How can you connect with the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce? Well let me tell you.
Did you know that all members, regardless of membership tier, get at least one complimentary admission to our networking breakfasts held the first Wednesday of the month. This is a free opportunity to meet new potential customers and find vendors that can support your business. I hope to see you there.
Several years back we implemented coffee & conversation - a round-table discussion for local business owners and managers. Discussions focus on issues important to Chamber members and the small business community. To keep it conversational and informal each coffee & conversation is capped at eight attendees. Check the Chamber’s calendar for a list of dates and topics.
If you’re not an in-person networker you can connect with us online. Tag us on social media – fb.com/gscoc and @grtrspringfield – and be part of the dialog. Social media is where things are happening, and the Chamber’s Facebook page is where we share info with the Greater Springfield community and beyond.
Another online option for engagement is a robust listing in the Chamber’s online business directory. Access the directory from the main navigation bar on the Chamber website, springfieldchamber.org. To update your business listing start by logging into the Member Information Center (MIC), springfieldchamber.org/login.
Did you know that once inside the MIC, Chamber members may self-post many types of descriptive content for display on the web? You may self-post your company news, job openings, free events you’re hosting, member to member discounts, social media links, hours of operation, directions to your office and so much more. If your membership is at the Enhanced tier or higher you may add logos, photos and videos. Log in and check it out.
Is it community information you need? Are you preparing your marketing plan and want to know what’s on the economic development horizon? Call the Chamber office, 703-866-3500. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing some insider info.
If you prefer small groups and a specific subject matter join a Chamber committee. Participation with a committee allows you to network with like-minded business leaders, learn new stuff and support the Chamber. Some committees meet monthly, others quarterly and a couple meet virtually or for special projects.
Take control of your involvement. You get out what you put in. I look forward to seeing you, or hearing from you, soon.
