"Come Together" Membership Campaign - Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce

2015 ACE: Award of Excellence

Over 400 attendees -- politicians, business owners and employees, non-profit organizations, school administrators, and even some students -- gathered for the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce. It was a perfect illustration of “coming together,” a strategic chamber initiative launched in late 2014.

"Testimonial" Membership Campaign - St. Tammany West Chamber of Commerce

2015 ACE: Grand Award

St. Tammany Parish continues to be in the midst of a population boom, having been Louisiana’s fastest growing parish in terms of real numbers for the past three decades. This was accelerated in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Situated on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, just 24 miles from New Orleans, population estimates for St. Tammany Parish went from 213,000 to 280,000 almost overnight. Following this influx of residents, there has been an influx of businesses -- some relocating from the south shore as well as new business start-ups. St. Tammany West Chamber of Commerce (STWCC) realized the need to develop a marketing campaign that highlighted membership benefits so as to educate and inform all the new businesses.

“WE” Membership Campaign - Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce

2015 ACE: Grand Award

The Nashville Area Chamber is recognized as a leading organization in Middle Tennessee, representing our member businesses and stakeholders in critical initiatives. However, as with most chambers, our organization is challenged with an image of being traditional and conservative, typically with only perceived rational decision-making reasons for being a member. Considering that loyalty is best reinforced with emotive factors, we developed a campaign to address rational and emotional decision-drivers for member acquisition and retention. Our approach also integrates the “shared” interests and experiences of our membership.

#UniteLoudoun Social Media Campaign - Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce

2015 ACE: Award of Excellence

In 2014 the Loudoun Chamber, for the first time in the organization’s history implemented, the most successful membership and marketing in the organization’s history. The two objectives of the campaign were to grow the membership and increase our brand awareness in the community. The first objective was an incredible success as the Chamber grew by 170 members in two days, and over the course of the campaign season, over 200 additional members joined the Chamber due to our campaign’s ripple effect. The second objective, which we share with you today, was to expand the chamber’s brand as an organization which strives to Engage, Advocate for, and Connect our community to promote a world-class quality of life in Loudoun County. We determined that a community driven social media campaign was our best hope for success, and out of that the #UniteLoudoun Campaign was born.

“A Natural Resource for Business” Annual Report - Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce

2015 ACE: Award of Excellence

With rising printing and mailing costs, the Chamber’s primary means of communication is -- at the members’ request -- email. Yet even with frequent communication through newsletters, emails and media releases, anecdotal and secondary research confirmed that many members and prospects do not realize the scope of activities the Chamber is influencing, especially in the areas of advocacy, education and workforce development. When surveyed about their top challenges in February 2014, 48% of members said finding skilled workers and 51% said government regulations and tax issues. Yet, when members cancelled, they were not aware of the Chamber’s accomplishments on their behalf in these areas. For more than a decade, the Fort Worth Chamber has included its Annual Report in the Annual Meeting program at one of its largest events of the year with 700+ business leaders. In 2014, Chamber leadership decided to create an annual report separate from the event program to draw more attention to measurable results.

"Grow" Membership Campaign - Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce

2015 ACE: Award of Excellence

The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce (GPCC) launched a branding campaign in September 2014 to better communicate the value of membership. We recognize that our service offering can be complex (we offer professional development programs, networking events, members services, meeting space, and business advocacy) and that new/prospective members have a hard time understanding how membership can specifically meet their business needs. Our solution is the “Grow” branding campaign.
