Word from the Chairman

On behalf of the North Chamber it’s my honor to lead this vibrant community of businesses and professionals. Thanks to your membership, the North Chamber is building business and leaders across Bexar County as we advocate for business, provide networking, recognize and cultivate leaders.

We always say, “Participation is the key to maximizing your membership.” That’s true, but we want to help you amplify your involvement with additional resources and benefits. In an effort to engage more fully, we conducted a membership survey, and you, our members, communicated the primary importance of professional relationship building, advocacy, information, participation and visibility.

To address these focus areas and provide opportunities that enhance your membership experience, the North Chamber will revise and improve membership benefits to reflect the resources our members value most, including: communications, visibility, referrals, discounts/offers and exclusive member programming. Revised membership benefits will be available and announced in Fall 2012.

As we work to improve connectivity, we will continue to host events that address mobile technology and social marketing and engage our growing online communities. While we will no longer mail a printed newsletter, in August 2012 we will introduce new digital media featuring an email newsletter and website with more member visibility via social communities, blog content, photos, and enhanced online directory and referral tools.

Already we are posting member news on Facebook and Twitter, and as we develop and introduce new media, we will post member content to our blog, spotlight content in our email newsletter and website, and post blog links to our social media profiles based on membership level. I do hope you’ll like and follow us and share and re-tweet often!

Now is an exciting time for the North Chamber, our members and San Antonio. We are on the cutting edge of programs in leadership, sustainability, infrastructure and marketing, and we welcome you and your employees to be a part of it all.

It’s our pleasure to serve you and we hope to see you very soon.
