When I hired a Chamber intern, I hired a young professional, who had been trained (by the Chamber) in the parts of my business in which I needed the most support - client contact and business building! My new employee has confidently and eagerly stepped up to take over my client intake process. She also helps me grow my business by attending Chamber events when I am unable to attend them myself. Her experience with the Chamber made her a natural fit for the support I needed.
My affiliation with the chamber has been a wonderful experience and has presented many valuable opportunities.
Business After Hours are always a great time. There is always a great turn out and fun networking games at every event. Its a perfect time to meet some new people and strengthen some established relationships.
By being an ambassador with the chamber it has allowed me to network with numerous people and business owners. We have aquired many new opportunities to do kettlecorn events for business parties or celebrations, which lead to more referrals from those. Thanks Dawn for all your help! We could have never got this kind of exposure without the chamber!
I enjoy being a member of the Chamber Board because it has given me the opportunity to build new friendships and business relationships.
Egyptian Workspace Partners joined the Troy Chamber two years ago, and in our opinion it is the best Chamber out of the four Chambers we belong to.
A month ago we took the Chamber up on one of their many resources they have available called the Cookie Run. On the cookie run the Executive Director of the Chamber Dawn let us pick 10 Chamber Businesses that we were having a hard time getting into. Dawn went with us as we visited 10 companies, and we secured 3 appointments for future business. To me this was an assume way to meet these customers, and get into their businesses.
Once a month the Troy, Maryville, Marine & St. Jacob Chamber has a meeting called Fueling Up. I would encourage your company to go to their website at www.troymaryvillecoc.com or call their office at 618-667-8769, and ask when the next fueling up meeting is so you can find out all the resources this Chamber has to offer.
I have worked with a handful of area chambers. The Troy/Maryville/St. Jacob/Marine Chamber of Commerce was by far the most welcoming and fun. The staff is dedicated, the members are involved and after 5 years, I still look forward to attending events. Dawn and Kim go to extremes to take care of members and help them make the most of their membership.
In 2011 I looked into furthering my personal and professional relationships with the Troy community and I felt very confident and comfortable in becoming a member of this Chamber. The connections I've made has been extremely important to my Company's growth. Sure, the business side is important, but I've also gained a great network of business associates that has become priceless!
It's a pleasure to be a member of such a proactive Chamber of Commerce with professionals who truly care about the community and each and every member! The Troy Chamber of Commerce simply “gets it” when it comes to making a successful Chamber!
The Chamber's job postings page is the first place I go when I am recruiting for a position in the office. We have gotten a lot of qualified applications from posting our open positions on that page.
As a new member I feel right at home. Within the first few months I felt as if I have been apart of the Chambers for years. All the members are welcoming and are truly interested in you. If you are newer to networking this is the Chamber for you!
Dawn, I can't thank you enough for the cookie run! We had a blast together! It was wonderful as a new chamber member to meet so many current chamber members. They loved the cute cookies from Honeydip bakery. I was able to make some great connections and some of them may become clients. The in person introduction was invaluable, I'm sure I could have walked in cold and not been able to have the warm interactions we had. Thank you again for spending so much time with me. I am very appreciative!
