WE are the Chamber!
Let’s Grow Our Voice
Membership Development Campaign


Do you know a business that has not yet joined the Garner Chamber of Commerce? Maybe a business located near you, or someone you do business with?
The Chamber Board of Directors is encouraging you to recruit one new member during our membership campaign, running through 5:00 Thursday, February 23. 
As the Chamber (members, board of directors, staff)
WE are the voice of business.
WE serve our community.
WE advocate for members' business interests.
WE connect our members with other businesses and with elected officials.
WE help members save money through member-only benefits.
And WE want to grow our voice!
Our organization is governed by the business community (through the board of directors) and is made up of local businesses.
WE believe strongly in the work of the Chamber and we want to build our organization. The larger the organization, the stronger our voice, and the more effectively we can work.
For each new member you recruit, you will be entered into a drawing for $500. Bring in multiple members and increase the chance to win!  There’s another way to win $500:  the person bringing in the most new members will receive $500. 
There will also be a drawing for new members.  One new member will receive their membership renewal for free.
