The SouthCoast Chamber will be holding a Membership Campaign on Tuesday, September 12th and Wednesday, September 13th from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Please consider giving three and a half hours of your time with fellow business leaders, all while sharing the value you derive from being a member. The day will include a complimentary lunch. In addition, valuable prizes will be awarded to top recruiters!

The Chamber provides numerous services for its members, including networking and professional development, export services, an electricity discount program, free and low cost marketing, school-to- career initiatives, trade shows, as well as government affairs programs and advocacy to encourage a positive business climate for the New Bedford Area.

In addition, the Chamber’s New Member Campaign will also feature several “join now” incentives for businesses and organizations that enroll with the Chamber, including free advertising, web site listings, admission to Chamber networking programs and more.

If you are unable to volunteer your time, please consider donating a prize or gift certificate for those who will be participating in the campaign. Your support will help make this Membership Campaign a great success!
