The Pacifica Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Town Hall Chamber Member and New Membership Recruitment Assembly on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm @ Nick’s Restaurant. The guest speaker is Keith Woods, a well known and respected advisor in the Chamber of Commerce Industry. Mr. Woods will present one of his most popular programs, “Why Chambers Matter…If Not for the Chamber,” that will inspire both Chamber and prospective members. Combined with wit and humor, Mr. Woods will discuss the importance of a “21” Century Chamber and how vital a Chamber is to the quality of life and economic well-being in a community. His presentation will also highlight ways in which businesses can partner with the Chamber and become more involved in effective sponsorship, ambassador and governmental relations programs, communications, team building and more.

Is it to late to attend? This looks interesting. Registration was by 9/24, does this posting mean that there is still open space to attend?

Chambers and members can form their communities at nualerts and stay connected with multiple channels (sms, email, etc). A lot of Bay Area Chambers are already using nualerts to offer members incredible marketing exposure. Check out our Chambers http://alturl.com/xve8a
