WHAT DOES THE CHAMBER DO FOR YOU?
For me, my Chamber membership has been the best and most efficient way to connect to my market. Whether it be personally or professionally, they have always been a highly effective resource. As a business banker and Branch Manager in the Oconomowoc market, I am able to meet business principals, connect them with other professionals in the area as needed, and provide them with superior financial services.
HOW HAS THE CHAMBER MEMBERSHIP BENEFITED YOU PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY?
Since becoming the main Oconomowoc Chamber contact for Associated Bank in 2008, I have found numerous opportunities to get involved. I attend many of the events throughout the year to network with the ever-growing and evolving membership. I am a Chamber Ambassador, which allows me to welcome new members and be a resource for so many business people in the area. I also participate in both the Young Professionals group and the Membership Committee. These add additional spheres of influence for me both personally and professionally. Finally, I joined the Board of Directors this year to really make a difference and assist the Chamber.
WHY WOULD YOU RECOMMEND CHAMBER MEMBERSHIP TO OTHERS?
I recommend Chamber membership to almost any business owned or operated in the area. Not only does the Chamber have a dynamic and supportive Director, but the entirety of the Chamber resources, and the rest of the membership are there to support your business. The Oconomowoc Chamber differs from other Chamber experiences that I have had in the past; they really work to provide the maximum number of opportunities throughout all possible lines of business. Whether it be educational and developmental opportunities they facilitate through the Leadership Developmental Series, panel interactions and HR Roundtable; networking opportunities both within and outside of membership; marketing support via the Chamber website, eblasts, and member lists, or information-sharing opportunities such at the State of the City breakfast with the Mayor....the opportunities are virtually endless.
WHAT HAVE YOU ENJOYED MOST ABOUT CHAMBER INVOLVEMENT?
My business has thrived as a result of my Chamber membership. Without the networking opportunities the Chamber offers, it would take longer and be much more difficult to connect with new businesses to the area. Finally, I feel the Chamber staff and membership is extremely supportive and is always a phone call or email away!
