As chamber executives we wear many hats!
We’re advocates for our small business members, we educate our members through our programming, and let’s not forget that networking thing we do.
Being a connector IS the business of today’s chamber executive.
We connect people for many different reasons. We connect people to:
- Solve problems
- Generate business
- Create a better community
- Educate/influence our government officials
I wrote about it in a previous BLOG POST – the statement that your network is your net worth. If you have a strong network, you’ll be a great connector.
The more people in your network, the more people you can connect. That’s the position you want to be in as a chamber executive.
Position yourself as the go to person in the business community!
