2016 Membership Drive Under Way

logoThe Odessa Chamber of Commerce is seeking members for the 2016 membership year.

What a great time to be a chamber member! I cannot believe this year has flown by so fast. It has been an amazing year filled with wholesome information and good laughs. I truly have enjoyed working for such an amazing organization and am proud of the work and commitments that our members have shown to better our organization as a whole. We truly have been growing business and growing community.

Our meetings have been filled with good information that any business owner can bring back and apply quickly. We are working hard to find some guest speakers that fit into the small business model for next year. Please check our website or add your email address for speaker information as it becomes available.

We have added SurveyMonkey! to our tools used to find out what type of information you would like to see come to the meetings. After every meeting, a link will be sent out that sends you to a quick 5-question survey. Your feedback about the guest speaker will help us judge how important the subject is and how beneficial it is to your business. We look forward to hearing from you!

You may notice that this letter is coming a bit earlier then in past years. Our hope is to have all members ready for action by January 1. This way, we will have a better chance to get everyone signed up for newsletters, advertising opportunities, Business of the Month participation, and meeting updates before you can miss a thing! We hope you take this opportunity and prepare your business for the New Year as well. Planning your marketing strategy now gives you more time to organize and prioritize your sales and events!

Last year, your officer team updated the mission statement and logo. We have felt the buzz and excited to continue into this next year. We hope you will join us as we have some more amazing projects and speakers planned for 2016.
