“Join the chamber, stay in the chamber, and be active in the chamber. The collective influence of the chamber and it member will have more effect on the area than you can imagine.”
I am David R. Sudberry. I was the Local Manager for Frontier Commutations in Martin, Tennesse for over 30 years and I retired April 1, 2010, which just happens to be April Fool's Day. I did not fool around long as I rekindled myself as the Marketing Manager for WLJT-DT Public Television for West Tennessee. I have never looked back and charged forward with my new job. I have had much success because of organizations like the Obion County Chamber of Commerce.
In order for your businesses to survive in today's market place you must do more than hang your sign, hand out business cards, make some calls, visit friends, and wait. WLJT-DT is a member of the Obion County Chamber of Commerce so we can stay informed and involved in what is happening in Union City and Obion County. The chamber is an excellent opportunity for additional exposure. Your business is listed in the chamber directory and most important of all come to Business Matters each month. It is a social event with business connections, learning and information sharing all rolled in one. Make the social connection and the business opportunities will follow. Networking is building that personnel relationship and trust that develops from shaking hands and sharing the latest stories about family, friends and yes even work. The chamber gives more access to the business activities and events in our community than any other resource.
The chamber is like many other organizations. You will get out of the chamber what you put into it. Join the chamber, stay in the chamber, and be active in the chamber. The collective influence of the chamber and it member will have more effect on the area than you can imagine.
