I’m a Member……Now What?
As a member of the Greater Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce you are in good company. The Chamber includes nearly 700 member businesses that represent over 27,000 employees in the greater Idaho Falls area! Each of those members and their employees who participate in Chamber activities do so for different reasons. Some are members because the Chamber provides credibility by association – meaning your customers see that you are a member of your local chamber and that adds to your business credibility in their minds. Some are members because of our advocacy efforts on behalf of the entire business community; knowing that we are working with our local, state and federal elected officials throughout the year to ensure a pro-business culture. Some are members because of the cost effective marketing, networking and educational opportunities. Some are members because the Chamber provides multiple professional development and engagement opportunities for their employees.
Whatever your reason for being a member of the Chamber, our staff wants to make sure that you are leveraging your membership to the fullest. One important opportunity that many businesses do not leverage is engagement of employees. Do your employees all know that through your company’s membership they are welcome to participate in any Chamber activity (Business After Hours, luncheons, professional development speakers, etc.) – several of which are free? One easy way to get them connected is to let them know that through the Chamber website www.idahofallschamber.com, they can connect to our Google calendar, sign up for text alerts to be sent to their cell phones, or sign up for our email distribution list. They can also like our Facebook page as well.
Would you like more information about marketing & networking through the Chamber? Contact our staff by emailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to share the available opportunities with you.
Would you like to know more about our advocacy efforts? Email email@example.com and our CEO, Michelle Holt will gladly get you connected.
Let us help you make the most of your Chamber membership, but know that if you can’t get out of the office, your Chamber is here working on behalf of your business and the business community every day!
