The Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce TRC campaign Reaches $100,000.00

The Eastern Shore Chamber of commerce is just two weeks away from wrapping up the Total Resource Campaign for the 2014/2015 year.  This campaign provides the chamber funds to coordinate efforts between citizens and businesses and help plan for a healthy long-term growth.  Development, growth and quality of life, along with having funds to increase a member's value are the Chambers' principal considerations.  Also, it helps fund our two school programs which partner with the high schools on the Eastern Shore.


This campaign is supported mainly from amazing volunteers who are out in the community speaking with businesses and sharing the value of sponsorships and membership.  With two weeks to go, these volunteers have reached over $100,000, a $32,000.00 increase from this same time last year.


This is an opportunity for any business to look at the different levels of sponsorships and secure their company in reaching a large area of people.  Sponsorships are available for all businesses.  Those wishing to receive more information or have any questions, please contact Amy Dial at 251-928-6387 


A very special thank you to the member businesses that have committed to the chamber and an invitation to member businesses that have not yet committed to please take advantage of this               
 opportunity before it ends.
