Carbon Chamber & Economic Development Corp.
The Chamber Executive VP
Affiliate Chambers & Councils
At the beginning of each year, New Year’s resolutions surface and many of us set goals that focus on self improvement as we vow to eat well and get in shape. I often explain that joining the Chamber is just like joining the gym. In order to get your body in shape, you have to go to the gym on a regular basis to see results. In the same exact way, to get the full affect of your chamber membership, you must be active on a regular basis and full take advantage of your benefits.
It’s time to get your business in shape!
First, re-visit all of the great member benefits that are included in your membership and set weekly goals to actively participate, just as you would do upon joining the gym
Attend a networking mixer, educational program or major event - much like taking a yoga or spin class
Meet with a Chamber professional for some one- on-one time to discuss the benefits that will best enhance and strengthen your business - just as you would receive coaching from trainer at the gym
Keep a weekly or monthly log of your Chamber activities, as you would plan to log your workouts
On your visits to the gym, you’ll meet new people and possibly get some new tips on ways to get in shape - just the same, meet with a Chamber Ambassador - we have a number of members who volunteer their time to help others leverage chamber benefits
Just as you would prepare to have all of the equipment and workout gear to have a successful experience at the gym, do the same by gearing yourself with the chamber tools available to you such as enhancing your personal profile on our website, submitting a blog or an ad to showcase in our bi-monthly electronic newsletter.
