Chamber campaign for event sponsors, new members
Chamber Chairman Francis Spruiell announced Neal Slaten, Tipton Ford, Inc., as chairman of the Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce’s second annual Total Resource Campaign (TRC). This seven-week revenue generating effort kicks off on Sept.1 to reach a goal of increasing sponsor participation in chamber programs. The campaign ends Oct. 18.
The TRC will create teams of volunteers under the leadership of vice chairs: Angela Wiederhold, Point A Media; Bill Teague, Teague & Assoc.; and Matt Rocco, Etech, Inc.
The campaign involves recruiting chamber volunteers to market sponsorships for chamber events, while also seeking new members for the chamber. Volunteers assist companies with choosing options best suited to meet the businesses’ marketing needs for calendar year 2012.
“The Total Resource Campaign is a great way for volunteers to meet our area’s top community leaders and business owners while working directly with many of the chamber’s most dedicated leadership,” Spruiell said, “so call Kelly Daniel, the Chamber’s membership and marketing manager, at 560-5533 to take advantage of this great opportunity to get involved.”
All campaign volunteers can look forward to the Kick Off Celebration set for 7:30 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 1 at the Courthouse Annex.
