Summit chamber seeks new members

FRISCO – The Summit County Chamber of Commerce is celebrating Labor Day this year by offering more than $1,500 in incentives to encourage local businesses to join the chamber during its Celebration of Labor Membership Drive. The chamber has recruited from the local business community more than 36 volunteers with proven success stories from their own chamber affiliation.

Volunteers will contact more than 300 Summit County businesses Wednesday, Sept. 4 and Thursday, Sept. 5 to encourage them to join the chamber. The volunteers are competing for community recognition and a variety of team and individual prizes.

“My business has quadrupled this year because of contacts I have made at chamber mixers and as a volunteer involved with chamber projects,” said event team leader Nancy Ewing, owner of Creative Angle. “I want to help other businesses grow through the networking opportunities available at the Summit County Chamber.”

Jocelyn Beam-Walson of U.S. Mortgage Express said joining the chamber was rewarding for her.

“I secured four closings from contacts made at last year’s Business to Business trade show,” she said.

“It more than paid for my yearly dues and my show registration fee. I want other small business owners to be aware of these great benefits offered by the chamber.”

This year, some of the special incentives for joining during the Celebration of Labor drive include a block of free employment classified ads at the Summit Daily News; bonus spots with KSMT and Krystal 93 radio; 50 percent off company banners with Creative Angle; free credit hours from Colorado Mountain College; and one free month of high-speed Internet access from NetBeam.

The chamber also is waiving all administrative fees during the drive, as well as offering to all new members processed by Sept. 5 a free, 50-word, broadcast e-mail that will reach more than 700 members.

Last year, the chamber met its goal of bringing in more than 50 new members completely through the work of volunteers.

“The chamber could not function without this loyal group of volunteers,” membership director Karen Seising said.

“I hope the business community recognizes the dedication to the organization that is exhibited by the many volunteer hours devoted to the chamber.”
