No, we are not meaning engaged in marriage. We mean be involved.
People join business groups for different reasons. Most of the time, people are looking for new business opportunities, which is awesome! However, do those people do “the work” to find this new business from the group?
To get the most out of a business group membership, the least that you should do is show-up. Come to the events and you will be surprised on how many times you will find possible referral partners or customers.
But it’s not all about you and your needs. To be successful with any networking or business group comes down to one word; GIVE. Give your time. Give your advice when asked. Give referrals and introductions to others. Like the old saying goes “Give and You Shall Receive”.
Northwest Chamber Members- How are you engaging with this 200+ member business organization? Do you come to events? Do you send in your news or promotions, so we can help to spread the word? Are you on a committee? If you can answer “Yes” to one or more of those questions- GREAT! If you cannot, let us help you.
If you would like to make your Northwest Chamber Membership work for you but are not sure how, contact Sally Shapiro-Gould at firstname.lastname@example.org. An easy way to start is to come to our many networking events.
We have two this week! We have our Monthly FREE Drop-In Dinner Networking event tomorrow, November 13th, at Palio- Foundry Row. We also have a FREE Lunch & Learn where you will receive free lunch while networking on November 14th.
Come out this week and make your membership work for you! Hope to see you there!
