River Region Chamber launches effort to help businesses
Published 5:57 pm Wednesday, October 14, 2020
As the business organization representing our region, the River Region Chamber continues to strive to stay connected with the needs of the business community, especially during these times. One key element to doing this is consistent outreach to the members to ensure they are aware of the resources available to assist in whatever area of challenge they are in!
For us to continue to serve our mission to “Grow, Strengthen and Unify”, we constantly evaluate the programs we provide to our members. We do this by surveying the members on their needs to gauge their thoughts on ideas and offerings to help improve their business success. We realize there is no such thing as a “one size fit all” when it comes to providing “value-added” service. Small businesses want to grow their business. They want opportunities to network and meet new people so they can build relationships that can hopefully lead to future business. Larger businesses want advocacy. They look forward to opportunities to share key issues with our legislative delegation at all levels.
During this pandemic, we have all had to get more creative with how we do business. One key concern that came from the business community was communication. With that said, the Business Development committee quickly compiled a short 2 question survey to gauge feedback on 2 questions:
- What is your biggest need today?
- What is one company you need to connect with the most?
“I would like to encourage all businesses to take our short survey. This survey will give us the tools and information we need to connect through communicating and networking with large businesses and small businesses. We can all help each other be great!
Our goal is to circulate this survey link https://forms.gle/MrX7UhdygVi4bjee7
to ALL businesses in the tri-parish area. Can you help us? If you know a business that is not a member but is a registered business in the tri-parish area, please share the link and ask them to complete.
Sincerest thanks for your help with this effort. Be sure to check our website for a listing of current members and upcoming events at www.riverregionchamber.org. Be sure to follow us Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/riverregionchamber.
