In 2012 the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce launched a new Membership Council program. The council servies as an outreach and retention committee designed to involve and inform new members of the chamber benefits and upcoming events and programs. Council members are volunteers who, on behalf of the chamber, make good-will calls to encourage strong continuing membership and active support of chamber programs.
Council members assist in membership retention by contacting new chamber members regularly. They relay informaiton, identify business challenges, and help new members to feel welcome and comfortable at chamber events.
