It?s Loud, It?s in Your Face and You?ll be Bouncing Off the Walls!


August 9, 2011

While most Chambers of Commerce struggle through their annual membership drive, the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce  will host a ‘Membership Event’ called “Tune Into Greer” that is like none other. For two and a half days, over 100 volunteers will work against the clock and against each other to sign up new chamber members and create a greater community awareness of the important role of the Chamber of Commerce. The event is organized by Jimmy Cusano and a group called Your Chamber Connection. Their specialty is high energy membership campaigns that allow volunteers to conduct ‘out of the box’ membership fun while building the membership base.

“It’s about business,” says Event guru, Cusano. “The Chamber of Commerce is the business community. This brings everyone together to build our chamber. It’s a membership-based organization and most people don’t like ‘membership drives.’ With a Membership Event they come together in a competitive fun setting and tell the chamber story. When others hear about everything the chamber does, all of a sudden you have a great deal of enthusiasm for the chamber, and a great deal of support.”

The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce invites the community to “Tune Into Greer” and take notice of the exciting things Greer has to offer. The campaign will take place September 20-22. An investment in the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce helps equip the Chamber to continue to provide networking, business and advertising opportunities for members while maintaining Greer as the best place to live, work, and play. Members are encouraged to help with the campaign by sharing their story with clients, vendors, business partners and friends. Businesses who are not members are encouraged to ‘tune in’ and see all of the benefits.
