 volunteers will work against the clock and against each other to sign up new chamber members and create a greater community awareness of the important role of the Chamber of Commerce. The event is organized by
Jimmy Cusano and a group called Your Chamber Connection. Its 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 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 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 YOUR CHAMBER membership event will kicked off on Tuesday, September 18, and will conclude on Thursday, September 20. For more information on how you can be involved, call the Winona Area Chamber of Commerce at 507-452-2272.
