Click to View April 3, 2012 SAVANNAH -- The Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce’s Forward Savannah Membership Campaign launches April 5 with a reception at Tubby’s Tankhouse in Thunderbolt. Teams, CEOs/Managers of the teams and Chamber leadership will host this 5:30 p.m. – 7: 30 p.m. kickoff reception to celebrate the start of the 12-week program. Teams will enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres as they get energized to reach this year’s goals of $40,000 in new memberships and $12,000 in event sponsorships.

Rick Monroe, Monroe Marketing, and Cathy Hill, Georgia Power, serve as the Forward Savannah Campaign Chairs. Nearly 40 teams completed training sessions for the campaign during the two weeks at the Chamber office. Most of the 80 total campaign volunteers participated in the three training sessions to learn the ins and outs of selling memberships and the value of the Chamber.

During the 12-week membership drive, volunteers and teams will be recognized for their efforts at Reward Sessions.
