The Brownwood Area Chamber of Commerce will kick off their 2017 Total Resource Campaign (TRC) on Tuesday, January 17, 2017. Volunteers are selling sponsorship opportunities to area businesses to not only help promote local business, but to support the Chamber of Commerce events and activities.
This year's campaign is being led by Ken Harriss and Daniel Hutson with the theme of "And Then Some" in the memory of Dr. Don Bostic who passed away in 2015.
"Dr. Bostic was a big supporter of the Chamber and was the driving force behind starting the TRC," Harriss said. "The theme of 'And Then Some' asks business and community leaders to give more than the minimum back to others. This was a philosophy that he stood for and we want to honor and remember him for that through this year's campaign."
The TRC is designed to give Chamber members numerous opportunities to become more involved with the Chamber on various levels through greater public awareness of Chamber programs, projects and events. In addition, the TRC makes it easier for businesses to budget for the coming year and helps improve the efficiency of Chamber-sponsored events.
Volunteers will be contacting local businesses during the six-week campaign looking for support for these sponsorship opportunities. Volunteers earn prizes as they work through the campaign.
Through the Total Resource Campaign, the Chamber staff reviews and evaluates current programs and develops a menu of sponsorship opportunities tailored to fit any budget, big or small. Over a six-week period, beginning January 17th, 6 local volunteers will work with Chamber members to design an ideal sponsorship plan for the entire year. The TRC is designed to be fun and exciting for team members with rewards available throughout the campaign.
Throughout the United States, Total Resource Campaigns are gaining support and popularity among progressive chambers of commerce and have been embraced by chamber members, board leadership and staff because of the beneficial nature of the campaign.
