Chamber Boot Camp for New(er) Chamber Executives

Being a chamber professional can be a little overwhelming, especially if you are new to organization management and the chamber industry. The boot camp provides the perfect opportunity to ask questions and receive input from seasoned professionals with proven ability in the field of chamber operations. Lunch will be provided.


Sustainable membership, volunteer, and sales growth requires much more than just maintaining the status quo – it calls for innovation, creativity, and a strategic approach. We are pleased to have Shari Pash, founder of Strategic Solutions for Growth, join us for an interactive approach to propel your chamber forward. Shari is a dynamic speaker, industry professional, coach, and trainer. Her extensive success in revenue generation, new market identification, and business development has earned her numerous industry awards of excellence throughout her 30+ year career.

Please join us for a daylong participatory and enthusiastic professional development training to give you the right tools, strategies, and plans to create sustainable growth and success for you and your chamber.
