The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce has been growing in recent years. Our membership is increasing year-over-year by about 100 new members. We are very pleased to welcome so many new enterprises to the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce.
At the Pasadena Chamber, we are also seeing an increasing in the number of renewing companies. Some of that can be attributed to the slow leveling off of our local economy. We also hope these renewing members are seeing increased value for their membership in the Pasadena Chamber.
For the second year in a row, Joan De Souza of Joan's Candles and Gifts recruited the most new members to the Chamber. She won a free full-color ad in our 2014 Business Directory, Community and Visitor Guide as a reward. With the new fiscal year, our recruitment efforts and incentive begins again. The company that refers the most new members between July 1, 2013, and June 30, 2014, will receive a FREE full color ad in the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce Business Directory, Visitor and Community Guide. The ad has a sale value of $795. If you refer a new member to the Chamber, please be sure to let Kelly know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 626-795-3355. There is also a space on the membership application for a new member to tell us who referred them for Pasadena Chamber members.
