2016 Webinar Series
Wednesday, September 21st —“Sponsorships: Maximizing Revenue & Packaging Benefits”
Show me the money! With more and more chamber revenue coming from non-dues sources, excelling at generating sponsorship dollars is becoming a MUST. This session will focus on best practices at BOTH generating sponsorship dollars for your chamber AND packaging important benefits for your chamber members.
Presenters: Scott Ashton, Oceanside (CA) Chamber
Pam Ridler, CCE, Castle Rock (CO) Chamber
Wednesday, October 12th —“City-Chamber Relations: How to Advocate Business-Friendly Policies with Local Government”
In most communities, working with the City Hall isn’t optional for chambers - it’s a must. But is it possible to be the voice of business without alienating the chamber from city government, or without losing money? This webinar will take a look at chambers that receive government funding as part of their revenue stream as well as chambers that don’t, and will explore how they handle being a business advocate while staying on positive footing with city staff and elected officials.
Presenters: Ann Hutchison, CAE, Fort Collins Area (CO) Chamber
Jill Lederer, ACE, Greater Conejo Valley (CA) Chamber
Wednesday, November 9th —“Best Practices at Getting Member Feedback”
We all want to know what our members think, and the W.A.C.E. Toolkit Survey is a great first step...but then what? Should we be surveying major employers, conducting focus groups, and doing business walks? Are there other ways to ask our members their opinions - and have them actually respond? This session will bring some best practices to the table to help chambers of any size get a pulse of what their members are thinking and how to best use that information to move your organization forward.
Presenters: Jason Camis, Gardner Edgerton (KS) Chamber
Chris Romer, IOM, Vail Valley (CO) Partnership
Wednesday, December 7th —“Membership: Getting Members to Recruit Members”
Imagine if every one of your existing members would recruit one new member for the chamber. While that may not be probable, this session will reveal tried and true best practices for a successful membership committee and the essentials of putting together a successful membership recruitment campaign (with or without engaging an outside company).
Presenters: Simon Brackley, Santa Fe (NM) Chamber
Toni Padron, ACE, Carlsbad (CA) Chamber
Tom Pierson, ACE, Tacoma-Pierce County (WA) Chamber
