Getting The Best From Your Membership
"Earlier this year, I rejoined the Chamber and decided that although I may not be great at attending events, I would try to contact as many other members as I could.
A few emails later, I’ve now met with several members and have been overwhelmed with how generous they have been with their time, advice, and support. I’ve learnt about businesses I never knew existed, products not even released yet, I’ve learnt tax tricks from graphic designers, marketing ideas from adventure tourism, and HR advice from insurance brokers… all this free priceless advice, not from specialists, but from the experience of one business owner to another.
Five years ago I cancelled my Chamber membership after not seeing any benefit in it…but as I’ve since learnt, you only get back what you choose to put in."
