The Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce Membership Event in December held at the Great Wolf Lodge evolved into one of the unexpected highlights of 2013. Not only did it generate an impressive 14 percent increase in the Chamber’s Membership roster gaining more than 260 new members, it also pushed the Chamber past the prestigious 2,000-member level, further solidifying the Chamber as the voice for Northern Michigan’s business sector.
More than 180 volunteers stepped up to assist in the Membership Event. Special honors went to “Godfather” Pat Heintz and “Godmother” Peg Johnkoff for recruiting the most new members. Thanks to all the volunteers who pitched in, plus our new friends at Your Chamber Connection who brought the winning formula for their most successful event ever in the state of Michigan.
The Chamber is planning a special showcase event in early 2014 to highlight our new members, so keep watching for more information. You can view a list of our new members and images of the Membership Event by clicking here.
