Extend your Reach with the Chamber’s Total Resource Campaign
In addition to your membership’s built-in benefits and marketing opportunities listed above, members can extend their reach and awareness by sponsorship through the annual Total Resource Campaign. TRC runs for six weeks beginning in late January through mid-March and is an opportunity to both financially support the Chamber and spread awareness of your business through sponsorship of Chamber programs, events, electronic media, and publications.
Marketing your business through the Chamber is a proven and cost-effective way to attract new customers. If unable to sponsor, you may volunteer to attract new members by participating in the running of the TRC campaign itself. Volunteers enjoy an easy channel to get connected to others in the business community as they market sponsorships and Chamber programs.
