Chamber’s “Mission Possible” Event Aims to Boost Membership

The excitement is building.  The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce is gearing up for a membership event like no other.  The “Mission Possible” membership drive, taking place January 25-26, will involve 275 Chamber members volunteering their time and working against the clock and against each other to sign up new chamber members and create a greater awareness of the important role the chamber plays in the business community. 

The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce has partnered with national organization Your Chamber Connection (YCC) to take the membership event to the next level.  YCC specializes in high energy membership campaigns that allow volunteers to think outside of the box while building the membership base.
