Membership appreciation month wrap-up

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce would like to thank its staff and board of directors.

As Chamber Membership Appreciation Month draws to a close, the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce would like to thank staff and board of directors for helping with the Herculean task of trying to personally visit as many of the 600-plus members as possible, to present official ‘thank-a-thon’ cards. We all enjoyed meeting face-to-face with members, and were thrilled with the warm and welcoming reactions. It comes as no surprise that, in this day and age of electronic communications, people appreciate a handwritten thank you note and a personal visit.

In addition to ensuring members feel appreciated, your Chamber of Commerce has been working in a spirit of collaboration with the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce. We ‘shared’ membership ads on The Eagle Radio throughout the month, and presented a Work the Pond networking workshop for their Chamber March 13.

We have also been working with the Campbell River Chamber on a task force for the North Island Hospital Project. As the project unfolds, check www.comoxvalleychamber.com for updates and notices of this development.
