Joining your local chamber of commerce is one of the most effective (and least expensive) things you can do to build, grow and expand your business. The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce has been growing in recent years. Our membership is increasing year-over-year by about 80 new members. We are very pleased to welcome so many new enterprises to the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and our greater Pasadena area.
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 hope these renewing members are seeing increased value for their membership in the Pasadena Chamber.
For 2016-17, Craig Valine of Enhanced Marketing Performace recruited the most new members to the Chamber. He won a free full-color ad forhis business in our 2017 Business Directory, Visitor and Community 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, 2017, and June 30, 2018, 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 $825. If you refer a new member to the Chamber, please be sure to let Kelly know by emailing email@example.com 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.
