To the Editor:
The Greater Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce needs your readers' help.
As a member of the GLACC you know the value of Chamber membership. You know that a strong business community needs a strong and vibrant Chamber of Commerce. Strength comes from having a large number of people/ businesses as members of the Chamber. Will you help us increase our membership numbers by participating in the Greater Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce Annual Membership Drive?
We are asking that you team up with another current Chamber member and visit Non-Member Businesses and talk to them about making the decision you made and join the Chamber. This year's drive will take place over a three-week period. This will give you plenty of time to fit these calls into your already busy schedule.
The drive will start on Monday April 30 and continue through Friday May 18. We will provide you with all the materials you will need to make these calls. You will be working from lists that we will generate at the Chamber Office. But you are also free to call those with whom you have close relationships.
We will be holding a kick-off meeting on Thursday Morning April 26 at 8 a.m. here at the Chamber Office. We ask that you and your partner attend that meeting. We will give out the lists and materials for the drive and answer any questions you have about approaching these potential members.
We have partnered with the Seminole Casino and the team that recruits the most new members during the drive will receive a nice prize from the Seminole Casino.
We truly need your help and would appreciate you committing time for this project. Please call Inke Baker or me at the Chamber Office and let us know you will be helping. Thank you for all you do for our Chamber and I look forward to working with you on this 2012 Membership Drive.
