In the Chamber-issued press release, Knoxville Chamber president and CEO Mike Edwards said, “Many businesspeople spend their days acting like firefighters, dealing with the items that require their immediate attention. The latest sales prospect, the need to return phone calls, customer concerns, and many other things keep businesspeople from focusing on long-term issues, planning, and company policies. Chamber Member MD allows people to be fire inspectors. They can take a step back, understand why things happen, make corrections, and formulate strategies to make the business stronger and more healthy.” As the only chamber of commerce in the country providing a service like Chamber Member MD, the Chamber is in the process of reregistering the program with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
