Working for You | The Voice of Business in the Tri-Cities

 

In 2018, the Membership Committee’s main objective is to grow our membership and reach the 1000 member milestone by the end of the year. To help us reach our goal, we have implemented a referral bonus program, added events, and programs, and offer an online platform where members can voice their business perspectives.

In January, we launched our first-ever, and very successful, referral bonus campaign. Two lucky members were awarded a ticket each to see Former US First Lady, Michelle Obama. With the help of our business community, we welcomed 22 new members!

Our second referral bonus campaign could grant YOU access to The Art of Leadership for Women on June 25. Refer a business or join the Tri-Cities Chamber and you’ll be entered to win! Connect with our membership team, Wendy Mein or Judith Lucas to learn more.

The growth in our membership allows us to offer our business community more events and programming. Over the past year, we’ve introduced a member-to-member exclusive discount program,  #ShopChamber, and we’ve created a program to develop the next generation of professionals, the Tri-Cities Young Professionals. As we continue to grow, we look forward to being able to offer an even larger variety of events and programs!

Most recently, we’ve partnered with the BC Chamber of Commerce to bring a revolutionary survey software to our membership. To participate, sign up at bcmindreader.com. By answering periodic surveys, you will help us better advocate for business to the regional and provincial levels of government – with the cold, hard data to back up our positions.

We are working hard to help connect, educate, and advocate on behalf of our membership. I welcome your ideas and feedback on how we can better serve you.
