Breaking Records in Springfield, MO

Last month, over the course of three days, 410 business and community leaders worked to help the 2012 Chamber of the Year award winning Springfield Area (MO) Chamber of Commerce bring in a total of 425 new members. This impressive achievement surpasses the chamber’s own record for the most investment dollars brought in by a chamber in a three-day membership event.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment, not just for our chamber, but for the community as a whole,” Chamber President Jim Anderson said. “The fact that we could do this not once, but twice, shows just how committed the business and professional community is to making a difference here in Springfield.”

Anderson attributed much of the event’s success to membership consulting company Your Chamber Connection. Jimmy Cusano and the team at Your Chamber Connection have been in the membership development industry for 24 years and have worked with more than 630 chambers across the United States and Canada.  In 2010, during ACCE’s annual convention in Milwaukee, Your Chamber Connection also assisted ACCE with its own membership event to bring in new members.

“Our chamber volunteers made this happen, not once but twice,” Brent McCoy, the chamber’s vice president of membership said.  “They, the volunteers, have worked non-stop over the last three days. You can only be the best chamber in the world if you have the best member-volunteers in the world--enough said.”
