New Member Orientation
Chamber hosts free open house for new members; attendees to learn more about benefits of membership and how to build business through Chamber programs and services
Did your business recently join the Whittier Chamber? Are you a new employee who wants to know more about how to maximize your company’s existing Chamber membership? Or do you simply need a reminder on all the Chamber has to offer? If so, you’re invited to join us for the Whittier Chamber’s Meet ’N Greet Open House and New Member Orientation on Thursday, October 17 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Whittier Chamber office (8158 Painter Ave.).
“The New Member Orientation isn’t just for “new” members,” states Whittier Chamber President Bonnie Watje of Acro Printing, Inc. “Every time I attend the quarterly open house event, I get to learn something new about the Chamber that my business can utilize. What I find is that the Whittier Chamber moves with the ‘times’ meaning it changes as the business world changes, and that helps my business keep up with current legislation, trends, marketing tips and other important topics. Plus, I get to meet so many new people! It’s definitely time well spent for any member looking to get involved or prospective members who are thinking about joining.”
As members arrive at the Chamber office, they will visit a series of informative stations intended to help them better understand how to utilize their membership benefits, such as special events, the Business Focus newspaper, the Chamber’s website and free networking events like Wake Up Whittier, Tasty Tuesday and after hours mixers. In addition, refreshments will be provided in the Chamber Board room allowing members to mingle and exchange business cards in a fun, casual atmosphere.
All new and prospective Whittier Chamber members are encouraged to drop by anytime during the New Member Orientation & Open House. Please RSVP by calling the chamber office at (562) 698-9554.
