Around the country, membership in Chambers of Commerce is dwindling. But things in Duneland are actually on the rise. The Duneland Chamber of Commerce is about to host a Membership Campaign unlike any this community has ever seen. Chamber president Maura Durham said “Our goal is to bring in 42 new members to the Chamber in just 3 days! We are the voice for business in the Duneland community, and we want our voice to be louder tomorrow than it was yesterday.” It’s a daunting task, but Durham has plenty of help lined up.
Along with over 50 volunteers, Membership180, a Membership Development company from Greenville, SC (www.Membership180.com) has been enlisted to bring their experience in recruiting, engaging and retaining new members to Duneland. “The Chamber has done an incredible job of lining up volunteers to help us with this process,” said Jay Handler, co-founder of Membership180. “With their leadership, we will easily surpass the goals they’ve established, and create a greater community awareness of the important role the Chamber plays here in Duneland.”
The campaign is scheduled for October 4, 5, and 6. The Membership180 team has been working with the Chamber staff, the Board of Directors & dozens of volunteers to prepare them for the hard work ahead. “We’re ready!” said Durham. “This is an exciting time for our community and I know we’re ALL up to the challenge!” For more information on how you can get involved in the campaign and help support the growth of business in and around our community, contact the Chamber at (219) 926-5513.
