The Chamber officially kicked-off it’s first Total Resource Campaign on November 1, 2014. This campaign includes the membership drive for 2015 investments and gives the members an opportunity to pledge their resources for sponsorship of annual 2015 events. Through one-on-one meetings with every Chamber member this November and December, our Executive Director, Megan Umscheid, will bring the Total Resource Campaign to you personally as we gear up for another fantastic year! Meeting with members one-on-one will enable the Chamber to communicate new benefits and additions to the Membership Investment levels and will allow businesses to share their own 2015 goals and needs from the Chamber. We look forward to conversations with the members and appreciate your partnership!
