Stafford Chamber Meeting Be There or Be Square
If you have not attended a Stafford Chamber meeting, I must say that you should. Whether you are a Stafford Chamber member or thinking of becoming one, I feel it is one of the best activities you can do to grow your business. Your attendance at a Stafford Chamber meeting gives you the opportunity to showcase your business and the floor to promote your upcoming events. I personally find it to be a fantastic catalyst for you to network with key community players and local professionals face to face. You will also get a heads up about community events, which will allow YOUR BUSINESS to be a valuable source to your customers.
Our meeting Tuesday November 10, 2015 started with the usual networking opportunity and Open Buffet. We announced 2 new members making the membership 105 and growing. Yeah! The Chamber also announced it will be transitioning a new Treasurer, Michelle Peccarelli.
As mentioned about new community affairs, volunteers are needed for the upcoming 2016 “Touch a Truck” event. Please reach out to Safford President Rocco Manochio or our Vice President Steve Rizzo. Touch a Truck is a unique FREE event for the Stafford community. Where families can climb, explore, touch and learn about different types of trucks/vehicles. Imagine being able to sit in a big rig!!! The plan for this event is now underway: Vehicle application guidelines and vendor applications are available on this site.
Also don’t miss out on a great networking event. Have you heard of speed dating? Well check this out, SPEED NETWORKING. It’s a great concept and it works. There is no need to feel shy or coy about walking up to strangers at a networking event. This event is designed for networking and puts you face to face for that purpose. The next speed-networking event will be held 12/4/15 at Applebees @8pm. Don’t miss out; I have begun to develop some great relationships from this event.
The Stafford chamber meeting is a place where you can get the word out about your business and it’s mission. And you are able to get ideas to grow your business from other professionals and guest speakers
All this and good food too! Please Note: the next meeting appetizers will be served in place of dinner and the fee will be reduced to $20 from $25 for members. The Stafford chamber is consistently doing all that it cans to maximize efforts for the good of its members and the community.
Please plan to attend the next meeting, and encourage you fellow business neighbors to attend and/or join the Stafford Chamber of Commerce. We are a network of potential clients, knowledgeable peers and community partners waiting for you to connect. The next meeting is December 14, 2015. Come and celebrate the end of the year, develop new relationships and make plans for the New Year with a game plan to grow your business with the Chamber!! See you there.
One last thing, in order for us to build awareness for the Stafford Chamber of Commerce within the community and surrounding areas, please feel free to share information from this site on your social media pages.
