Membership Team Honored for its Efforts

The many great things the Indiana Chamber is able to accomplish are due to the support of member businesses around the state. Making sure those members receive a strong return on their investment, and in turn helping those companies and their employees succeed, is the role of the Chamber’s membership team.

That team was recently recognized for its outstanding efforts in 2008. At the annual Association of State Chamber Professionals conference (that’s membership folks from state chambers and business associations around the country), the Indiana Chamber earned a first-place award for Highest Membership Growth in numbers and a second place for Highest Market Share in numbers.

Knowledge certainly plays a part. In a profession often marked by high turnover, the Chamber counters with Tim Brewer (director of membership) and Brett Carrington each having more than nine years of experience in the organization. Tim Wood and Marcus Fehman also bring their talents as membership managers with Sarah Hankley in the important role of membership coordinator.

Bottom line: If you are already an Indiana Chamber member, this group will help you get the most out of your investment. If you’re not on board, see what you’re missing.
