Networking a major Chamber opportunity

Janna Bass Chamber director

September 12, 2013

The Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce is very excited about the continued growth of the Chamber. Through constant support, membership, and networking throughout the business community, the Clinton-Sampson Chamber of Commerce is able to be the largest business network within Sampson County. With a membership of 401 different businesses/organizations, I want to say thank you to each of our members. Each membership ranges from an individual membership, non-profit organizations, small businesses with few employees, to large agriculture and industrial businesses with hundreds of employees. The Chamber could not be a part of the community without each of you and your support. So again, I thank you.

As many of you know, one of the opportunities within the Chamber is networking. Personally, I am a firm believer in the power of networking. Because we do not know who our next customer may be and how we will connect, networking can be powerful. Through the Chamber, we offer over 70 networking opportunities each year, including the one I’m highlighting that takes place tonight, Thursday, Sept. 12.

I want to highlight tonight’s Business after Hours as it is not only an opportunity to expand your client list and network, but also a chance to meet each of our new members who have joined from September 2012 through September 2013. Over 65 new businesses and organizations have become a part of the Chamber during the past year. We encourage you to come out tonight from 5 until 6:30 p.m. to the V.F.W. Post No. 7547 in Clinton (150 Veterans Lane, Clinton) and visit each new member’s booth to learn about their business, enjoy light refreshments , door prizes, and much more. Bring your business card and let the Chamber work for you!

On behalf of the Chamber’s Board of Directors, we once again would like to thank you for your support of the Chamber and we are honored that you take the time to network and get involved in one of the many opportunities through the Chamber. We are looking forward to yet another great new member showcase and business after hours tonight, we hope to see you there!
